Hello Kim, When I first began looking for a boxer puppy, I spent many hours viewing websites across the country until I got home to Colorado. It was as if the universe had put me in touch with you at Box Elder Creek Boxers. I could not wait to speak with you on purchasing my future friend. Not just were you professional and expedient with phone calls, emails and texts but most of all the exact care and vibes I was looking for in a breeder. I counted the days to finally pick up Bella (1/29/17) and boy was I excited. The moment I saw Bella , I knew this was the perfect choice for a boxer. There is not a day that goes by I look into her eyes and see the most loving, loyal, playful, fun, cuddly and very very intellegent puppy staring right back at me. I'm so thankful for finding your kennel and look forward to purchasing another puppy from you soon.Sincerely,Christian & Bella Salida, CO./Hilton Head Island,SC.
Hi Kim,Today I was looking at some puppies on your website and saw a gallery of pictures full of owner submitted pictures and I thought I would send one of our girl. We bought Holly in 2008. We came and picked her up all the way from North East Wyoming just before Christmas. She is an amazing creature and a wonderful part of our family. She is spoiled beyond words and has some playmates too. She is gentle and sweet. We love her! Our 18 month old loves her to pieces...she wishes he would leave her alone at times, I am sure. But still, she plays with him and lets him climb all over her. We have never had such a well behaved dog, I have actually never seen such a well behaved dog. She is smart as could be, knows lots of tricks and is just the best dog. Sorry, this is a bit of a ramble. But we really love her and thought you should know what an amazing girl she is! Chuck,Courtney and Marcus and our fur family~ Holly, Maya and Baby
Hi Kim, Just went by your website and wanted to send you a thank you. Both the boxers we got from you are amazing and get along famously. They are gorgeous and both have the best personalities. At a little over a year old, Ananda is fast outgrowing Prajna (who is 2 now). Joe and I couldn't be happier and wanted to express our gratitude to you this Thanksgiving. I attached some pics for you. - Joe and Erica
Hi Kim, Just wanted to check in with a few hiking pics of Petey. Hard to believe he is already 11 months old! He is my "demo" dog for Sit Means Sit Dog Training and heads to work with me almost every day. His energy & temperament is awesome! He is exposed to many different dogs at demos for clients, & countless people when he goes to shows with me at the Convention Center, Western Reserve, etc. I have given your name out many, many times & have actually had people try to buy him from me at the shows because he is such a good boy! Needless to say, he is not for sale! Thanks, Sandy Brady, Trainer Sit Means Sit / Southeast Denver 303.803.7909 See our amazing videos at www.sitmeanssit.com/dog-training-videos/ As seen on ANIMAL PLANET, The Outdoor Channel, and ESPN.

Hello Kim, Just taking a moment to give you a little update on Bozco, from Luna's litter. He is a wonderful addition to our family. He has a very loving attitude and all the curiosity one could expect from a puppy. His temperament is perfect; a healthy and manageable amount of energy. Bozco already knows the sit, lay down and shake commands; as well as knowing how to ring the bells on our door to go outside. It was almost effortless to house train him and he's never had an accident in his crate (knock on wood); which he also took to with very little effort. The only command that we've had to work on is "come here"; but he has no issue with the "stay" command. As expected with the boxer breed, he is very intelligent and sociable. We've also received numerous compliments on his beautiful brindle coat, as well as his enormous paws. Once he's gotten his final round of shots, we will be signing him up for training classes where we hope to perfect his leash skills. Thank you for providing us with such a wonderful companion and we'll be sure to keep you updated on his progress. I've included some photos of the little guy for you to post if you like.
Cheers, Ron and Lindsey
Dear Kim: I thought I would send a few pics of Beauxcoup, the most perfect creature i know on the planet. What a dog - fun, funny, respectful, well mannered, happy, kind - he is perfect!!!! He is also adorable. I thank you every day for giving this wonderful creature his start in life, and am so thankful that he ended up in my life. He's beautiful, inside and out. Thank you for breeding perfectio. Hope all is well - I follow your litters, and love the pics. Best, Lisa & Beauxcoup - and the rest of boxermania (Juneaux, Domineaux, MInk Stolemyheart, and Ty)
Hi Kim: I just wanted to give you a little update on Aalto! Looks like you have your hands full with a bunch of adorable puppies! Aalto is still doing really well! He is almost 11 months and about 55 pounds. He is the sweetest dog ever! He continues to train easily and is very obedient! He has started running with me and is doing an amazing job. "Heel" comes naturally to him because he is so loyal! The running helps get some of his energy out. My husband and I recently moved to a new apartment with a dog park right outside and he LOVES that! We take him over there and he will just run and run and run and run and run! I have attached some recent pictures! I also wanted to express what a great experience purchasing Aalto from you was. I recently have had a friend and my aunt go through breeders to purchase different types of dogs and their experiences were completely different then ours. They don't get pictures and updates of their puppies and when they do it is impossible to tell which puppy is theirs because they are all group pictures; their breeder is not as upfront about what is expected of them; and (I know this might be silly, but) their breeder doesn't call their puppies by his/her name. Aalto practically knew his name when we got him! Both breeders are reputable breeders, but clearly not doing as good of a job as you did : ) I just wanted to let you know what a great business you are running!! Sincerely , Laura
Hi Kim, Just wanted to give you an update on Coco (Deja/Buck 10/11). She has become the most awesome Boxer ever! Slept through the night from Day 1, house trained in 2 days, crate trained by Christmas. Learns commands within hours. More importantly she's the most loving dog I've ever had. When she's outdoors, she always has to look through the window to see what the family is doing and if she really wants us, she will rest her chin on the window sill or screen door and look beautifully pitiful until we come to her. She likes the boys. She sat in my 6 yr old sons lap every night until she go too big. But then again she'll let my wife stroke her chin and give belly rubs, while I'm required to play ball and keep away with my feet but It's all good. She's a great thief/magician, every thing we put near her somehow disappears; toys don't last long. So many people also don't realize that boxers come in brindle and always ask "what kind of dog is that?" We're very happywith her and I couldn't be more glad to have found you when I did. Keep up the great work. (Enjoy the pictures) Sincerely, Chris
Hi Kim! I was going through our old e-mails and saw this one from you. I wanted to give you an update on our 'little' girl, Daisy. She is amazing, and is now 42 pounds. The vet thinks she will be approximately 75 pounds...but we will see. The vet called her a "1%" dog, meaning that of the dogs he sees, only 1% are as great as Daisy! She is great with the kids, and is doing very well with her obedience training. She is getting along very well with our pugs, although she is a bit bossy with one of them - but they are working it out. We have also discovered that she likes to catch, and eat, birds in our back yard. Pretty shocking the first time it happened, but she is a good little hunter. Plus, she is so proud of her find...as long as it stays outside, we are good with it. Thanks again for sweet Daisy. We have attached a picture we took of her at a soccer game in September. Take care, Rebecca
No worries, Kim! I know you have a TON going on at your house with your family and puppies running around. Here are is a recent photo of Guinness at 6 months. He already weighs in at 58lbs, so it looks like he might end up bigger than both of his parents! We can't believe how quickly he's growing. He has such a playful, loving personality. His two favorite things in the world are to run crazy circles in our back yard and cuddle on our laps. We can't wait to see his reaction after the first big snowfall this year! I hope you're having a great fall! -Laura and Galen
Hi Kim, I just wanted to shoot you an email and let you know how Aalto is doing! First of all, he is by far the sweetest puppy I have every met in my entire life!! He is such a lover and just has the sweetest personality!! He has been really easy to train (he potty trained in about 5 days and currently knows sit, stay, heal, and speak like a pro)! Also, we are always getting comments about what a beautiful boxer he is! His coloring is just perfect and he is the perfect size!! He is currently (at 16 weeks) 22 pounds!! The vet goes on and on about how adorable and perfect he is! Overall, we are beyond happy with Aalto! He is just the perfect addition to our family! He is totally in love with our Yorkie, she took a little time to warm up to him, but now they are just the best of friends! As I am finishing this message, I just realized that all the pictures of him are on my husband's computer! I will send you a picture to accompany the email when he gets home! Thank you so much for giving us such a perfect puppy!!! Sincerely, Laura
Hi Kim, I just wanted to give you an update. We went to the vet, and she gave him a clean bill of health. I have alreadys signed up for a medical preventative care package. So, Koda will be well taken care of. I am glad there are Boxer breeders, like you, who take such wonderful care of these precious babies. Of course, Koda has already won the hearts of everyone he has come in contact with. Especially our boys. Thank you ! Richard
Kim, We just wanted to let you know that Olive is doing great. She is turning into a real farm dog, as she comes to the clinic with me everyday and checks out the horses and cows. She's a huge motivator for the little kids we treat, and I can already tell she's going to be great with children. She is so playful, but she comes back to "home base" (my lap) every 2 minutes or so to sit and get some loves. She's completely housebroken, rings a bell to go outside, and knows "sit," "down," and "boogie." We're just waiting for the last round of vaccinations so we can get her into puppy kindergarten to learn some other manners! I attached some pictures... they're not the most recent, but trust me... she's growing like a weed! Thanks for the perfect puppy! Sincerely, Amy and Billy
Hi Kim! Sorry it has taken us so long to send you an update on Zaddie, but as you can guess we have been very busy with our new puppy. She is such a stinker and has loads of personality. She is a fearless little gal who just wants to be friends and play with everyone she meets. She slept through the night right from the beginning and is really getting the hang of potty training. She LOVES to play with our other dog, Marley as well as all of our friends' dogs. Thank you so much for her, as we love her so much. Everyone at the vet's office keeps remarking how "perfect" she is, and we agree. She has gotten her first two rounds of shots and only one more to go. The vets say she is in great shape and is a perfect puppy! At her last vet visit this past Thursday she was 11.5 lbs - so she might be a petite little gal. We still cannot believe how much she has grown from that day we came to Colorado to pick her up. She seems like such a big girl now! I am attaching a few pictures of Zaddie and her sister Marley, as well as a few others. Thanks again for taking care of the puppies and making sure that their first few weeks are happy and healthy. We love her so much!
Kim, I know I said I would send you pictures and updates on Zepplin (formerly known as Rowdy) and I have done horrible at doing so. It has been close to two years now and this is the first time I am emailing you with pictures of Zepplin. I just happened to pull up your website yesterday and noticed a picture of Zepplin under your past puppies pictures. I thought I needed to fulfill my promise and send you an update and a couple pictures. Let me tell you, Zepplin has been wonderful and a great addition to my family. He is the most friendly and playful dog I have ever seen. Every day seems like Christmas for him as he is always so happy. He gets along great with everyone, people, kids, other dogs (yes, even the dogs that don't really like him). He just wants to run and play all the time. I am very happy that he is now a part of my life. Looking at your current litters makes me want another boxer. I am a true boxer lover now and couldn't see myself with any other breed of dog. -Travis
Hi Kim, Attached are some updated pics of Leroy! He is 70 lbs. now and as handsome as can be. He considers himself a lap dog of course!! Hope all is well! Kirgan family
Hi Kim! Sorry Its been so long since I have updated you on Lloyd! He has been doing great. I get compliments on him all the time. We walk by the Lake next to my house almost everyday and stragers come up saying they have heard about Lloyd from friends and neighbors and knew him just by looking at him. He is a total sweetheart, loves the snow, blankets, and football! He has grown so much, he is almost as tall as my sisters 1 and 1/2 year old boxer and Lloyd isnt even 4 months yet! He still thinks he is a lap dog though :) He gets along great with other people and dogs. Jsut wanted to send a few pictures to show you how he is doing! It was really hard to narrow it down to the selection I am sending you as there are so many great ones! Sara

Kim: Just wanted to let you know you that I thank you every single day for wonderful Beauxcoup. What a joy this little guy is. He is so good, so smart, so loving. He is all anyone could want their new puppy to be. Regards, Lisa
Hi Kim - I wanted to let you know that I have passed along your website to at least 10 people in the last couple weeks. Major gets lots of attention when we go out. Everywhere we go, people stop us to tell us how handsome he is and enquire where we got him. He is absolutely a pleasure and has both Jon and myself wrapped around his little finger. Here is a link to the photos I took this week.
Hi Kim! I couldn't resist sending you an update. Beau is AWESOME!!! He weighs 63lbs now and is learning a lot of self control. Our initial worries about aggression are a distant memory. He plays so well with other dogs. And if a bossy one comes around and barks at him while playing he lies down and rolls over. However, if we are walking with a leash and another dog approaches - he stays his ground."don't come close to my mom" - is his message. All of your recent litters are adorable. Hope you found great homes for all of them. Take care and best wishes to your family.. Barb
Hi Kim, I know it has been a long time since we have updated you on Cru. We thought today would be a good day for pictures and a message since it is his birthday! Cru has grown up so uch and is always learning new things. He loves all of his toys especially the frisbee! This summer Cru got to travel all over the northwest and even to Canada! He has been to Wyoming (of course), Montana, Utah, Idaho, Washington, and Whistler BC Canada. His favorite activities include going for walks, on and off leash, as well as bike rides. I'm really excited to have a dog who is such a good boy off leash on public trails when we are biking or hiking with him. Cru loves all other dogs (whether they like him or not), people, toys, and food (he is very treat oriented). Thanks you for such a great pup. Tiffany & Chad
Hi Kim, We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Jack is almost ten months and he is 71 lbs. What a big boy! He loves to give kisses and hugs and always thinks that he is the best lap dog. He loves playing with his best friend Stoney. Stoney is a boxer that lives down the street. We still try to make it to the Boxer Club on friday nights, but its been pretty cold. Jack likes playing in the snow and trys to eat the snow flakes that are coming down. Its funny to watch. He makes us all laugh pretty hard, especially when we have had a really hard day at work. We don't know what we ever did without him! Anyways, I don't want to take up too much of your time. We'll keep you up to date with Jack. Best wishes, Tanya, Time and Jack
Kim, This is a recent picture of our Zues. He was born on July 28th, 2006. We took him home in September 2006. He has been a constant companion, and member of our family. Thank you for the amazing boxers that you breed. We can't wait to get Zues a sister to play with! Thanks, The Smiths
Kim, It is hard to believe that the baby is almost a year old. She is impossible to keep still and thinks that reflected sunlight off of the back storm door is evil. She has been our saving grace over the last few months. No matter how serious life gets, Desi reminds you that things are never that bad. She is really developing into a great dog. She has a stubborn streak but she always seems to know when to back off and when to give in. She definitely runs the house and that includes making sure that the foxes and raccoons know their place. Here are a few pictures that I took of her last night. I have a customer from England that taught her how to show off her "spotted bits". She also has a knack for flipping her ears back as she goes. What a great pup. I wish we could have ten of her but I think that god only made one and that she is, indeed, our Destiny. Cheers!
Hi Kim, sorry it's been a while. Wow, Zoie is now 1 1/2 years old!! I just wanted to give you an update... she is wonderful and is still the love of our lives. She still goes on daily walks (sometimes as many as 3) to drain some energy and we just bought her - her very own tread mill for the snowy cold days, can you believe she loves it?! Kim you wouldn't believe how big she has gotten, a little over 60 lbs! Here is a current picture with my Step Son, she adores him. I hope all is well, and take care! Tyra
Hello Kim~ It has been a while since we have updated you on Marley. She is doing great with our new daughter! Her and CJ just love each other and play all the time, however Marley has to be touching CJ all the time - as you can see in the pictures. However we can't take them to the dog park together because Marley gets really protective with CJ and starts fights with other dogs that try to play with CJ... so we take them seperately! Marley has been a wonderful addition to our family!! attached are some photos.. hope you are doing well - we enjoy looking at your website!! Emily and Tyler, Marley and DJ too.
Hi Kim! David was just her with Wilson. He just had his 12 week check up and shots and is growing like a weed! He and my 3 Westies have been having fun running around the back yard! (It takes a village to raise a boxer!) He is such an amazing dog! Very lovable, smart, and full of energy. David and his family just adore him! He is the best granddoggy I could hope for! He mentioned he had some trouble sending you some pictures so I am sending these taken just a while ago. Let me know if you have any trouble getting them. Anyway, we all love Wilson so very much! We thank you for bringing such a wonderful dog into all of our lives. He and David have an incredible bond already, and his wife Jen has the best time with him. He is amazing with the kids. Once when I babysat Wilson, my grandson came over to me and very seriously said to me, "Grandma, I really love this dog so much, you can watch him for a while, but you can't have him OK? Then he kissed him and walked out the door with mom. Too cute! I can't tell you how very impressed we were with your exceptional care and true quality breeding of this marvelous breed. These are puppies that will bring so much joy and love to so many families. I thank you for all you do to insure that the best of the boxer is given to each and every litter. Best Wishes, Susan
Hey Kim, Just thought I would send a few photos of the goofy one for you. She is about 30 pounds right now and I do not think that she will stop any time soon. She has my wife Ana wrapped around her finger which bites for me because I have to be the bad guy when she acts up. She is completely house trained, she sits, she heels and fetch is the mainstay of her diet. She has problems with stay but hey, she is a boxer. Stay will come with time. Thanks so much for the beautiful baby. She has been a sweetheart from the moment we picked her up and we are lucky to have such a Destiny. She is a happy, healthy, curious, energetic ball of love. I was a bit hesitant when we got her because it had been years since I had a baby puppy but she is all that we could ask for and more. Thank you again for being a real breeder of a wonderful breed. Enjoy the photos. Joe
Hi Kim! We took Titan in for his physical today. He of course, passed with flying colors. The vet was very impressed with everything about him, and he already seems to have grown some since Weds. Thank you again for everything. The family is completely in love with him. We couldn't be happier. We will most definitely be sending pictures of him in the future to let you know how he's doing. Thanks! David
Hello this is Donya and I wnted to say thanks again for breeding such a wonderful boxer. Champ is a wonderful fun loving dog and we are enjoying every minut with him. He was so easy to potty train and boy is he just a fast learner!! Thanks Again, Donya
Dear Kim, I wanted to email you to let you know how Tara is doing. I am also trying to get some great pictures for you and the site. We changed her name to Lexie Cheyenne, the kids picked it. She is fabulous!!! She chews everything I own and really loves the other dog and the kids. She loves to greet us at the door and chew on everyones back packs and cell phones and key chains and you name it... She is the greatest dog ever... She sleeps on our bed and we got her stairs to get up, she loves the dog couch... yes we have one... she loves the beetles for some reason and she plays and attacks weeks.... She did great with new food and she growl talks to us all the time like a person... She is wonderful....Pictures are coming very soon and I cannot tell you how grateful we are to have her and we loved your place, the dogs were so happy and well kept and my family will always get their boxers from you. I love looking at the new litters as well.... Thanks so much, Jeff and Tamara and Family and Lexie and Kyra.
Just wanted you to know how great things are going - we cannot believe how much in love with him we are! He is an absolute doll. SUCH a cuddler, and hasn't had an accident in the house yet, AND has been sleeping great through the night! Hardly a peep out of him! He has such a wonderful temperment, has been eating great, and the vet said he looked fantastic! Thank you so much again, and we'll send some cute pics soon! Teesha & Jeff
Hello Kim~ I just wanted to let you know that Marley is doing great and her and CJ just love each other. We went to the Boxer Bash 2006 put on by the BCOC (Boxer club of Colorado) this past weekend and there was a professional photographer that took pictures of both dogs. She said that Marley has a great chance of getting into the 2008 "Boxer" of "Boxer Puppy" calendar! She will keep us informed and I will let you know. How exciting. She also loved the agility course! We have a star in the making!! Emily & Ty
Hi Kim! Zoie is doing great. She is already becoming a big girl. 19.0 lbs. Slept through the night day one and potty trained by day 3. She is an excellent puppy. We've got her in a puppy training class and she is doing pretty good... stubborn like a boxer but very smart. She loves her home, and has already become very protective of her back yard (she doesn't care for rabbits much). She's going on walks a few times a day and everybody calls her pretty girl, and they just love her. She's become the love of our life's! I don't know if we will ever want a different breed. I do have some pictures I'll have to scan them and get them over to you... I'll do that soon. We are so thankful for you! Thanks so much for getting us the best little girl we could have asked for! Thanks also for checking on her! I'll be sending those to you soon! Byebye for now, Tyra
We just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving, Diesel is doing great, growing into a big boy. He is curious, playful and loving just like a boxer should be. He gets compliments about how handsome he is all the time. He just graduated from his first puppy class, he will already reliably sit, lay down, stay for a minute or two, come here, shake, high five, spin in circles on command, roll over and play dead, go outside and get into his kennel, and stand up from a sitting position. He is such a smarty pants and learns really quickly. He also likes to sunbathe and play with friends at the dog park. We have enjoyed him from the moment he came into our lives. Steve says he doesnt know how he went without a dog for so long, and loves having him. Great first dog experience for him. There are some recent pictures of him attatched... my how he's changed! Carolann
Hi, You would not believe it but she is crate trained and 99% potty trained already! She is a lover-dog and has such a mild temperment. She is playful and loves my sister's cairn terrier! My parents' dog, on the other hand, has taken some time to warm up to Addy (we changed her name again)! She is beautiful! I have recommended you to 3 different people who approached me on the street to say they haven't seen such a good-looking boxer in a long time. Her color and markings are great. She is on the raw food diet so her coat is very shiny and she should be as healty as possible for a lifetime with this and a lot of exercise. Although she's sleeping a lot, she gets a ton of exercise. We play with her in the park everyday and she plays with my family's dogs everyday, too. Thank you for bringing her into our lives. I hope your pregnancy is going well - good luck! Love, Jay and Alexandra
Hi Kim, I thought I would forward these over to you, as Jaco may end up in some KONG advertisements! These were some of the better pictures from his first ever photo shoot yesterday. A rock star already at only 3 months, Everyone keeps asking me where we got him. Hopefully I can drum you up some customers in the near future. Enjoy! Corry (KONG Research)
