Pronounced "So-Ley", Soleil Boxers is located in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area, (Northern California). "Soleil" is the French word for "sun", which happens to be our last name. We believe in proper health testing, and we do not support backyard breeders nor puppymills. Though we do not breed often, when we do plan a litter, we to strive to produce healthy, long-lived, conformationally and temperamentally sound boxers. We believe in a "well-rounded" boxer, with beauty, brains and longevity as well.
We participate in conformation in the AKC, USABOX-supported Sieger shows, IABCA & UKC rings, however our main focus is in AKC and the USABOX-supported Sieger shows. Because we believe boxers are more than just a pretty face, we hope to maintain the working aspect of our breed, and believe our dogs should be able to excel in performance and working events as well. There are Soleil-kids in the Agility, Nosework, Obedience rings, and out training for dog sport (schutzhund/IPO) as well.
We support the choice to crop and dock, and also appreciate the "au natural" boxer. Our boxers are not just show dogs nor are they just working and performance prospects, they are first and foremost members of our family and the same goes for puppies we have placed.
We want to thank Maribess Johnson, our wonderful friend and mentor who started this all. She was the only one to take a chance on us when we were just a "couple of college kids".
