At Athena Sunshine Boxers we breed for quality not quantity meaning that we only have a litter or two a year. We breed high quality dogs with conformation, temperament, and health in mind. All of our puppies are hand raised in the home as if we were keeping them all, not in a kennel. They receive as much love and socialization that you would provide in your own home. We sell only healthy puppies to approved homes with a two year health warranty covering genetic disorders in writing. Puppies are vet checked and receive all age appropriate shots and dewormings as well as microchip identification. They have their dew claws removed and tails docked for show within the first week of life. Puppy packs go home with each puppy they include a leash and collar, bag of premium food, toy, copies of health screenings and pedigree of each parent.

*Pet puppies are sold only on spay/neuter contracts with limited registration and all breeding potentials are co-owned until passing their own health tests. This is to keep the boxer up to its breed standard and produce the best quality dogs. Pets are always placed in carefully screened homes. Health and temperament should be your first choice when it comes to your puppy. Many breeders do not health screen, which means you would be gambling with your puppy's future health. Buying a pup from someone not screening for genetic heart disorders could cost your puppy its life.
