Welcome to Cape Fear Boxers
Cape Fear Boxers is located in Wilmington, NC, a charming coastal town on the Atlantic ocean. We specialize in European boxer puppies from true German bloodlines.
We have a small in-home program because we feel that is the best way to provide as much time and attention as is required for raising healthy, well-socialized dogs. I do not work outside of the home and I am fully involved in their nurturing, early development and training.
Our litters are born in our home. The moms are in the room with the puppies. They sleep near us in case mom or babies need help during the night. We have a Puppy Cam on so you can watch them as they grow and develop.
When they are about four weeks old, the puppies move into the family room. We set up a large puppy pen so they have room to play and explore. The family room is in a busy area where they are exposed to our family, our other dogs, children and visitors. Puppies live with our family and experience the vacuum cleaner, kitchen noises, television, phone calls and doorbells, etc.
In addition to providing a supporting, stimulating, caring environment, Cape Fear Boxers is committed to the health of your puppy. We make sure our breeding dogs meet or exceed the testing requirements for European boxers. We test for genetically inheritable diseases such as Hip/Elbow Dysplasia, Aortic Stenosis/Subvalvular Aortic Stenosis (AS/SAS), Aortic Valve Disease, Boxer Cardiomyopathy, Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC), and Degenerative Myelopathy. And we don’t stop there. Each and every year our breeding dogs are monitored and tested for Hypothyroidism and Boxer Cardiomyopathy. We have relationships with reproductive veterinarians and a general care veterinarian. Your Boxer puppy will be dewormed regularly, receive age-appropriate vaccinations, a well-puppy exam at 8 weeks, and a Health Certificate.
Our Boxer puppies are loved, well-socialized, and cared for as a part of our family until they become a part of your family. You will be able to call on us for support for the lifetime of your pet.
