Ronard Boxers started in 1985 with the acquisition of a lovely, classic fawn girl we called "Gretchen". Gretchen was bred to CH. Rochil's Grande Marshall, LOM and produced our first home-bred champion, CH. Ronard's Kaiser Marshal from her one and only litter. Ronard Boxers breeds selectively and seldom, but puppies are sometimes available to approved homes.

We are members of the American Boxer Club, the Bluebonnet Boxer Club, and the Houston Kennel Club. We participate in and support the activities of these clubs. Our mission is to strive to better the Boxer by careful breeding, and we are pleased with the success Ronard Boxers has had and is continuing to have. While we thoroughly enjoy exhibiting our beautiful boxers in conformation, Ronard Boxers understands that not every show-quality boxer will enjoy being shown. We recognize the vital role that the responsible pet owner plays in the sport of purebred dogs. Ronard Boxers believes strongly that happiness, as well as excellent care, is crucial to the health and longevity of our wonderful boxers. We respect the decision of many boxer owners to keep their boxers as beloved pets in a stable home environment, and applaud them.

We are located in Sugar Land, in the Greater Houston area in southeast Texas. Our boxers live in our home and are beloved pets before, during, and after they become show dogs.

Never in a million years would I have thought I could fall in love with a dog. Not just any dog, of course, but a Boxer. A tiny, fawn girl with the blackest mask - blacker than midnight, softer than velvet. Brought home to Houston from the piney woods, it took her no more than 10 minutes to rule the house - a house left lonely by the passing of my last elderly Maltese girl. We had no clue about boxers - "Gretchen" would be our teacher. She was our beloved "Miss Gretchen Hildegarde", and brought us many years of joy with her antics. We did not know about crate training, so Gretchen taught us what a good idea it is by destroying day by day, piece by piece, our sectional sofa. There were many other boxer lessons to be learned: Ficus plants make interesting marks on white carpet when they are pulled from their pots and dragged from the front of the house to the back of the house, and are really fun toys. It is a wonder we all survived one another. But, we not only survived, we thrived. Because of Gretchen, we became, and are still, addicted to Boxers.
