about Denbar Boxers

Denbar Boxers, located in Pierce Colorado, is one of the premiere boxer breeders in the rocky mountain region.  We have made a significant impact on the national scene as well, garnering numerous national awards. All our boxers live in our home and are members of our family. At Denbar Boxers we are committed  to breeding only quality, health tested boxers. We breed for true boxer type, temperament and health. Occasionally we have both show and pet quality boxers available.

There is nothing cuter than a boxer puppy

That boxer personality and temperament

about us

Judging at the 2017 American Boxer Club national specialty

   Originally from Canada and raised in California, I bought my first boxer with my paper route earnings when I was in the 7th grade. She was almost a

constant companion and I became convinced that the boxer was the only 

breed of dog for me. So after Marie and I were married and had started a family it was time to get a family dog and of course, it would have to be a boxer. We found a puppy from the lines of a wonderful lady named Margaret Deeds

(Barisle boxers). Margaret would

become my mentor. She talked to me about structures and types, about breeding theories and strategies. Marie and I took the path that so many have traveled. From going to that first match and winning that first ribbon to actually competing in a real show.  After moving to Denver we bred a litter that would produce our first  champion, Ch. Barisles Miss Pris. We took on the Barisle name since Margaret was no longer showing and she gave permission for us to carry on the name. Finishing that first champion was a real struggle so we decided it was time to look for a foundation bitch. We feel like we hit it big when Rufus Burleson agreed to take a chance on us. We purchased Marburl’s Scarlet Cord, a daughter of Ch. Marburl’s Rahab of Wesan. She became Ch. Marburl’s Scarlet Cord and also became a “Dam of Merit”. A few years later Margaret began showing again so we changed our name to Denbar boxers, to us, short for “Denver Barisle”.

      Breeding and showing boxers has been a wonderful journey for us, from that first ribbon, that first litter and to our first champion. I have gone from a novice to a professional handler and now an AKC licensed judge over a 40 year span of time. We have finished champions, won awards, won breeds, groups and best in shows but I really believe our greatest and most joyful accomplishments have been in working with, and helping others to achieve some of these same goals.It has been with the hard work and loyalty of these dear friends and other dedicated breeders that there are currently                  2 “Sires of Merit” and 6 “Dams of Merit” that carry either the Barisle or Denbar names.
