About us

 from small beginnings

Belire Boxers was established in the UK in 1980 when Clifford and Peter Squires purchased their first Boxer bitch, purely as a pet. Clifford was persuaded to show her when Sheila Crompton a Championship Show judge, stopped them both in the street exclaiming what a wonderful example of a Boxer she was. Toyah, became our first Crufts qualifier (not bad for a so called pet) and we never looked back.

Our first of many, Continental excursions

In 1982, we visited Holland and were taken on a visit to many kennels over there. The Dutch people opened their houses to us and we began the start of many new friendships. We were astounded by the beauty of the bloodlines, especially from the Dommeldal stock where we found our first import. He was Dutch Import (Urco v Dommeldal at Belire) pictured on the right at ten weeks old.

Urco v Dommeldal at Belire mated to Toyha, resulted in our first home bred favourite; Belire Starstrider

The Klostereind Kennels in Holland

Our second import was Dutch Import Mike vt Klostereind at Belire from the famous and oh so friendly Klostereind kennels in Holland

Champion Bandelero

On subsequent visits to Holland, we fell in love with a new Champion, at that time called simply "Bandelero".
          we are now based in Spain, this site shares our UK breeding experience

The terrible twins

The owners of Bandelero were keeping two superb Boxers, but allowed us to purchase them in 1987. Dutch Import Scaramouche At Belire (pictured at 6 months old), and Belgian Import Kate At Belire (pictured at 18 months old), were both sired by International, Dutch, Belgian Champion, Atibox Sieger 88, BANDELERO ZVP IPO-1

Bart

One of our favourite stud dog was our Dutch Import After Delphi Bart With Belire. Bart was a son of the prolific sire, Kamp Plato vd Hazenberg and was chosen by Clifford at just five weeks old on a visit in 1992.

American Boxer visit

In 1989 we visited America and every dog we admired turned out to be the progeny of a certain Champion Turos Dakota of Shar-Rea. Unfortunately, he had already been exported to Japan, but a litter was due by one of his sons, Champion KJ's Box-Sin Rebel of Ruffian. He too was a handsome dog who we had the pleasure to meet. Belire Chairman of the Board, was the first of our line to be sired by Rebels son, American Import Ruffians Jazz Singer at Belire. Chairman is pictured here at five weeks old,. In later life he went to Holland and almost became a Champion there before tragically dying young in a road accident.
