Welcome to Alcomar Boxers & Boston Terriers




Alcomar Boxers is a small hobby kennel, breeding quality show and pet boxers, located in the small village of Coaltown of Balgonie on the East coast, in the Kingdom of Fife, Scotland.

Alistair and I have been involved in the dog world for most of our lives, Ali's father bred Chow Chows and Bullmastiffs and I was involved with German Shepherds.

When we married in 1971 we decided to show Chows and did so until the children came along, when dog showing took a back seat. When the girls started school I wanted to get back into the show scene, which I did on a small scale. In the late 1970's I was a founder member of Glenrothes Ringcraft Society and was the Secretary for more years than I care to remember, it was while running these training classes that my admiration for this marvellous breed began.

I was taken with the clean lines and happy nature and that wonderful Boxer expression. We waited a few years then in the 1980's we lost our last Chow Chow we thought the time was right for a Boxer, we did our research and decided we liked the look of the Winuwuk dogs and started our time in Boxers with a little red and white bitch called Winuwuk Red Ribbons, she was by Winuwuk Red Leader x Sontana Red Dawn.

Then the opportunity came along to buy Walkon Puzzle for Socotra, she was by Ch Tyegarth Blue Kiwi out of Socotra's Royal Toast to Walkon and she became our foundation bitch, she taught us a lot about Boxers and was a very special lady, she would show the youngsters how to behave and could be trusted with anything, well, almost everything, except (sausages) one day I left sausages out on the worktop still in their butchers wrapping, I went out to put a few things away, came back in and there she was sitting with that "I didn't do it look" and the sausages, the whole 1lb gone, in what was at most two minutes - the giveaway - the small piece of butchers wrapping sticking out the corner of her mouth.

Puzzle was heavily in whelp at the time so we put it down to the (munchies) I couldn't help but smile, it's one of my fondest memories of her. She was with us for twelve all too short years and I still miss her. I often think about her when I'm at the top of the garden where she lays beside her son Toby, (Alcomar's the Puzzler) another character just like his mum, who is sadly missed. Many Boxer loves have come and sadly gone over the past years but each one holds a very special place in our hearts.

This brings us up to the 1990's when we got our lovely "Bronte" she too is a very special lady and is laying at my feet as I write this, she went on to become Ch. Seacrest in the Wings at Alcomar J.W. 6 CCs 6 Res CCs and our first green card winner. Winner of Best in Show at Championship level, Scottish Top Dog 1999.


Sadly we lost our lovely "Bronte" on 5th July 2006. The last kindness we could do for her was to let her go;
she went to sleep in our arms at home on her favourite blanket, she is greatly missed by all of us at Alcomar.

One of her daughters lives with Mandy and Richard Laidlaw Alcomar's Oak Smoked at Roamaro (Libby) who is now a Champion with 5 C.C.s and 6 Res C.C.s.

This gives Alcomar the honour of being Top Scottish Breeder 2006.

Another of her daughters Alcomar's Designer Label at Glenauld J.W. (Dina) lives with Janice, Lynn and Suzanne Mair.

At home we have two of her progeny Boycie & Kimmy, Alcomar's Wisp of Smoke "Boycie" and Alcomar's Wingspiel "Kimmy" both winning at championship level.

At the beginning of 2005 Ali took over showing Boycie due to my ill health, to say he has never before gone into the show ring (always very much involved in the breeding and rearing of puppies and the daily routine of the dogs lives) he is doing remarkably well, his latest critique gained at City of Birmingham Ch Show Judge Pat Banks is on Boycie's page, I am very proud of him and "Boycie" has turned into very much his "Daddies Boy", every evening spent cuddled up on Ali's knee.

I am currently on the Boxer Breed Council A2 judging list after completing my Breed Open show required numbers.
My first Breed Show judging appointment was South Wales Boxer Club Open Show, my Best in Show was Sliepnir's Olaf the Stout, reserve Best in Show was his sister Sliepnir's Viking Goddess, both of whom went on to become Champions. My Best Puppy in Show was Susancar Anita Outfit.

My second Breed show was The Mancunian Boxer Club Open show, with a fabulous entry of 122 my Best in Show was Berwynfa Bullet Proof JW. who also became a Champion, my Reserve Best in Show was the bitch Glenauld Trinity, with Best Puppy in Show going to Glenauld Tom Ford.

My third Breed Show was the British Boxer Club Open Show, again a super entry of 120, here my Best in Show was Maranseen Rave Review, Reserve Best in Show going to the dog Verileas Dancing Deano to Jimbren, also later to become a Champion, Best Puppy in Show Norwilbeck Designed in Time.

I am delighted to say that my first Championship appointment, awarding C.C.'s in Bitches, is the Merseyside Boxer Club Championship show in 2010.

We have two new hopefuls at home waiting to start their show careers, a golden brindle dog puppy namely, Alcomar's Dapper Dan (Danny) he's out of Alcomar's Wingspiel x Ch Designer Game at Glenauld JW, and a dark brindle and white bitch Glenauld Kiss in the Mist at Alcomar (Missy) out of Alcomar's Designer Label at Glenauld J.W. x Ch.Winuwuk Lust in the Dust, both are Bronte grandchildren, we will keep you informed through the news page as to how they get on.

All our Boxers are raised in our home as members of our family; we only breed a litter when we want a puppy to show. Our puppies are socialised and vet checked before they go to their new homes.

I will finish here for the time being, please visit often as the site will continue to grow and change as time allows.

Bye for now
