Referrals from some of the wonderful families that have added Mora Topline Boxers to their family!
We are very happy to refer Cindy & Brian Swanson, and Mora Topline Boxers to those seeking to bring a Boxer into their hearts and homes. We have a 5-year old female Boxer named Zoey, who was our first love and converted us instantly to a Boxer family for life. We adore the breed for their intelligence, athletic ability, comical nature, love of children and all people they encounter, and especially for their love of their family “pack”. After Zoey, we added Layla to our family, but unfortunately due to a serious heart condition, we lost her at 11 months old in Spring 2017.
After a few months of heartbreak (and a depressed Zoey), we decided to begin to search again for the right breeder. I searched our surrounding states and didn’t have any luck finding any available puppies. Then I stumbled across Mora Topline Boxers beautiful website and the June 2017 litter with available puppies. Minnesota is very far away, but I just so happened to be traveling through there on business that same week the puppies were ready to go home. I half-jokingly showed a picture of Tucker to my husband and said, “I’m going right through MN next month!” I was sure he’d think I was crazy to want to travel on a plane with a puppy, but he surprised me and said, “let’s go get him!”. It was fate! I reached out to Cindy & Brian and they responded right away. They answered all my questions and clearly cared deeply about their Boxers and what kind of homes the puppies would be going to. We made all the arrangements and during my layover, I met up with my husband and we went to meet Tucker. It was love at first sight, and Cindy & Brian were wonderful. We saw Tucker’s parents and left with a nice care package.
Tucker was an angel on my lap on the plane all the way to his new home in New York State. Needless to say, our Zoey was thrilled with her new puppy and they became fast friends. Tucker is so smart, loving, fun and we just adore him. He is the perfect addition to our family. We could not be happier with our choice and would certainly travel again for another Mora Topline Boxer.

It is my pleasure to write this letter of reference for Cindy and Brian Swanson of Mora TopLine Boxers. Prior to contacting Cindy I did an extensive amount of research on boxer breeders all over the state of Minnesota and other surrounding states looking to find a reputable breeder who's integrity, knowledge and professionalism I could trust regardless if it entailed traveling some distance to find our newest companion. After many hours of research we came across Mora TopLine boxers website and was extremely impressed with the extensive amount of time she puts into this breed and the guidelines she carries as a breeder. I instantly knew we had found the right breeder for us. They raise their boxers as we would with an extensive amount of love and respect. Her expectations and guidelines truly show how important it is to her to make sure ALL her puppies go to a wonderful and loving home and it also shows how she is one of the rare breeders who deep down truly cares about her puppies after they leave her care. Cindy was wonderful keeping us connected to our puppy's progress with pictures and up to date information throughout the weeks until we were able to pick up our little guy. It was a true joy being able to see pictures of his progress along with his litter mates as they were growing up! Around 8 weeks we were finally able to bring our little guy home and so far he has been so much joy for our family! He is consistently doing silly things to make us all laugh and he is just a lover...we love him very much!
In my experience, Cindy has demonstrated a strong amount of kindness, integrity and her tremendous love for her boxers and the breed shows how committed she truly is! I would strongly recommend Mora TopLine Boxers to anyone that is looking to add a boxer to their family. Cindy is an amazing and wonderful person / breeder and it definitely shows in the quality of all her boxers pedigrees.
Thank you so much Cindy and Brian for giving us this opportunity to provide Henry with a life long home where he will be provided with an abundant amount of love! We look forward to keeping in touch with you as Henry continues to grow!

It is with great pleasure, I highly recommend Mora Topline Boxer for the next love in your life! It is truly obvious Brian and Cindy Swanson love and care for each and every boxer in their home. It is hard to put into words the love they have shared with us. We met with Cindy and Brian to view a new litter (11 Puppies) Rosie and Bogart had recently had. Right off the bat, I was amazed by the utter silence and cleanliness of their home, knowing there was nearly 20 boxers in the house (adults and puppies combined). The gentleness, care and love shown to all their boxers is evident immediately. Cindy first introduced us to the parents and grandparents on site, and then the puppies. I immediately had tears running down my eyes. Truly love at first site when she brought out Vincent. (We have been without boxers in our lives for over 11 years, and I still was feeling unsure if I was “replacing” them).
Cindy was fantastic on updating us every week with new pictures and answered all my emails. Knowing my new love is being cared for with such love and kindness really made all the difference! The day finally came to pick up Vincent. The transition was so smooth. Cindy and Brian went over any questions we had. I thanked them over and over again, what great joy and blessing they are sharing with us.
The transition to our home was incredibly easy. Vincent just fit right in from the very beginning. He is truly been so sweet, mild- mannered and easy to train. The first couple days he knew he had to sit for a treat. He was completely outdoor potty-trained by week two. Running to the door and just waiting for us to come. So full of fun and energy and so wanting to snuggle at any moment. He truly is the sweetest boy. Even with it being summer and around the 4th of July, he doesn’t get jumpy and frightened with thunder and fireworks. He acknowledges the sound, watches for our reaction, and puts his head back down. When grooming time comes, he squirms for a moment because he doesn’t like to get his paws wet, then, just lets us bathe him and dry him off. When it comes to his nails needing clipping, he just lets us do it. Quite amazing for the fact that he isn’t even three months old yet and the love he has given us and he gets in return is abundant!

We were walking our boxer one day and came across the most beautiful little brindle pup. She was so stunning. The owners mentioned they got her from Mora MN, and so my research began. We were hoping to add another boxer to our family, but we're waiting for the right one and the right time. Cindy at Mora Topline Boxers was awesome. Prompt and informative responses to my emails, and seemed very genuine. The process they go through when placing their puppies show that they really care about the well being and future lives of these puppies. They are no ordinary breeder. They take extra time to make sure the new owners are happy but most importantly their dogs are happy and going to a great home. Kaya has been a great addition!! We get comments all the time on how beautiful she is. I would highly recommend Mora Topline Boxers! You will not be disappointed!
If you are looking to add a boxer to your family, look no further you have found your breeder! You will not be disappointed, as Brian and Cindy (Mora TopLine Boxers) are fantastic! Before I contacted them, I had done a ton of research over a couple of years. A friend had referred Brian and Cindy so they were at the top of the list, but I still wanted to do my homework. They by far exceeded any expectations I had for a breeder. Cindy was especially fantastic to work with! I had a lot of questions before I even met my new puppy and since then I have reached out to her many times to ask questions, get suggestions and so forth. She always responded in a timely manner and provided her recommendations and past experiences. This has been so valuable to me, as this is my first boxer. Thank you so much Cindy and I look forward to connecting with you in the future for a playmate for Dallas
Here is a picture of our wonderful puppy Dallas! We couldn't be happier with her! She is a fantastic puppy, learns fast, a little stubborn, and the best snuggler there is . She thoroughly enjoys playing fetch with her ball, playing with other puppies/dogs and getting lots of love and attention from anyone who will give it to her. Again, we couldn't be happier to have her part of our family!
Thanks Brian and Cindy!

We just added our second Mora TopLine boxer to our family. We got Max in November 2014 and he has been such a joy that we vowed we would never get a boxer anywhere other than Mora. Duke our newest Mora boxer has reinforced that thought. He has been home with us for 2 weeks and is a pure joy. He fit right in with Max and Stella from the moment he came home and they adore him. The temperament and intelligence of these dog's is nothing short of amazing. We constantly get compliments on Max saying he is one of the most beautiful boxers they've ever seen. Max is also the absolute sweetest baby my wife and I have ever had and we've had some sweet babies over the years. Duke after only 2 weeks has shown to have the same traits. We would recommend anyone looking for the perfect boxer baby to stop their search at Mora... It doesn't get any better than a Mora TopLine Boxer.
My boxer puppy Solomon is almost six months old now and has been a terrific addition to my family! He was the last of his litter to be picked which gave me just a little hesitation, but I think he was just waiting for me to come get him. He's very well tempered, loves to play, and was very easy to house and crate train. I took him with us to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival a few weeks ago and he had dozens of people "fawning" over him throughout the day and was very easy going in the crowd.
Manitou is a wonderful dog-- very sweet, loyal, playful, good-tempered, good on a leash, and without a mean bone in his body. He gets along well with the cat, and thinks every dog is a new friend. Like most boxers, he's of course very high-spirited and always wants to play, but he's well-behaved and calm with a good walk or 2 and some play. He's a joy to have around.
We have been boxer lovers and owners for over ten years. When it was time to look for a puppy we did extensive research into breeders. When we visited Mora Topline Boxers we knew we had finally found the right place to get our next little love! Everything at Cindy and Brian's home was immaculately clean and the dogs were so well taken care of. The love and care the Swanson's put into their dogs is amazing and every step of the process was seamless for us!
On July 6th, 2014 we had to put down our sweet, loving 4 year old boxer, Mazi. He had started having seizures 6 months before than and it was believed he had a brain tumor. This was only 5 short days after we lost my husband's father to a 2 year battle with terminal cancer. We were beyond devastated by our world seeming to crumble around us. As we have no kids of our own yet, Mazi was our baby and we loved him dearly. We had a huge hole in our hearts and each day was a struggle to get through.
After about a month we started talking about how incredibly quiet it was without our Mazi, how much we dearly missed him and having a boxer in the house. The breeder we had got him from was no longer breeding boxers so we started our hunt to find a great one. We searched the internet over for weeks looking for a good breeder. Once I came across Mora's Topline Boxers and talked with Cindy, I knew we had found the one! When we went out for the interview, they listened to our story and answered all of our many questions that we had. Cindy was very sweet and kind to us and we were blown away by what a beautiful home they had for all the dogs.
We picked up our sweet Tego the end of September. It was so fun to be able to get weekly photos of them to see how they were growing! The moment we saw him, we were in love! He is such a VERY good boy, so smart, and a wonderful temperment!! He has brought so much love and happiness back into our lives and we are so grateful to have him!! Our friends also got a boxer from them a week later and absolutely adore him!! We would highly recommend Mora Topline Boxers to anyone looking for a wonderful boxer!!! Thank you!!!
There is no better breed than a Boxer. Once a Boxer enters your life, you are hooked. We lost our wonderful Boxer, Champ (9.5 years), to cancer in November, and within two weeks welcomed Mora TopLine Boxers' Ricky (18 weeks old) into our lives. We have since renamed him Winston, and are madly in love!
Working with Brian and Cindy to obtain our new family member was very professional, caring, and so rewarding. Their contract and puppy health records were very thorough and complete, and our puppy was the picture of health. We would highly recommend them as compassionate breeders that take their job very seriously and clearly have their dogs' best interests in mind. You won't be disappointed.

Shortly after our first Boxer (flashy brindle female named Marley) passed away due to a brain tumor we began researching boxer breeders.
We knew we wanted another boxer, but our first boxers breeder was no longer breeding. As a result, we started some due diligence on researching where our next boxer would come from.
We are dog lovers and we treat our dogs like children so finding the right breeder was critical to us.
Our goal was to find a breeder that cares as much or more about the dogs as we do PLUS breed quality dogs with good lines and pedigree.
We came across many breeders who had good pedigrees, but it took some time to find a breeder that treats their animals like family, just like we do.
In fact, we don't leave home without out our dog, our dog sleep in our bed at night, she has standing nail appointments, we strive to provide the best healthcare vet science allows,
we focus on providing her a healthy life, we have a dog walker every day, we literally treat them like most people treat their children!!
Frankly, we thought that it would be impossible to find a breeder that cares as much about their dogs health, well being, disposition and family involvement as we do until we came across Mora Topline Boxers.
After spending hours researching on the internet and poring over sites, speaking to several breeders and vets we encountered the Mora Topline Boxers website.
I am sure your reaction to the site itself was similar to ours. I thought,Wow these people put a lot of time and effort into their dogs and who their dogs go to.
Again, this element of finding a breeder was as important as the dogs pedigree and we feel lucky we found Mora Topline Boxers because they have both of these quality elements.
My husband spent over an hour filling out the puppy questionnaire. Again, another sign that Mora Topline boxers truly cares about where their animals go.
We were then invited to meet the liter, the stud dog and the bitch (I call her the mom) Cindy and her husband. We drove up on a rainy Saturday in May 2011 not fully expecting but hoping
to get a puppy in the litter they called Eva-she was a beautiful fawn female, cute as a button! After spending a good amount of time talking about the dogs, their pedigree and reviewing Cindy's
and our obligations to the animal we knew we met our match, finally a breeder who raises quality boxers, with excellent lines and the bonus of loving the animal as a family member.
That day we began a new journey, one that included a new family member 9 week old Eva we remained Lacey who we call Lu Lu. As you can see from the photo she is beautiful as they come,
but being a puppy she is far from perfect. She requires dedication to exercise and training and in exchange she gives us laughs (some disappointments like chewing up multiple pairs of my shoes)and
most importantly unconditional love. We have no regrets in selecting a breeder who cares as much about breeding quality show and family dogs as they do the genes and lines of the dog itself after all,
We are a family of 4 including an eight year old boy and a six year old girl. Our dog has an amazing disposition, is well rounded and extremely playful, lovable and approachable.
She loves other dogs and loves to be outside playing in the yard and going for runs.
We are so impressed with Mora Topline Boxers and would strongly recommend them to others!!
I truly do thank you for giving us the opportunity to provide Lacey with a quality home, we are forever grateful-we love her so much!

The 2014 Holiday Season finds our home and hearts filled with love. Every day we consider ourselves so blessed to have our Kona as part of our family. Without finding Cindy’s Mora Topline Boxers we would still have a void in our hearts from losing our 6 year old rescue Boxer to cancer in April 2014.
Once we went for our interview and saw the genuine love and care she puts into her breeding program we knew this was the right breeder. Listening to Cindy speak about her boxers, watch her lovingly hold her little puppies, the weekly photos she posted for us to watch Kona grow all added to an exceptional experience with Mora Topline Boxers.
Kona is such a joy to have in our lives. She is everything a boxer should be. She has a beautiful temperament, lives every day to the fullest, watches us as if to say, “what can I do for you?” and yet can be a complete clown in a moment’s notice. She has bonded wonderfully with our 10 year old Retriever mix and can’t wait to meet new people and experience new adventures. In the early evening, she watches out our front door side window waiting for Dave to come home from work as that is when the FUN really begins!
Kona flew through Puppy Einstein (Kindergarten) and loved exposure to all the different agility equipment. She has brought happy tears to the eyes of the elderly at her first Therapy visits and is currently in Real Life Rover class on Tuesday evenings. I honestly believe the sky is the limit for Kona!
Thank you Cindy and Brain for your dedication and love you put into the breed and your program.

April 6th I lost my boxer to cardiomyopathy. He would have turned 9, two weeks after he passed. I had lost my best friend. After two weeks of his passing I noticed our other boxer was losing weight, even though her eating habits hadn't changed. I frantically took her to the Vet to run every test possible. I wasn't about to lose my other boxer. We found out she was suffering from depression. She walked around the house looking for him, crying. She had never been without Cody, the boxer we had just lost. It was then, that I realized we needed to get her a companion. I started with the AKC website, as I wanted to be sure I was going through a reputable breeder, not a puppy mil. I found 3 boxer breeders within 8 hours of us, and looked into their websites. Only one caught my attention. Mora Top Line Boxers. There were no kennels, no dogs on tie-outs and most importantly, no unhealthy dogs. The puppy questionnaire was long, and asked very detailed questions, which gave me a good feeling. They weren't "selling" puppies, they were looking for perfect homes. When we got the call that we passed the questionnaire, and were invited for an interview I was ecstatic. We booked a hotel close that night, as it was a 6 hour drive. I was so nervous during the interview, but the butterflies in my stomach told me I was doing the right thing. We weren't replacing the dog we had lost, we were adding to our family. During the interview I talked about Cody, the boxer we had just lost, and the tears came. I felt like I had known Brian and Cindy forever the way they reacted. So kind and understanding. After the interview we were shown around. The place was immaculate. The dogs have a huge yard to run and play in, a beautiful river and the most caring (human) parents I've ever met. When we left to head home I immediately started a countdown to the day we could pick up our puppy. I probably drove Cindy nuts requesting pictures of him growing. We picked him up on a Saturday morning. I could tell it was hard for Brian and Cindy to let go of their puppy. It was clear they were giving up a child of their own. We've now gotten to know Dakota's personality. He's the perfect puppy. Healthy, playful and just a bit of a stinker! Our other boxer has taken him in and has since put her weight back on. The two eat together, play together and even sleep together. I couldn't be more happy about the puppy I brought home. He completes our family.
I can't begin to explain how much we love Dakota. He recently turned 3 and is an absolute goofball. He's very verbal and it so funny. He's the best dog I've ever owned!

Lilly has been a great addition to our family. She is so lovable and sweet and has a wonderful temperament. She gets along with our other dog and loves being around people.
My husband and I have been very pleased with Mora Topline Boxers. We would highly recommend them to anyone.
The Barry Family
I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Brian and Cindy Swanson! Getting our beloved puppy, Tyson, was a great experience from the start.
Me and my girlfriend spent months researching the Internet for Pure bred Boxer breeders within Minnesota and Wisconsin, and which initially drew me to Mora Topline Boxers was the incredible amount of
Love and professionalism in their website. Cindy was very great to communicate with through the entire process. She had us come up and meet her and all of her gorgeous boxers at her home.
Her love for the breed made me feel 100% confident in buying a puppy from her. Our dog Rex is absolutely amazing in every way.
He really thinks he is a lap dog and snuggles with us every single night, he has an incredible temperament and personality, makes us laugh every single day.
We are stopped literally every time we leave the house with him because of his beauty. We consider Rex our child and do everything with him, we are so happy to have met Cindy and Mora Topline Boxers!
Once he is fully trained in a couple of years, we will be getting back in touch with Cindy, so we can hopefully pick out another beautiful Boxer from her!!
Andrew and Amber
My husband and I spent about 6 months researching different breeders for a boxer as a companion, we even contacted a few of them.
Out of the many breeders we spoke with we felt the most confident with Mora's Topline. We contacted Cindy and she responded right away.
She was honest, upfront, and knowledgeable about everything, so we decided to meet with her and her dogs.
The dogs were cared for inside her home, and had a huge outside area to run around in, we could tell right away that the puppies were used to being handled and got a lot of attention.
The disposition of the puppies and adult dog (Vincent) that we met were great. We have 2 young children and the temperament of her dogs was very important to us.
Although everything was done very professionally, including contracts and paperwork we could tell that she bred boxers for the love of it.
We could not have been happier with our puppy, he is 5 months right now and is a smart, energetic, healthy, well bred dog."
The Lund Family
My -boyfriend and I first started looking to bring a boxer into our life in March 2011.
I was relentless in searching the web looking up various breeders and was beyond excited when I thought I found a reputable breeder.
We sent in a deposit and were supposed to receive a dog out of her next litter. After two litters failed to produce any puppies, we were devastated and began looking into other breeders.
This is when I came across Mora TopLine Boxers. From the beginning, Cindy was extremely accommodating.
My boyfriend and I were able to come and visit the puppies and pick out the newest addition to our family.
The puppies were extremely well cared for and were raised in the home. Cindy also does not ship her puppies because she wants to meet all of her puppies future families.
I cannot tell you how much I respect this, as you can tell making a profit is not her goal, but rather placing her pups into loving families.
Cindy is extremely knowledgeable and I would highly recommend TopLine Boxers.
In January 2016 Meghan and Jake Also added Winston to their family
