Our Planned page has more information on future litters and timing details.   Newest puppy photos can be seen on our Laymani Boxers Facebook Page.

The following puppies, from previous litters, have all been placed with Laymani Families.


Photos of past Laymani Puppies can be found on our Families page.

Laymani puppies are $2000, plus sales tax.  Our price does not vary because of age, sex or markings.

Details of purchasing a Laymani puppy are spelled out in our Standard Practices near the bottom of this page. There you will find information about Laymani Membership, Puppy Pricing, and Advance Reservation details.

We do not ship puppies, though we can occasionally break away for a few hours to meet a Laymani Family part way.  With enough notice, we may even be able to deliver your Laymani puppy to your door.


Payments are normally made in cash.  We will accept your personal check, provided we have received it at least 2 weeks prior to pick-up/delivery.  Otherwise, cash is required.

Checks from approved Laymani Families should be made out to:

Denise Tessum

4882 Tick Ridge Rd.

Vincent, OH  45784


Our puppies are normally placed with AKC Limited registration.  Full registration is possible under certain circumstances at an additional charge.

See our Puppy PreSchool page for more information about the early life experiences of our youngsters.


Don’t forget to view our Laymani Families pages to see photos of our past puppies and their families.



All of our puppies have their tails docked and dewclaws removed at the vet’s.  We prefer to have our veterinarian do that work, along with inoculations, because we trust her expertise and it gives our puppies that extra checkout by a trained professional.  When ready to go home with you, they will have had their first set of shots, been wormed, and have been checked more than once by our vet.  The first set of shots is given at 6 weeks and are absolutely vital to protecting your puppy, so we do not allow puppies to depart until several days after that inoculation.  We do not crop ears and we do not ship, but when schedules permit, we are willing to hand-deliver puppies.  Laymani puppies are raised in our home and introduced to our grandchildren as soon as children can safely handle them.  When you receive your puppy, you will also receive health records, AKC puppy registration papers, pedigree information, a DVD with your puppy’s baby pictures, and a starter bag of puppy food.

By the time our puppies are ready for their new homes, they are started on the way to being housebroken and doing quite well for their age.  They spend most of their time indoors when babies, but as they become more active and the weather allows, the puppies are sent outside in an enclosed area so they can play.

If you are taking one of our puppies to your home, we really want to meet you.  You are always welcome to pick up your new puppy at our home.  We are located about halfway between Marietta and Athens, OH on State Route 550.  Please note that mapping services and GPS may take you down a goat path to the wrong house.  Contact us to verify your directions before you start driving.  Laymani Boxers is approximately 2 hours driving time from Columbus, OH or Charleston, WV – 2.5 hours from Pittsburgh – 3.5 hours from Cleveland and Cincinnati – 5.5 hours from Indianapolis – a fair day’s drive from New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Nashville.  Since we do not ship puppies, personal delivery is available, either to your home or to an in-between meeting place.  There is an additional cost for delivery outside of our local area, but we try to base the charge on our actual expenses to keep it reasonable.

Once you have been approved to bring a Laymani Boxer into your home, send us a $400.00 Membership Fee for access to private Laymani Family and Health discussion groups, invitation to our annual Laymani Boxer Reunion, and 24/7 access to us for health, training, behavior, or emergency questions.  While waiting for your Laymani Puppy, please remember that your existing pups are also included for support as Laymani By Love (LBL).  The date that we receive your Membership Fee establishes your placement on our Advance Reservation primary waiting list.

We also keep a no-cost Courtesy List of approved families.  That list receives no special Laymani services and will be called, in date order, after we have satisfied any Advance Reservations.

When puppies are born, we begin notifying Laymani Families, beginning at the top of the primary list.  Families will often “pass”, because they desire a specific sex, marking, size, or simply because the timing is not quite right for them.  So, even though we may have 6 puppies in a litter, it is not uncommon to call our entire list before they are all placed.  After puppies are placed, we re-number our list, with existing reservations moving further toward the top.  When it is time to pickup your puppy, we credit your Membership Fee against our puppy price.  The remainder of your puppy price, plus any additional charges, must be received before your puppy goes home.  Our Laymani Boxer puppies are $2000 plus sales tax, a price that supports not only a single puppy but an ongoing breeding program.  All Laymani puppies are placed with a puppy contract, detailing expected care of the puppy and our guarantee.  In addition to money and contract, your puppy placement is not complete until you have physically inspected your puppy.  Any unresolved disputes outside of that contract will be arbitrated by a three-person panel, to be selected by Laymani Boxers, in Washington County, Ohio.  Arbitrated decisions are limited to money actually paid to Laymani Boxers.
Even though we attempt to schedule picks for our program in advance, Laymani Boxers reserves the right to make first pick from each litter.

We accept payment by cash, and under certain circumstances, by personal check.  Advance Reservations are normally welcome by check.  All puppy payments by check must be made early enough to allow 2 weeks between receipt and puppy delivery to satisfy our bank.  Checks should be made out to Denise Tessum and mailed to 4882 Tick Ridge Road, Vincent, OH 45784.

If you are not fully committed to becoming a Laymani Family, please do not begin the process.  We plan our acquisition of Boxers, the puppies that we keep for our program, and our breeding schedule around our reservation list.  Should someone drop out, it can disrupt years of planning.

Our puppies are ready to go home approximately 4 months after Momma is bred.  If you are unable to receive your puppy at that time, you will forfeit all rights to that particular puppy and money paid, unless a date is arranged and mutually agreed upon prior to 8 weeks of age.  We will allow a credit in the amount of the money you have paid to be applied toward the purchase of another puppy at a more convenient time.  Refunds are not available.  We do, however, reserve the right to recommend a particular puppy to you based on our experience in matching our puppies’ personalities and temperaments to your family and lifestyle.

On rare occasion, we will determine that a certain puppy placement is not in the best interest of our puppy.  In that case, we reserve the right to return your money.

Any monetary returns will be processed following the next litter of puppies.
