Brookside Puppies


Our Story

Welcome to Brookside Puppies! We are Marcus & Tillie Gingerich. We have also been blessed with two sons. We live on a three-acre property in rural Illinois where it's very peaceful and we have plenty of room for our pets to run and exercise.

We got married five years ago and built a home here on our property. Our love for boxers got us started raising a few litters. Soon we decided we would also raise another breed or two. We are working to have all our dogs OFA certified because health and strong genetics is very important to us. All our puppies go to their forever homes with vaccinations and dewormer up to date. Arcola Animal Healthcare Center approves all our puppies with a clean bill of health before they can be adopted.

Our families biggest highlight is meeting new friends and seeing them bond their new puppy.

We wish you many blessing!

PLEASE DO NOT OVER FEED YOUR DOG! Follow manufacture directions. Over feeding dogs is the greatest cause of cancer and joint problems in dogs. Keep them physically fit with top quality food in the correct quantity and plenty of exercise. Other than an occasional treat of scrambled eggs, some cheeses including cottage cheese we highly discourage human food given to dogs. Dog feed with corn, soy, or wheat products is also discouraged and not recommended. Cooked beef bones from your local butcher can be a healthy treat also. No chicken or turkey bones recommended!
