Diamond von der Waldnieler Heide

Diamond was born in August 2018. Her mother is Amy von der Waldnieler Heide, her Father Nabucco von den Busch. Diamond is brindle with white, and we have great expectations as to her future – both as regards shows, working and breeding.

amber

BoxUnix Amber

BH, AD, ZTP

Amber was born in 2014 and her mother is our own Carmen. We wanted to keep a puppy from Carmen's last litter, our A-litter, and after two red boxers we wanted a brindle one. We were very lucky to find that the only female in the litter was also the only brindle puppy.

Unfortunately, we have not succeeded in getting puppies from her, although she was expecting twice. We have therefore decided that we will not try again, but of course Amber stays with us as a much beloved member of our family.

carmen

Carmen vom Brömchen

AK, BH, IPO1, IPO2, tracking test 1 and 2

Carmen was born in 2008. Her parents are Cobra von Cujo and Darwin vom Hause Livrée. Carmen has participated in many breed shows and is practically always placed among the best as a top-4 dog. However, we haven't participated in many shows in the last couple of years – both because she had her first litter around Christmas 2010 and because our focus has shifted from the breed shows to the working dog area and it is difficult to find time for everything.

Carmen is an incredible eager dog and therefore we are prioritising the IPO (VPG) training and she loves it! In 2015 she passed the IPO 2 in Glücksburg, and she also passed her first tracking test (FH1). Although Carmen will be 8 years old in 2016, it is still wonderful to work with her, and we are both enjoying our many training hours.

In every way, Carmen is a wonderful dog and naturally she is also the mother of our A-litter. She is now too old for more litters, but our hopes and plans were that her daughter Amber should continue our line of breeding. Unfortunately that will not be so, as Amber has hip dysplasia (D). So our B-litter must wait.

Health results

A/P stenosis

At age 1 Carmen's heart has been graded 0 meaning she is free from both aortic and pulmonary valve stenosis. Her aortic valve diameter is 1.6 cm. The examination was done by Jørgen Koch at the Royal Veterinary College - LIFE.

HD/ED

When Carmen was 1½ years old the time had come to have her hips and joints examined. Carmen's hips received grade B with an HG index of 104.00 and her joints received grade 0 meaning she's completely free from any changes.

Spondylosis

2 years old Carmed was examined for signs of spondylosis and we were very happy to learn that she recived grade 0.

jamie

Spirgårdens Jamie

AK, BH, VPG1 (IPO 1), VPG2 (IPO 2)

Our Jamie was born in 2004 to Bukelas Emma and Gaio von Monsalvat. He died in 2014, almost 10 years old. Jamie participated in many breed shows and aquired many excellent results and a rather large amount of trophies. He also proved his abilities at the training grounds, and in 2011, he passed his VPG2 (IPO2).

Jamie was the father of our first litter, the S-litter.

Health results

A/P stenosis

The first time around, as a young dog, Jamie was diagnosed with grade 1, which is also called the transition grade meaning he is clear. When he was 5 years old we let Jamie enter into a research programme at the Veterinay College and his heart was scanned once more. Surprisingly Jamie appears to have "outgrown" his initial diagnosis - the doppler echocardiography showed us that Jamie is now completely clear with a grade 0.

HD/ED

Jamie has grade A hips in both sides and an HD index of 112.00; in Denmark a boxer may be used for breeding with A, B or C grade hips. His joints were free from changes and he received a grade 0.

Spondylosis

At 18 months Jamie received grade 0. At 4½ we had him examined again and this time he received grade 1. This development is considered completely normal and we are very satisfied with the result.

bonnie

Bonnie (Gloa von Toppidan)

Bonnie was born in 1997 as Gloa to Bolmosens Aranya and Boss von Toppidan. At this time the children were old enough for us to be able to once again join other boxer enthusiasts at the training grounds. Unfortunately, when Bonnie was eight months old we learned that she was suffering from various heart diseases. As a consequence we had to scale down her work load - Bonnie still enjoyed every aspect of her training but she could no longer participate in defence work.

But regardless of her diminished abilities as a working dog she was a lovely dog and we enjoyed her very much. She was in continuous treatment by Jørgen Koch at LIFE (then the Royal Veterinary College) in Copenhagen. We regularly went on the long drive to Copenhagen from Haderslev to ensure that her level of medication was correct.

Bonnie lived to be almost seven years old before her heart had had enough, and we had to say goodbye to a wonderful dog.

max

Max (Hemmings Iko)

Max was born in 1985 and died in 1997. His parents were Darling vom Schloss Münchhausen og Uhtz von Bereler Ries. We did intend to work with Max, as Erik had done with Faruk, but a combination of dull-time jobs and little children made it impossible to find the necessary time for it. Instead we worked with Max at home with the result that he became very obedient; he, too was a quick learner.

He was easy going with our children and their playmates, and was always watching our youngest daughter when she was sleeping in her pram in our garden – and when she grew older, she invented many games in which Max was an important participant, and he didn’t mind sharing his basket with her.

faruk

Fraukærs Faruk

BHP1 (DK champion 1981)

Faruk was Erik’s first boxer. Faruks parents were Fraukærs Athene and Jago von Bereler Ries. With Faruk Erik got his first taste of the joy of working with a dog. Many hours were invested at the training grounds and they paid off when Erik, and Faruk of course, became BHP1 (IPO1) Danish Champions in 1981. They also won a couple of Club Championships, and together they spent many happy hours at the training grounds.

chris

Chris

Chris was my first boxer. Born in 1973 he lived to be 11 years old. We started proper obedience training when he was six years old and at seven years old he passed the BLP1 - his first, and only, obedience test. Chris was a great dog, very loving and affectionate, and he had a long and wonderful life with us.
