David and I married in December of 1982.  We have three daughters who are 16, 15, and 9 years of age.  My family lives on 150 acres of rolling hills in rural northern Alabama.  I am a full time poultry farmer with six (6) 400 ft houses.  David works at a Boeing Rocket plant in Decatur. The beauty of these backwoods, where we live, inspired me with the name 'Backwoods Boxers'.

We have had boxers all of our married life.  It was after I went to work for a local vet that I decided I wanted to do more with them.  I purchased a plain fawn bitch, then after attending a local dog show, I decided that she didn't quiet measure up.

I contacted  Dana Leegran Riott, of IN, in search of nice male and she was more than helpful.  I purchased Reggie, who was sired by Ch Pineflat's Kris Kringle out of Can Ch Danall's Give Em Hell.  Reggie was correct in every way!  Although he was never a show dog due to a broken leg as a puppy, he did give me a sound foundation.  Reggie passed away from a freak accident this spring.  He is truly missed.

I purchased two other boxers for show that didn't turn out which were placed in pet homes.  Soon afterwards, I was introduced to Ken Kyzer of High River Boxers.  Ken has been my mentor and was nice enough to let me purchase High River's Taylor Made of Backwoods, SOM.  Taylor has it all!  He is a flashy dark brindle with beautiful expression and great topline.

 Yesterday is History,
Tomorrow is a Mystery,
Today is the Present
and that is why we call it a 'Gift'!
Do unto others
as you would have them do unto you.
