The Steamin' litter

Whelped on the very hot August 10th morning, 2002...

Sired by CH Minstrel's Mannheim Steamroller, "Jackson"

Owned by: Katherine Nevius


and out of RedDawn's Dun Roamin', "Roam"....

 Owned by & resides with: Rebecca A. West (J. Dara's Boxers) 

Co -Owned by: Dawn M. Ward (RedDawn Boxers)


Out of their union came a litter that may be small in number, but made up for that in looks and attitude!

ABC Futurity Nominated Flashy Brindle Girl:

J. Dara's Scintillation, "Suki"

Shown below being evaluated by Dr. Ted, 

but her new owner, Bob Blumberg, 

prefers that she be shown with natural ears.

After this page was originally created, Suki was diagnosed in Renal Failure, and has returned home to live with us at J. Dara's for whatever time she has remaining. We are trying to learn as much about canine kidney disease as is possible to hopefully lengthen the time we have with Suki, as well as to prevent it in future litters. Please visit Suki's page for more of her story; and review the  information and links to what we have learned so far.

Breeders Note:

 The temperament of the pups in this litter seem to be carbon copies of their parents! Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting either Jackson or Roamin' always fall in love with their easy going ways with both people and other boxers. I borrowed the following quote from Dawn's webpage as it describes the true boxer character.....

"The character of the Boxer is of the greatest importance and demands the most careful attention. He is renowned from olden times for his great love and faithfulness to his master and household, his alertness and fearless courage as a defender and protector. The Boxer is docile but distrustful of strangers. He is bright and friendly in play but brave and determined when aroused. His intelligence and willing tractability, his modesty and cleanliness make him a highly desirable family dog and cheerful companion. He is the soul of honesty and loyalty. He is never false or treacherous even in his old age."
