I've been admiring the Boxer for several
years but only in 2000 I got interested
in dog breeding, dogshows and everything
My entrance in the "boxerworld"
came with the request of creating a website
for a portuguese kennel.
My first Boxer came from
that kennel and is called Gwen
dell Conde de Valmont.
After that website I've
made many others for people involved with
When choosing my affix,
to be a very logical choice, since so far
everything had been related to the web.
Soon my keen interest for
boxers was turned into passion, into a strong
will of wanting to learn more and more about
this amazing breed. Wanting to get to know
more and better boxers and...to me the logical
consequence of all this: giving my contribution
to the improvement of the boxer by trying
to breed works of art.
Quoting Dr. Tomaso Bosi,
" Breeding doesn't mean increasing
the breed population but, most of all, to
improve it". I look at this as a big
responsability and have the deepest respect
for those who have been working to improve
the breed along the years
I still have a long way to go and try to
learn a bit more every day, in every conversation
with experienced people, in every moment
I spend with the fabulous creatures that
boxers are. They are a never ending learning
source. They are not only the eternal clowns
that bring us so many moments of joy, they
are, most of all, great friends and if we
are alert to what they "tell us"
we will learn a lot from them.
My breeding goals are simple...I
only wish to breed the type of boxer I like
the most: elegant but sturdy and balanced,
being as close to the standard as possible.
I like stylish heads, with high raise of
skull, well pronounced stop; athletic construction
finding the right balance between elegance
and substance. Studs and broodbitches will
be selected in order to achieve this goal,
boxers that are faithful to the breedstandard,
healthy and balanced.
I enjoy spending time
with my dogs, I love the boxer, the "art
of breeding", handling, even the stress
that comes with showing...the moments right
before entering the ring. As long as I have
fun doing all this, you'll be able to spot
me along the ringside for sure. If one day
I lose interest regarding the show aspect
I may, who knows, step away from that. However
it may turn out, boxers will continue being
a part of my life, no doubt about that.
I need them!
The year 2002 was the beginning
of my dream with the birth of the first
homebred "Cyberbox" litter. It
was also the year "Cyberbox" site
went online (1st version, the site is now
on it's 2nd version). I hope this "adventure"
will keep growing... Let's wait and see
what the future brings.
The first champion from my kennel is Dai de Cyberbox, CH Portugal, and she belong to Paulo Fernandes, D'Anteikan Boxers, who has done an amazing job with Dai. She is also the dam of the multi champion Bat D'Anteikan, which also makes me feel quite proud. Here is a photo of Dai in her show days:
This passion for the breed
has been bringing many people together,
resulting in longlasting friendships and
I hope it will keep doing that in the future.
If one day we bump into
to each other at some show, near the ringside,
don't hesitate to say "hi"!
Thank you for visiting
this site, I hope you like it!
...I'll see you around!
