About Sawyer . . .
Sawyer is the beginning of a new era at Zaracon Boxers. She is the restart of our breeding program and has been tested for hips, heart (sub-aortic stenosis and cardiomyopathy), thyroid and eyes. Sawyer is confident, playful and outgoing. She loves to relax on Dave's lap when he sits in his recliner to watch television. The two of them have started obedience training and will compete once Dave thinks Sawyer won't embarrass him. Sawyer had her first litter in October 2002 and her second litter in July 2004. Sawyer had her third and final litter in August 2006. In May 2007, she became a Dam of Merit in just two litters (with her first litter consisting of only two puppies), when Secret finished her championship. Sawyer has nine Canadian champions to her credit, with two others pointed, as well as one with a CD (companion dog) title and another with an agility title. In June 2008, at the Boxer Club of Canada Regional in Oshawa, Ontario, Sawyer was awarded The Glencotta Trophy for being the top producing dam belonging to a Boxer Club of Canada member.

Sawyer’s show career . . .
Sawyer began her showing at a sanction match where she won best of breed, group first, best puppy in match and best in match. Although Dave started showing Sawyer, his knees gave out and was not able to continue. Inspite of this setback, Sawyer became a Canadian champion in only six days of showing. We are totally thrilled with her and all that she has accomplished in such limited showing.

  • In May 2001, Sawyer won winner's bitch under judge, Tom Alexander, and then won winner's bitch and best of opposite over a Special under judge, Maurice Tougas.
  • In July 2001, Sawyer won best of breed, puppy in group, a Group 3rd placement and Best Puppy in Show under judge, Barbara Knoll and then won best of breed and puppy in group under judge, Archie Warnock. This completed her Canadian championship.
  • In August 2001, Sawyer won best of breed, puppy in group and a Group 3rd placement under judge, Bob-John Ellieff.
  • In May 2003, Sawyer won best of breed and a Group 4th placement under judge, Terry Carter, and then won best of breed and a Group First under breeder judge, Walter Pinsker.
  • In July 2003, Sawyer won four best of breeds and a best of opposite.
  • On 08 June 2008, at the Boxer Club of Canada Regional in Oshawa, Ontario, Sawyer obtained a second place finish in the Veterans bitch class at the Sweepstakes, judged by Jim McGriskan, and a second place finish in the Veterans bitch class at the Specialty, judged by John Kiel. The bitch who took first place was the Specialty breed winner. Sawyer was shown in the Sweepstakes and the Specialy by her breeder, Mary Curl. It was at this show that Sawyer received her Dam of Merit plaque for 2007, as well as the award for being the Boxer Club of Canada's Top Boxer Dam in 2007. As well, her son Declan, from her 2006 litter, received the award for Top Boxer Puppy in 2007.
  • On 09 Aug 2008, at the Manitoba Boxer Club Specialty in St. Norbert, Manitoba, Sawyer did really well under Judge Sheila Verhulst: Sawyer received an Award of Merit from the Veteran Bitch class and she won the Brood Bitch class (out of four entries) with her sons Rocky and Declan.
