About Lennon . . .
Lennon is a happy go lucky fellow who will do anything for Natasja. Like most boxer boys, he's big and sweet and goofy and ready for whatever Natasja wants him to do whether it is going to classes to learn to be a show dog or going to work with her for the day. We hear it from a reliable source that these two are inseparable! Lennon is a litter mate to Declan, Rooney, Abby, and Rocky who have all been showing in Canada. Lennon is the 7th champion for his dam.

Lennon's first litter was born on 11 April 2010, consisting of one male and six females (four brindles and three fawns). He was bred to Ch CanHar's Canadian Klassic, a fully-health tested, black-faced fawn bred and owned by Tammy Harris-Coates of AuTam Boxers.

Lennon’s show career . . .
Lennon has gone to conformation classes with Natasja, where she has worked very hard to train Lennon so that she can show him. Together, they have done very well and we are very proud of them and what they have accomplished as a team.
