About our Puppies > Our 2008 Litter (Week Five)
Zaracon Boxers, reg'd is pleased to introduce our litter between Secret and Chevy. Both are health tested for eyes, hips, thyroid, and heart (sub-aortic stenosis and cardiomyopathy). Secret comes from a litter of six (three of which are Canadian champions, plus one has an obedience title and another has numerous agility titles). This will be Secret's first litter. Chevy is a Best Puppy in Group winner, a group placer, and has mulitple breed wins from the classes over specials. In obedience, Chevy has earned many high in class awards. Chevy comes from a litter of six (three of which are Canadian champions, including one that is a Dam of Merit). He has eight Canadian champions and one American champion to his credit. Chevy was bred by Mary Curl of Shadowdale Boxers in Ontario, and he is owned and loved by Doris and Dennis Avery in Saskatchewan.

This litter between Secret and Chevy is ABC Futurity nominated for 2009. These nine beautiful linebred puppies were born on 13 August 2008. There are two flashy brindle girls, one semi-flashy fawn girl, one classic fawn girl, one classic dark brindle girl, one flashy light brindle male, one classic light brindle male, one white male with fawn patches, and one white male with brindle patches. We are very excited about this litter as it has been planned more or less from the moment that Secret herself was born!
