I owned my first boxer over 15 years ago when my children were young, I wanted a gentle but fun dog that was great around kids so after much research, we decided on a Boxer. Treacle fit the bill perfectly, she was a sweet obedient girl with a real love of life, 6 years later after much consideration we decided to welcome our second boxer Izzy (March Lily) into our family. Izzy proved to have such a fantastic temperament and lovely looks, we decided to breed her. I found this a thoroughly rewarding experience thus Izzamoor had begun. In July 2010 I became a Kennel Club Assured Breeder.
We kept Betty (Izzamoor Apple Of His Eye) a lovely bitch from Izzy's first litter and decided to give showing a try, I joined the Essex and Eastern Counties Boxer Club and haven't looked back.
Although our first boxer Treacle has sadly passed away, our love of boxers still continues, we strive to breed quality puppies with superb temperaments so that everyone that has an Izzamoor puppy can experience how wonderful Boxers are and how much pleasure they bring to everyday life.
The Boxer is alert, curious, playful, loyal and dignified. He's self-confident, courageous, strong and athletic. He's a very social dog and loves people. He craves your attention and physical contact. He thrives on pats, hugs, scratches and belly rubs. He loves to sit on your lap! He loves to be with you at all times; he will become your shadow. He is the kind of dog who is always in your face. He's a playful clown. He adores children and is very patient with them and loves to play with them! However because of his boisterous nature he could unintentionally knock-over a small child. He's lively and active around the home, constantly on the move. If he isn't getting enough exercise or becomes bored he'll find mischievous ways to occupy himself: usually chewing anything in sight. He's wary and standoffish with strangers until he warms up to them. He's an instinctive guard dog, protective of his family and will not back down if threatened. He drools and slobbers quite alot, especially after drinking. And he sometimes has flatulence which can be quite smelly .He is well worth all the effort and you will love him endlessly.
He is not a dog that can live outside.
