About Us

We are Brian and Kerry Rodgers. I grew up in South Africa with boxers and always knew that when I got my first dog it would be a boxer. My husband's uncle had a boxer when he was growing up and Brian thought that he would like a boxer too.

When we got married in 1998, Brian bought Shaka for me as a wedding present. He was the mischevious, determined, little puppy who had a lot to say to say about everything and I just had to have him. Unfortunately, at the time, I did not know anything about the health problems facing the breed or responsible breeding practices, and we bought Shaka from a BYB. Over the years he has experienced health-related issues - most notably, 3 operations on his back knees to repair ligament tears - and these got me interested in the health problems facing this breed. These problems have slowed Shaka down considerably - although you may not notice this were you to see him playing in the back yard with Star. He has turned into a pretty mellow fellow who will do absolutely anything for food.

A couple of years ago we decided that it was time for Shaka to have a playmate and so, I started looking for a reputable breeder. I found such breeders in Dan and Wendy Still, of Bluecollar Boxers, in San Antonio. At the time I just wanted a pet puppy that I could do agility with - showing had not even crossed my mind. After speaking with Dan I somehow (????) found myself agreeing to be put on the list for a show puppy from their next litter. That is how Star came to be part of our family. I was planning on doing agility with her and thought that showing might be something else fun to try (which of course, is what it was).

Star and I are having loads of fun with everything that we are doing and she sure is giving me a lot of firsts - first show dog, first champion, first agility dog and first obedience dog.
