It was 1987 when Dave's secretary offered us a Boxer Puppy, we must admit that we had never even seen a Boxer, so we dutifully set off to see a Dog Show and check out the Boxer Breed. We were both impressed by what we saw, therefore sealing the deal, that was how Tyson (Ch.Penzberg Winter Knight) came into our lives leading us into the Show scene. For a novice David did extremely well Showing Tyson -notching up 1,545 Challenge points,including Best in Shows,numerous Groups and Challenges at both Specialty and All Breed Shows. Tyson was retired after winning a triumphant Best of Breed at the prestigious Melbourne Royal, in 1992 at the age of 5.1/2 years. During this time we had also purchased a mate for Tyson from the Erosdom Kennels, Tasmania, our darling Bo (Ch.Erosdon Bo Peep), who was to become our foundation bitch. The names of these two remarkable dogs form the name of our prefix, thus Tyeanbo Boxers came to be. We exhibited very successfully, but due to Dave transferring with his job, we lived in Sydney for the next 6 years. It was in Sydney that we mated these two wonderful dogs, Tyson and Bo, producing our first litter of 7 puppies of which 4 became Aust.Champions and amassed approximately 2,800 Challenge points between them.
during our stay in New South Wales we went on to win many awards and became one of the leading Kennels, winning many Best in Shows , at both all Breeds and Specialty Shows incuding Best in Groups and numerous class in Show and in Group awards. Tyson and Bo's son Creed ,Ch.Tyeanbo Nights Choice, was twice Top Boxer in 1993 and 1994 and their daughter Lucy finished on top of the Boxer Bitch pointscore in 1992. These two were never out of the winners ring , together with their litter sister Kale Ch. Tyeanbo Knight n Gale and brother, Turbo - Ch. Tyeanbo Knight Crusader (owned and exhibited by Miss. A. Keevers)they made quite a name for Tyeanbo and won us much acclaim, specially considering it was out first litter. A record we are very proud of, but more importantly proud of these beautiful boxers. We then mated Bo to Am.Ch. Merrilanes Golden Gloves (Imp.USA) from this union and a litter of two we kept "DARCY" Grand Champion Tyeanbo Gold'n'Bold. Together with Creed ,Lucy, Kale and Darcy we continued to win many Best in Shows in New south Wales. We did not breed again for over two years. In 1995 we finally settled back in our home town of Melbourne, on 20 acres, where our lovely Boxers have the run of the property, with a log fire in their kennels in the winter and out door facilities under the gum trees for the summer.
In 1996 we were approached by Gerald Munro, stating he wished to purchase a Boxer puppy to commence showing. As we do not breed very often we told him if he would like to wait we may have one in twelve months. It was 18 months later that Gerald purchased Sophie (Ch. Tyeanbo Miss Gold n girl ADX.JDX.E.T.) from us, since then he has become a good friend sharing the exhibiting of all our Show team with David. We then offered Gerald a partnership, an offer he accepted to our delight. Gerald had been involved with the equestrian scene for many years, both as a competitor and is an accomplished Judge. Having judged last year at the Hobart Royal Show he was honoured this year to be one of three Judges chosen to Judge the "National Horse of the Year".
During our years involved with the Boxers, we have won many Best in Show awards at both Specialty and All Breeds level, including numerous Royal Challenges, Best in Groups, Champion of Champions finalists and were choosen in 1999 by Pedigree Pal as their Top Breeder completing a T.V. commercial which starred our Grand Champion Tyeanbo Gold n Bold, Ch.Tyeanbo Choice of Queens and a puppy Tyeanbo Powerful Choice. So that completes our resume, except to say that over the past 16 years we have bred, owned and/or exhibited some 19 Champions, another Tyeanbo Big Bold Wolf "Lan" completed his C.D.X title in Obedience and Gerald's girl Sophie is our first dual titled Boxer as she is an Australian Champion, has her Agility title and more recently completed her Endurance Test then gaining her Jumping Dog title. Sophie is also the first Boxer in Victoria to attain such Title and we are checking, but we believe also the first in Australia. Sophie was also the star together with mary Tyler Moore in the movie "A Most Deadly Family". More Information
