The Taratan Story

Champion Nivana Star Blaze

John & Roxie Kennedy

Taratan Boxers is a relatively small kennel situated in Melbourne Australia, and had its beginnings in 1982 when we purchased a red and white male bred from the Lorralane bloodlines.   This line originated from the famous Gremlin Boxers of England.   This first Boxer was Nirvana Star Blaze (later to become Champion Nirvana Star Blaze "SATAN").   Satan did us proud in the show arena winning countless groups and several BIS & RUBIS, amassing over 700 points before we lost him at age 5 years.

In 1983 we purchased a mate for Satan by the name of Crowlee Miss Winkadale.  "Tara", later to become Champion Crowlee Miss Winkadale.   These two Boxers quite often contributed to us winning double challenge at shows.   Tara was not a big group winner, her claim to fame was going Reserve Challenge to Champion TonUp Glory Be (Top Winning Bitch of the day) under Joseph Heine, Boxer specialty judge and breeder from USA.

Tara was the dam of Champion Taratan Shower Bonnet "Rebecca" who amongst her countless wins including BIS & BIG, won BPIS at the First Boxer National in Melbourne under June Grover (UK). BIS at Boxer Assoc. of Victoria Specialty under Valerie Garrett (UK) and wait for it! ! ! !

Best Exhibit in Show ROYAL MELBOURNE SHOW 1991 under Kari Jarwinnen (Finland).   The entry was 7,321 dogs.

Champion Crowlee Miss Winkadale was put to Champion GunTop Rocket Man (from NSW) to achieve this magnificent specimen of a Boxer.

Miss Winkadale also produced Champion Taratan Miss Genevieve with the help of Champion Nirvana Star Blaze. Miss Genevieve was put to Champion Moljon Surprise Packet at Marbleton (imp UK) and from that litter a magnificent red and white bitch was born,   Champion Taratan Easy Goin   After she became a champion she had an unfortunate accident, losing an eye.   This resulted in her early retirement from the ring, but this did not prevent her from producing champion stock to carry on her lines.

When we lost Shower Bonnet we decided to lease back her full litter sister, Taratan Light-n-Lass who we had sold and never went in a show ring.  We put her to Champion Belmanta Thief of Hearts, BIS at the 1st Boxer National under June Grover (UK). This mating produced an outstanding brindle male Grand Champion Taratan Summer Rain.

The first Boxer Grand Champion in Australia.

Summer Rain has produced Champion Taratan Autumn Leaves, Champion Taratan Summer Holiday, and Grand Champion Taratan Royal Command.
1997-98 was Radin's best year.   BIS Utility Club of NSW, BIS Western Districts Specialty NSW, and TOP BOXER National Dog Point Score.

After producing many champions over the ensuing years we come to the present.

We have had a sucession of champions down from all the above Boxers, many BIS winners, including Ch.Tarantan Free N Easy. Also Multi Group winners too numerous to mention. As you go through our pages you will see many of the wonderful Boxers we have produced, not always owned by ourselves, but also by other kennels around Australia.

Our young stock at the moment is showing lots of promise and keeping the Taratan flag flying high!

To sum up, we have produced 22 Champions, 2 Grand Champions and our two foundation Boxers to make it 26 Champions in 19 years of breeding.
