We are a small show, breeding kennel which is set in the countryside in a quiet location of Breedon on the Hill, - which is based on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border. All of our dogs live within our home, not kenneled.
I was granted my kennel affix, verdendo in 2007, i wanted the affix to be personal to me so after some weeks of thinking i came up with verdendo, after my nanna Vera (ver), my grandad Dennis (den) and myself Donna (do)
I have owned boxers now for many years. My mum decided after years of nagging, my 16th birthday was the perfect time to give me what wanted, my very own boxer dog, Hooch. Hooch was purely a pet but this is where my passion for boxers developed and i realised i would never be without a boxer in my life. Sadly Hooch passed away in 2006 due to a heart condition, cardiomyopathy, in which he bravely battled the last couple of years, he may be gone but he will never be forgotten, he was a special boy and was the best birthday present i have ever had!
A few months after losing Hooch i went on the hunt for a well bred, quality boxer pup, and found a breeder in Millom (Cumbria), which was expecting a litter in which both parents were health tested, had fabulous temperaments and were of sound construction with out standing pedigrees, with both parents also getting great results in the show ring! Eventually in October 2006, Emmy was born, and Emmy will now be the foundation bitch for breeding any new additions to the Verdendo Kennels.
Emmy is now retired from breeding and showing, she is now speyed after having 2 litters, and now enjoys the luxurious life of lounging by the fire and doing as she pleases. She gave us a special girl, Verdendo Yule be Lucky, (Taz to her friends), who has had a wonderful start to her show career gaining her stud book number by winning the RCC (as a puppy) the first for us. Taz will hopefully, also follow in her mums footsteps when the time comes to take on maternal duties.
We do occasionally have litters, i take time in planning my litters ahead, to try and ensure quality pups that conform to breed standard, excellant health and fantastic temperaments. I am extremely passionate about bringing healthy puppies into the world, all of our dogs are heart tested as required. I have studied my pedigrees, and can ensure to give you background history of your new puppies 5 generation pedigree.
