FLASH!!!!!!!!!  Blackjack is a SOMA!!! Blackjack son, Zeus, Am. Ch. Studio’s Heart Beat Of Shadigee, finished his American Championship on 1/18/10 by winning his third major with Handler Jack Brown on the FL circuit making Blackjack a new SOMA!

FLASH!!!!!!!  Blackjack is the 2007 Canadian Sire Of The Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!  He produced seven Canadian Champions in 2007!!!!!!!  This amazing honor wouldn’t have been possible without the help from Patti and Dave Gilmour, Zaracon Boxers, and of course, Sawyer, BPIS Can. Ch. Shadowdale’s Road To Zaracon DOMC.  There were five pups out of the lovely litter of 10 that finished their Can. titles in 2007 giving their dam the honor of  2007 Dam Of The Year.  

We were fortunate to have met and made a friend of Josie O’Reilly, Summer Boxer.  Josie had a litter planned with a fantastic pedigree and parents.  When we saw the quality in the litter, we knew we had to have one of the pups.  Blackjack fit that bill.  The rest is history.

Blackjack conforms to the standard of the Boxer.  He’s a friendly clown at home and quite the showman in the ring.  He won his Canadian title when he was 10 months old.  He was completely owner handled by his beloved owner Lee Nowak.  Blackjack finished by winning BOB over many champions.  He went on to win Group 3 that day.  He has won a Best Puppy in Show in Canada and multiple Puppy Group Firsts.  Blackjack also won a Group 2 at Canada’s Invitational Best Puppy Of The Year!  He has many BOB’s, Group Placements, and Best Puppy In Breed in Canada. 

Blackjack won BISS when he was 10 months old at the Boxer Club Of Western New York’s Specialty Show.  Blackjack is a multiple BOB winner in the US.  He also has multiple BOS at Specialty Shows. He has continually succeeded in keeping us amazed!

Blackjack is fully health tested with normal results.  He was holtered, color echo dopplered, thyroid tested, OFA and PennHipp tested.   Blackjack is ARVC NEGATIVE!!!!  In addition to those tests we did the Von Willibrand test on him and he was negative.  Blackjack is a DM carrier.

He is 25 1/2 inches tall.  His usual and ideal weight is 66 lbs.  

If longevity is important to you keep reading.  Blackjack’s sire, Can. Ch. Berlane’s Corporate Image SOMC POM, was put to sleep because of a back injury at just over 11 years old.  Blackjack’s dam, Can. Ch. Berlane’s Wild Thing Stella CD DOMC POM,  was helped to the Rainbow Bridge at 14 years old with excellent health clearances.   Blackjack’s grandsire and great grandsire, Ch. Rochil’s Grande Marshall, POM, SOM, LOM, was almost 12 years old when he passed on.

Blackjack possesses a true Boxer personality. He is a loving companion with a heart made of gold.  He passes his fun loving, caring personality down to his children.
