Tanner is the newest addition at Jovilea.  After Pagan passed, I was without a boy in the house, and as much as I love my girls, there's just something special about a goofy Boxer boy.  I had been wanting a dark brindle for many years, but was unwilling to compromise on quality.  When I first saw Tanner, not only did his color catch my eye, but there was something about him I really liked.  As I watched him grow in pictures, he kept impressing me with his quality, and I finally couldn't resist anymore and reached out to his breeder, Crystal Stock. Tanner joined the rest of the crew in early April, and he has certainly livened things up around here!
He is a nice blending of NA and European bloodlines.  He has been shown 1 weekend in UKC and needs just one Competition win to earn his Championship. At just a year of age, he is still all legs and no brain, so he won't hit the AKC rings until he is a bit more mature, physically and mentally!
