the 24th of January, 2001, early in the morning, Noëlle
called me: "Eric, you should go and see at Jardins
de Passiflore: a wonderful fawn male was just born!".
Noëlle knew that I was looking for a very special
puppy as I was regularly bothering her since 4 months.
I did not know a lot, even if, in my family, we had
pet boxers since 1974, but my requirements were very
precise and, as the mating Perico x Lhétie
had been announced on Les Jardins de Passiflore’s
website, I had the intuition that I was going to find
the puppy I was looking for.
When I saw Sherpa, 2 days later, I immediatly understood
that he was "The One". Once again, I did
not know a lot, but he had this enormous muzzle, this
already fantastic color and pigmentation and Sylvie,
Noëlle and François were so thrilled …
Sylvie agreed to sell Sherpa to me but under the condition
that I would show him. I absolutely wanted him, so
… I promised and that’s how since the
1st of May 2001, at the "Régionale d’Elevage
de Bénouville", Sherpa is shown, successfully,
all over Europe.
Sherpa’s nice «plastique» would
be nothing without his very well balanced temperament
and his outstanding working abilities. He is a bit
stubborn and quite independant but he is also very
clever and affectionate. I realize how I am lucky
that Sherpa is my first own boxer and I am very grateful
to Sylvie Chenard for her trust.
