Not familar with the kennel, but make sure they health test - IMO cannot go wrong with a healthy boxer!!!! *Good Luck in your search!

I've never heard of that breeder either. I also looked at one of the pups pedigree, and no one sounds familiar. That's not to say they are a bad breeder. Like Heather mentioned, just make sure they do all the appropriate health testing. It says on the site that the health testing is done and that hard copies are available. I would want to see them. * * Here is a list of what boxers should be tested for before breeding.

I haven't heard of the kennel, she's in Canada right? But she has a girlie that I swear looks just like Flick! * She says she health tests, which is great, make a copy of the boxer tests and ask her about them

Yes, Norah's in Canada, so a lot of the lines are Canadian. *She also has a lot of the 'old' lines like Schoolmaster, Holly Lane, Shieldmont, or the Veni Vidi Vici dog, which you don't see too often (close up) in today's pedigrees. *I don't know her personally so can't comment on her practices; she mentions health testing so I'd just ask about that and see if you feel comfortable with her answer.

Norah McGriskin is a fantastic breeder! She puts alot of time, energy and money into her dogs. She is always in the showring through out Canada and the US. Her dogs are health tested and she would not have an issue showing them to you. As a fellow Canadian breeder I would highly recommend her, as would alot of other breeders.
