Sampson comes to us from Noel and
Noemi Mercado of Loganville, GA.  He is
a littermate brother to
Jada (CH. Horne's
Serenity Jada) and a maternal brother to
Cali (Ch. Pritchett N Bay's Doin' It Cali
Style).  The name Magnum Opus is from
the Latin "Great Work" and refers to the
largest, and perhaps best work of an
artist.  We feel that this is a great name
for Sampson, a dog who is truly correct
and close to the Boxer Breed Standard.  
Sampson is a showy dog with beautiful,
fluid movement just like his siblings
here at Windward Boxers.  When he is
standing still we look at him and think
type, type, type!  He is very much the
epitome of a Boxer male, possessing a
nice head with a great stop and turn up.  
He has double dark haws with excellent
natural pigmentation of his mask.

back to Ch. Golden Haze Tuxedo.
One of his strongest traits is his bite, and we feel you will go far to find a better or
wider bite on a Boxer anywhere.  Sampson has a great personality and is an
incredibly intelligent and alert dog.  We are very excited about the prospect of
breeding him to our Bosco daughters in the future and making him available to
approved outside bitches as well.

Sampson finished his AKC Championship on August 31st, 2012.  He was owner
handled to the majority of his single points by his previous owner, Noel Mercado, and
owner handled for his last point by Alexandra Dourte.

Sampson is available to approved, health tested bitches at
Murbe Boxers and
Boarding Kennels.  Interested parties should contact Windward Boxers and/or Murbe
Boxers for more information on breeding to Sampson.
