My involvement with Boxers started in Queensland in 1962 when I purchased my first bitch from the Brandenberg line. Following a move interstate with the Defence Force, I acquired another two Boxers and a Bull Terrier, the three of which formed an effective wild pig hunting team. This activity cemented a clear understanding and appreciation of the strength, substance, agility and correct holding bite of the Boxer, characteristics that have featured in the Lambda breeding program to this day.
The involvement with Boxers continued and after a break due to overseas service, I teamed up with Arthur in the purchase of the Boxer bitch Landson Miss Pippa. This bitch excelled in the show ring and she became the first champion and the foundation of Lambda Boxers. The Lambda prefix was registered in 1979.
We have bred and exhibited with success both in All Breeds and Specialty shows since then. Our most notable Specialty win was taking out Best in Show with Gr Ch Beanken Starn Heaven under a specialist judge at the 6th Boxer National Specialty with an entry of 282 Boxers. Her sire Ch Lambda Whata Surprise was also a Specialty winner. We have also exported to Europe and New Zealand with some of those exports doing well in the show ring.
Our kennel has enjoyed significant success with breeding and showing, and we have tried to resist the 'fashions' that cross the show ring from time to time, preferring to stay with the balanced Boxer capable of performing the function it originally fulfilled.
