Burnden Boxers are owned in partnership between Denise, Jeannine and Desnie Pye, who have all exhibited in the show ring and won Challenge Certificates. All three of us judge at Championship level.
We bought our first boxer 'Rustar Reflection of Burnden' in 1982 from Paul and Tina Russell. From our very first litter, Sterling Girl at Rustar went on to be a multiple Championship show class winner including Crufts, her sister Monetary Miss at Burnden was the dam of our first Challenge Certificate winner Burnden Song of Sixpence.
All the boxers we have ever owned and bred have been direct descendants of 'Rustar Reflection of Burnden'. The 'Burnden' affix was first registered in 1984, since then we have bred four British Champions - including a Miniature Pinscher, and an Irish Champion. We've had six further Challenge Certificate winners, three more Reserve Challenge Certificate winners and 6 dogs that have won their class at Crufts.
