|Shan and Jan have a daughter, Lucy, who is studying psychology at York St John University, in England. She has just returned from America - more precisely New Orleans and the Gulf Coast where she and some friends were involved in re-building projects post Katrina. They are very proud of her and her humanitarian work and Spook too because he lives just 140 miles to the east of New Orleans.|
Shan worked as a Forensic Nurse until a serious assault forced his early retirement. Jan is a Theater Nursing Sister in Urology..
They began breeding and exhibiting our Boxers in 1992 after losing their beloved Skye Terrier in a tragic accident. Jan had previously been owned by a Boxer and thought it a good idea to rekindle that relationship. To date they are owned by six boisterous Boxers - four girls and two boys. All live happily within the house and like nothing more than allowing Jan and Shan to share a bed with them.
Shan's interest in web site design and building began as a hobby (and remains so) and he has received some invaluable advice from other web site authors.
As a result of this input our site Shakatan Boxers has evolved to what it is today. Shan and Jan strive to maintain, update and add to the content of their site and, hopefully, make it not just a “dog site all about their dogs,” but to make it educational as well.
