To the Foxboro Farm website. We have designed this site as a showcase for the two wonderful breeds that we love, the Golden Retriever and the English Springer Spaniel. Please use the menu at the top of the page to navigate through our site.

Foxboro came into being in 1983 when I purchased two Golden Retrievers from Kathy Heisler of Thornfield Kennels. Unfortunately, one of those original dogs was dysplasic, so Kathy replaced her with the dog that would grow up to become Ch. Thornfield Chase Manhattan. Chase was an all breed and Specialty Best In Show winner and a member of the GRCA Show Champions Hall of Fame. He opened the door for me and I was off.

I purchased a sister of Chase (the breeding was done four times and produced 17 Champions for Thornfield) who became Ch. Thornfield Step Aside. "Cassie" was the foundation bitch for Foxboro. She was a top producer, with group and Specialty winning children. Cassie was what I consider to be the ideal Golden Retriever in type, temperament and health. She lived to the lovely old age of thirteen and a half. Both Cassie and Chase were Outstanding Producers with the Golden Retriever Club of America. While we still have an interest in Goldens, the focus of Foxboro is primarily on Springers presently.

The first English Springer Spaniel entered my life as a gift to my daughter, Alex, in 1998. This bitch, who became Ch. Pembroke La Vida Loca, changed everything! Known as "Allie Bean", she quickly became our favorite house dog and finished her championship easily. Allie was bred by Alice Berd (Pembroke) and Sandra Dunn. She was a wonderful foundation for our breeding program in Springers. We lost Allie in the spring of 2011 and while our heartdog is gone, we are fortunate enough to have her legacy live on through over 20 champions, agility and obedience titled dogs, therapy dogs and cherished family companions.

We are passionate about Springers.. While some Foxboro dogs are show dogs, the majority are lovely companion dogs that are part of the family. My goal is to produce beautiful, healthy and sane dogs regardless of their "profession".  I will not compromise on health or temperaments! All breeding stock must have their health clearances as well as sterling temperaments. Many hours of thought and research goes into each planned Foxboro breeding. We adhere to the parent club's Code of Ethics (ESSFTA) and are members of the ESSFTA Breeder Referral. I maintain  lifelong support for any Foxboro dog.
