SABOX (The South African Boxer Breed Council of the Kennel Union of Southern Africa) was formed in Bloemfontein on 28 August 2004. All Boxer Clubs affiliated to KUSA automatically become members of SABOX for as long as they are affiliated.

SABOX aims to promote a better understanding and knowledge of Boxers, to advise on the health and well-being of this unique breed and to further the breeding and responsible ownership of Boxers. An important objective is to encourage owners to train their Boxers and for breeders to have their breeding stock evaluated for correct conformation and disposition.

SABOX unites all KUSA affiliated Boxer Clubs in a single representative and democratic body, it serves as a channel of communication and provides the means for closer co-operation and liaison among its members.

Objectives:

  1. To observe and adhere to the Breed Standard adopted by KUSA for the Boxer breed.
  2. To organise shows and competitions and to encourage a spirit of companionship, friendly relations and a good spirit amongst the Clubs and their members.
  3. To preserve, consolidate and strengthen the inherent character and the innate working qualities of the breed by promoting the participation and qualification of Boxers in working tests and trials recognised by KUSA.
  4. To promote the Aptitude Testing of Boxers in order to gauge their working potential.
  5. To promote the registration of Boxers with KUSA and to direct breeders to encourage owners to transfer registered ownership on the acquisition of a dog.
  6. To define criteria for the Advanced Registration of Boxers.
  7. To strive towards obtaining proof of Boxers whose hips and hearts have been examined and certified by the Department of Radiology, Faculty of Veterinary Science, University of Pretoria or other specialist bodies acceptable to both the Federal Council and SABOX and to compile, publish and distribute a list of such Boxers at quarterly intervals.
  8. To publish an informative magazine with promotional material, information on scientific research and advice pertaining to genetics, disease, breeding, rearing, keeping and training of Boxers.
  9. To promote the correct public image of the Boxer.

All the business and affairs of SABOX are managed and controlled by the Representatives of its Member Clubs. Each Member Club is entitled to three votes at any meeting of SABOX. In addition to a maximum of two Breed Representatives, each Club is entitled to one Working Representative with full voting powers, who must have qualified at least one Boxer in any of the following disciplines: Obedience, Classic Working Trials, Breed Working Test, Aptitude Test, IPO, ITT, Agility or Dog Jumping.
