About EWO Boxers
Earl W. Overstreet is EWO Boxers.  The EWO kennel name is derived from his initials.

In 1955, Earl purchased his first Boxer puppy from the breeders of Marjack Boxers.  That puppy was Marjack's Golden Wit, a plain fawn daughter of CH Captain Lookout of Thornhall and CH Marjack's Golden Mist.  Wit's second litter sired by CH Hectic Acres Loud Speaker (a CH Bang Away of Sirrah Crest, SOM son) in 1959 produced Earl's first champion.  This bitch named EWO's Miss Wink O'Dawn tied for the ABC Annual Award for the bitch winning the Most Working Groups in 1960.

Earl became a professional handler in 1967.

Earl judged the Futurity in 1983, giving the Grand Prize to Bee-Mike's Ebony 'N Ivory, a 6-9 month bitch.

After Earl handled CH Heldenbrand's Jet Breaker to an Award of Excellence at ABC in 1989, they went on to win BOB at the Regional in 1989 and at ABC in 1990, under respected judges John Connolly and Joseph Heine.  Jet Breaker qualified to compete in the Top 20 in 1990 and 1991 under Earl's guidance.

 In 1992, Earl won Frist Prize Futurity Junior from the 15-18 month fawn bitch class with EWO's Cinnamon, a CH Heldenbrand's Jet Breaker daughter out of CH EWO's Crystal, under judge Stephanie Abraham.  Reserve Futurity Junior went to Seaside's EWO Surf Breaker, a litter brother to Cinnamon.  This same year, Earl competed in the Top 20 with CH EWO's Tie Breaker, a son of Jet Breaker. The following year, both Tie and Surfer qualified to compete in the Top 20.

Earl specialed Siggy, Karmel's Dreamweaver, who was the Grand Prize Futurity Winner and Reserve Winners Dog at the 1991 ABC, for breeder/owner Karen Wilson and qualified to compete in the 1995 Top 20.

Earl competed in the Top 20, again, in 1997 and 1998 with CH Tejelo Reflection of Hunter, a CH EWO's Tie Breaker son.

Earl became a Life Member of ABC in 1992. He was given the Good Sportsmanship of the Year award in 1994 and 2010, which is voted upon by his fellow ABC members.

He has been active in the Indian River and Potomac Boxer Clubs, as well as the Roanoke Kennel Club.  Earl continues to breed and is currently campaigning his latest homebred champion, CH EWO's Reflection of Breaker.
