On Jan 23rd, 2022, my wife and I became the proud owner of a Boykin Spaniel, Cheyenne, acquired from Tommy Reeves of MaxR Boykins of Nakina, NC. I had decided on getting a new gun dog for duck and dove hunting, and my wife was not very keen on another Lab, so I started to look for smaller breed. Once I decided on that the Boykin would fit the bill, I found MaxR on the GunDogBreeders.com website. I called Tommy and left him a message which he returned the same day. After a detailed conversation, I decided he was the breeder I wanted to do business with. We decided on a female puppy from a spring 2022 liter. Then in mid-January 2022, Tommy called to inform me that if I was ready, he would have a female available on around the weekend of the 22nd. The wife and I made the 1 1/2-hour drive from Hope Mills, NC the 23rd. Tommy met us as we pulled into his driveway. After a brief conversation about hunting and dogs, he showed us around his kennel area. The wife and I were impressed on how clean it was, and the great condition of his Boykins. He then introduced us to our puppy, needless to say it was love at first sight. After some more conversation about what to expect from an eight-week-old Boykin and duck hunting, Tommy provided us with her worming record and a bag of the dog food that she was eating. Today will mark four months since we welcomed Cheyenne into our family, and we couldn't be more pleased. Cheyenne has responded to her training, whether it be housebreaking or basic obedience smoothly. She has taken off on preliminary retriever training such as water work or fetching with ease. I am looking forward to sending her for professional training, and many years of shared hunting trips. If you are looking for a top-notch hunting companion with great bloodlines. then MaxR is where you want to look. I would highly recommend Tommy Reese and MaxR Boykins to all of my hunting friends. One more item is that Tommy takes great pride in his dogs, and will keep up with they're progress.

Tommy Reeves has an absolutely wonderful set up with MaxR Boykins. My wife ordered a pup last June and kept in touch with Tommy to find out when our pup was going to be born. Her litter came on February 19 and he left us know immediately. He also sent us a picture of her when she was a week old. We arrived at his home last Saturday, the day after our Piper turned 7 weeks. Tommy and his wife were both very hospitable and knowledgeable about Boykins. I believe we spent nearly an hour and a half talking to them on their porch after getting Piper. He and I spent a long time talking gun dogs, hunting and guns. I even got an invite to hunt ducks this coming November. Their kennels were very clean and the dogs all appeared to be in excellent condition. He had advised us on the kind of food he was feeding so we already had some along for our two-day trip back to Pennsylvania. Piper was a gem for the entire trip. She is now in her new home and we absolutely love her. I would highly recommend MaxR Boykins and Mr. Tommy to anyone who is looking for a top grade Boykin.

We have had many dogs during my lifetime, pets and hunting dogs. We have had labs, Goldens, Brittany's, schnauzer and a cairn terrier. By far the Boykin puppy we just got from Mr. Reeves is the best! She is smart, calm and overall just amazing! Mr. Reeves was patient with us. We asked weekly for updates and pictures. He was understanding when we arrived early on adoption day. If you need a pet or hunting companion you NEED one of his dogs!

Our journey looking for a Boykin Spaniel began May 2019
We had a Boykin for 14 years before he passed. A long time went by and we decided to look for another one. My husband is a commercial fisherman and wanted to have a dog to go fishing and ride in the truck. These dogs are perfect for that. We were waiting for another Breeder when he got impatient and found out about Tommy Reeves and MaxRBoykins. He called and Tommy said he had one more litter this year and we could get a male. So excited.
10 years ago my husband was diagnosed with NASH. This is liver disease and it was getting progressively worse, none the less, he wanted this pup no matter what.
Finally the day came, went to meet Tommy and pick up out bundle of joy who came to be called Trigger. We were both so in love with this pup at first sight!
This was the first part of November, we went home and my husband and Trigger went to the coast. They had the best two weeks together, so happy, Trigger was learning a lot.
My husband turned for the worst Thanksgiving Sunday and was hospitalized for a week with ammonia out of control. Meanwhile Trigger was left alone while I went to work, came home and went to hospital. Our lives were turning upside down. And very little time for our bundle of joy. He was in and out of the hospital, a 4 week stay mid-December thru New Years...then to rehab...Trigger stayed in our kitchen, started nipping at my hands, getting unruly because I didn’t have the time to spend with him, our hearts were broken. I didn’t know where to turn, I texted Tommy and told him a shorter version of this. Without hesitation he said for us to bring Trigger back to him. We were so happy for some help. Our prayers were answered.
Early February we took him back,3 hours away, and Tommy said he’d keep him as long as it took, not to worry. No one will ever know the relief this was to us because we did not want to give our Trigger up, but we knew we couldn’t handle him at that point.
My husband was getting worse, in and out of the hospital during the Covid epidemic where hospitals were allowing no visitors. The only thing world help him was a liver transplant. April 22 after many prayers, dr visits, classes and numerous other qualifications he was “on the list”!! Finally! So now we wait for a call that they have a liver for him. Many many more long sleepless nights went by, more hospital visits/stays. Late June we got a call, be at Duke ER by midnight Saturday Possible liver...turned out no go...came home. Bad day Monday, paramedics took him back to Duke. Wednesday July 8 got the call there was a liver!!!! He got a new liver 2AM and came through surgery and doing well. So thankful, couple days after surgery he said, I’m going to get my dog! Dr encouraged him to wait a bit.
We picked Trigger up early October. Wow had he grown, 40 lbs of him! He is adjusting well to us and we to him. Tommy Reeves has been there whenever we need him. So encouraging and ready to help. He is really an answer to prayer.
So if you are looking to get a Boykin please contact MaxRBoykins. Tommy has developed his own bloodline and these dogs are so smart and needless to say so beautiful!!
Our Trigger is so pretty and we love him very much.
Tommy Reeves is a true friend, so glad we found him.

The entire experience with Tommy has been superb. He kept us informed and was patient with all our questions (this was our first dog and we had many!). We could not be more impressed with Tommy’s devotion to his dogs. Our little Lucy has fallen right in line with our family after only two weeks with us and is making the transition from country girl to queen sporting dog of the Atlanta suburbs! We are so impressed with our puppy’s kind demeanor to people mixed with her keen interest in pheasant wings and her overall surroundings. Could not be happier with Tommy and our little Lucy. Also impressed with Tommy’s follow ups after pick-up. He truly loves his dogs and wants to be sure they are in good homes!

After our last lab passed away, we settled in on a Boykin Spaniel for our next dog. Boykins have a reputation of being very smart and great hunters, while also being great companions. However, we also found that you have to be very careful when you choose a Boykin breeder because Boykins can have several different health conditions. We found Tommy through another breeder who attested to his honesty and to the quality of the Boykins he raises. We took this on faith after talking to him since we had never met Tommy in person or been to his kennel. Once we picked up our new puppy, Grady, we knew this was so true. Our Grady is so beautiful and smart - and we feel so blessed to have her. She really is perfect - and we also have the peace of mind knowing that she is clear of the potentially harmful inheritable diseases. We've only had her for less than two weeks but we know she's exactly the puppy we were hoping for.

Picked up a Male off of Mr. Tommy recently, and everything is just right. Tommy Reeves is a good guy to work with, and keeps up with your puppy after purchase.

Just picked up my Boykin puppy last week from Tommy Reeves at MaxR Boykins. Excellent experience with the breeder, my boy Sledge is now 8 weeks old and he’s already swimming and starting to respond to commands. Beautiful dogs there, his dad is a stud and a good looking mom too. I would definitely recommend getting a Boykin from here if you want a great companion and hunting dog. I have high hopes for Sledge this coming waterfowl season.
