Feel safe with the big Boerboel

Boerboel is a member of the Mastiff family. He was developed by 17th-century Dutch settlers in South Africa to protect their families, farms, and livestock.
The Boerboel is a very large domesticated working dog. Muscular, exceedingly strong and loyal to a fault, the South African Mastiff is a tough breed, bred for guarding the homestead in hard African conditions.

The South African Mastiff are very independent dogs but require a good deal of attention from their owners. They are affectionate with children and very loyal but have a tendency to be a bit pig-headed and times. Training from an early age is important for this breed; they are large dogs and first-time owners may find the Boerboel a bit of a challenge.
The Boerboel is a large dog, measuring between 64 and 70cm and weighing in at between 70 to 90 kgs. A healthy Boerboel will live to between 9 and 13 years of age.
