Boerboels originated in South Africa, where they were bred to protect and guard their family without attacking. Boerboels are big loving dogs that have a big heart and are always keen to play. They are brave, dutiful, calm, intelligent and make fantastic guard dogs. They adore and love their family and take their job of protecting them very seriously.
Your Boerboel will be your best friend and will know when you need love and affection. He will be able to sense when you simply don’t like somebody, and will move his whole body between you and the other person without you needing to say a word. His presence and body mass will be enough to warn any intruder to back off.
When you invite people over and introduce them to your Boerboel he will accept them. But he will always stay on guard until the person has left the house. If you ever feel in danger, he will know what to do to make you feel safe. His favorite time is when the entire family is home together and he will lie and rest near you to make sure everybody feels safe.
A Boerboel’s coat is easy to maintain and regular brushing is all that is required.
