Boerboel is the dog that you can’t not love him. This breed is extraordinarily smart, inteligent, faithful and trusting to the owner. They are well-balanced and very relaxed. Boerboel has really very good smell and hearing and he learn very fast and quickly remember everything. Sometimes they even can predict the movements of owner. Tenacious companion of everyday life. Always greedy for every type of hugs and things like that. Boerboel has any problem with life with dogs another breed (in my case Great Swiss Mountain Dog and Cattle Dog).
I can say that he teach other dogs how they should be relax and well-balanced. It is defensive breed with very high strength, so owner must be determined, consistent and calm too. They don’t have health problems and don’t need some big care treatment, cause they have short coat. If you look awesome family and defensive dog, companion of everyday life, boerboel is just for you
