Boerboel dog

The Boerboel was developed from the large, mastiff type dogs brought by settlers to the cape area of South Africa from way early in the 17 century and afterwards. The intimidating Boerboel is actually affectionate with family and friends. The Boerboel makes an exceptional guard dog along with it size and strength.  Training this do at an early age and socializing him with people and other pets are very important for this breed.
