    The South African Mastiff – Boerboel.The forgotten breed.

    This breed is popular in South Africa and surprisingly  not   much coverage is given about this self assured and fearless breed.

    In the early 1900’s the Englishmen brought Bulldogs and mastiffs into South Africaand some of these dogs were bred into the Boerboel population.In the early 80’s a serious search started again for the original Boer dog which covered large parts of southern Africa. Two hundred and fifty were found and only seventy two selected to be registered. Selective breeding started and at last the dog of the old South African pioneers was ready to be registered as a pure breed. These dogs are now registered with the South African Boerboel Association.
