South African Boerboel

February 4, 2017

South African Boerboel doesn't sound like the massive, protective Mastiff that it is. They have thick, stocky bodies that are brindle, brown, cream, reddish brown and tawny colored with a black mask and ears. South African Boerboel's are of Mastiff stock, large animals, and act like the typical Mastiff. They are protective of their family, but can be discerning as to whether a stranger is a threat or not. They like to be with their people, and are friendly and affectionate to their own. South African Boerboels originate from a tough and dangerous land, which has worked to their advantage to create a truly tough and sturdy dog. South African Boerboels are strong, intelligent, and territorial.

The Boerboel is an average shedder and easy to groom. The occasional brushing and a monthly bath and nail trim is all that is needed. The breed has an outer coat that is normally coarse and straight, and an undercoat that is soft and dense.
Its coat is short, dense, smooth, soft, and shiny. Their coat color can be various shades of red, brown, brindle, black or fawn. Many dogs have a black mask around their mouth that sometimes extends to their eyes and ears.
