Dog Breeds

African Boerboel

Coming from South Africa, the Boerboel is a large working molosser breed of dog. The Boerboel breed was named for the Afrikaans/Dutch word “boer” meaning “farmer” which captures the spirit of this “farmer’s dog.” This dog was historically bred in South Africa with the purpose of guarding the homestead. Although it is uncertain which dog breeds the Boerbel originated from, it is believed that the dog derived from interbreeding of indigenous African species with breeds brought by Dutch, French and British settlers.
