History of the Boerboel Breed

The boerboel breed has a rich and fascinating history. Originating in South Africa, these dogs were originally bred as farm-working dogs and guardians of the homestead. The name "boerboel" translates to "farmer's dog" in Dutch/Afrikaans, reflecting their purpose. Over time, boerboels have earned a reputation for their calm and stable temperament, as well as their composure and confidence. Their role as loyal protectors has cemented their place in history and made them highly sought after as family companions.
