Boerboel Dog breed information
The Boerboel Dog breed was bred as a guard dog, and they certainly are used as such to this day. First used as guard dogs by farmers in South Africa to protect their homesteads from wildlife, this dog breed has certainly adapted to a more modern lifestyle. Nowadays, they are often thought of as family dogs, and why should they not be? Their guarding tendencies and protectiveness quotient to what they may consider ‘pack’ is out of the charts. This is one reason why they are extremely popular as family pets.
