Overview
The South African Boerboel is the only South African dog specifically bred for guarding and protecting without being aggressive. Dating back to 1652, this breed is a descendant of the Boer dog. In the 20th century, the Boerboel was nearly extinct. They were revived, and are steadily gaining in worldwide popularity with dogs being exported and bred in Australia, Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, Russia, and the U.S.A.
Character
This powerful and large breed possesses an even character and keen intuition. It is the keen intuition that enables the South African Boerboel to sense what their human companion is thinking and feeling. They are intelligent, strong, muscular, imposing, and impressive.
Temperament
The South African Boerboel is not recommended for inexperienced or first time dog owners. This breed will do okay with other dogs, cats, and other household pets. They are calm, loving, intelligent, and obedient. They are extremely affectionate with children and make excellent playmates. The South African Boerboel is fearless, confident, and highly protective of their family, home, and territory. This breed is sensitive and will only act aggressively upon danger if they detect hostile intentions or are asked to do so.
Care
The South African Boerboel requires regular brushing to remove loose and dead hair. Bathing should be done when necessary. This breed has no health issues due to careful and selective breeding.
Coat
The South African Boerboel's coat is smooth, dense, and short. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
The South African Boerboel requires a dominant owner. Obedience training is absolutely crucial. This breed will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed training methods. South African Boerboel's require respect, firmness, and consistency.
Activity
The South African Boerboel breed is not recommended for apartment living. They do best with a large securely fenced yard. They should never be left alone or unsupervised when outside. The South African Boerboel thrives on family play time and securely leashed walks.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of South African Boerboel puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

You need to do the best thing for all the dogs involved. You made the choice to bring a new dog into the home and it is not working out. The dog has some sort of aggression issue and it's now time to choose. You can either keep the dogs separated at all times and work with an experienced behaviorist, try to find a new home for the dog, or put the dog down. Aggression should not be tolerated, but needs to be understood and managed. You, as an owner, need to be truthful with yourself and figure out how much time and money you have to be able to work with your dog. It is not fair to the other dogs in your home, or the 1 year old dog to allow her to be aggressive. A behaviorist will be able to figure out what type of aggression she is displaying, but unless you plan on working with her, you need to protect the other dog's in your home and other people's dogs by managing her correctly or having her put down.

Your vet will be able to tell you, but on average the first vaccination is done at 6 -7 weeks old.

Your dog has fear issues from being socialized incorrectly. Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer. He/She will be able to help you with this situation.

you're very lucky if you get a nice one for $1,000. Usually they're between $1,000-$4,000.

I removed him from around my female pit bull that was in heat thinking this would help but he still will not eat no matter what I give him. Has anyone experienced this if so, what did you do? I took him to vet and he checks out as good no worms, no parasites please help.

This is common in male dogs. They are too distracted to eat and they expend extra energy feeling emotionally and physically excited. My "worst" stud has to come inside the house (females outside) and be hand fed fresh meat or canned food. Some males are so bad that they or their female's had to live at a friend's house or a boarding kennel for a few weeks. An idea: take your male for a car ride to anywhere else at least 5 miles away (so he can't smell her) and feed him there. Then come home after "dinner". Try to keep the female's scent out of the car. If you do take him or her anywhere- make sure you use a good leash and collar! Either one may try to bolt suddenly since they are not in their "right minds". Spaying your female will help in the future, but it won't change her scent much right now. Neutering your male might help a little in the future, but he may still be affected.

You might consider telling your boerboel a firm "NO!" with a scowl, not a yell but certainly not a whisper either, while you push it off. That's what I did with my dog and it worked. Don't push so hard that it hurts the dog, but so that it gets the dog's attention.

All different situations. When I was petting him, giving him a treat, moved my arm on the couch, opening the door. My husband has no problems with him. I tried doing all the alpha things, only feeding him. No petting etc. Yesterday he bit me I was laying on the floor and he stood over me and was on my hair - I tryed to move and he bit my hand. At this point my husband and family want to get rid of him. I love him unconditionally. He only displays this behavior at home. At dog parks he rolls on his back for complete strangers to pet him, yet I am not allowed. I love him so much. I trained him until he was a year old. Then I could no longer walk him. I play ball with him daily and my husband takes him for long runs in the morning and night. Please help I don't want to give him up. I know he loves me but, I am not Alpha I guess. thank you.
