Welcome on our Boerboel website!
We are the family Vervloet from BELGIUM,
on this website you can look at the pictures of our South African Boerboels.
What in 1999 started with the love for one Boerboel is in meanwhile a hobby
that's gotten out of control with the result that now we have three
generations of our own breeding guarding our home.
I do say hobby because for us it's pure avocation, we only breed a few
litters each year. If you know that out of one single female you also can
produce two litters each year, and we have a small dozen of Boerboels
running arround here, explains enough I guess.
It's not easy to breed a good Boerboel, but the longer we are in this breed, the
more clear it becomes whitch is the way to perfection. It's more than just
hard selection, some times you have to make compromises to prevent that rare
genetic material gets lost.
To learn more about this breed and the different bloodlines with all their
own specific charasteristics we travelled the past years already three times
to the land of origin South-Africa.
How it could come this far obviously has everything to
do with the special character and unique appearance
of these Mollossers. For us a good Boerboel is a social dog, he is reliable, obedient, affectionate,
loyal......to put it briefly he has everything that makes him four us the
perfect family dog. Apart from the fact that they have all the qualities of a
devoted family dog, is that in any case of danger they will protect us with
their life. That's what makes this breed so exceptional and preventing that
these qualities get lost is exactly our striving.
The Character of the Boerboel
The Boerboel is the only breed in the world specifically
bred to guard and protect and as watchdog.
A cranky, temperamental dog that stays surly after being reprimanded, is
not a Boerboel. You should purchase a Boerboel for his even character.
This was and always should be his main quality. Your Boerboel should
qualify himself as your best friend.
He should know what you are thinking, when you feel threatened, he
should know when you approve or disapprove of a stranger and share your
He should be able to recognize your fear. Any Boerboel owner should be
able to confirm this. These traits should be recognizable from
puppyhood. He should, with a growl, be able to tell you: "I’m
here, always. I will guard you with my life."
If you allow him to attack, he will growl like a lion and fight
ferociously without taking his own safety into account.
No wonder Aristotle named the forefathers of these dogs: Leontix (sons
The Romans also apparently believed that these dogs were obtained by
crossing a dog and a lion.
There are cases on record when a lone Boerboel time and again won the
fight against a leopard! He is definitely a child’s friend and
playmate. He does not only accept one person as his master, but accepts
the protection of the whole family as his duty and is affectionate to
all of them, without exception.
Many a story has been told about a Boerboel spending hour after hour
guarding a little baby in a pram.
He feels the whole family belongs to him and his sole purpose is to
protect them, with his life, if necessary.
Our forefathers required the following from their Boerboel:
During the day the dog must go to the veld with the children to guard
the sheep. There he should catch a hare for them to cook for lunch.
He should also protect them against all danger that may threaten them.
Tonight he should lie in front of the fire at home and protect the whole
family against anything that may be lurking in the dark.
