Extracts from History of the Boerbull--
The Boerboel is South Africa's very own breed. Jan van Riebeeck was sent by the East Indian Company to establish a trading post on the Southern point of Africa. He arrived in the Cape on 1652, bringing with him the well-known "Bullenbijter" dog. Others followed bringing with them large dogs, for example the Dog de Bordeux from France and the Spanish Mastiff from Spain. Through the years only the strongest and those who were naturally healthy survived this untamed land. ---- As we know the history of the Boerboel, this is where most people would prefer to stop, as parts of the history is for example where these large dogs from abroad crossed with the dogs of the existing inhabitants of Africa. -------To summarise we can say that over the years the Boerboel was bred from big, strong dogs having both excellent characteristics and strong watchdog instincts. The settlers and their descendants kept these dogs both as a friend and a protector for themselves and their families.
and from the Standard - The Boerboel is a big strong dog, well balanced, with good muscle development and buoyant in movement. The dog should be impressive, and imposing. --- is reliable, obedient and intelligent, with a strong watch-dog instinct. It is self-assured and fearless. --- The face should blend symmetrically with the head, and can be with or without a black mask. --- The ears should be of medium size, v-shaped and should be in proportion to the Head. They are set fairly high and wide against the head. When the dog is Interested, the ears should form a straight line with the top of the head. ---- Movement should be easy, smoothly powerful, by means of good propulsion of the hindquarter and parallel movement of the legs. In movement, a straight top-line should be maintained. --- The pelt is short, sleek and dense.
Colour are cream white, pale tawny, reddish brown, brown and all shades of brindle.
