We have been notified about a 4-year-old neutered male Boerboel named Max that is in search of a new home. He is currently located in Georgia with his original owners who have had him since he was 8 weeks old. They purchased him from a breeder in South Carolina. They are moving soon and travel frequently and feel it will be best if they can find Max a new loving home.
Max has never shown the slightest aggression to goats, cats or other dogs. He has no known health problems and is an indoor dog. If you think you have room in your heart and home for a Boerboel like Max, respond to this post and I will have the owner get in touch with you.
Thank you for considering adoption!
Good news! Kiko, the red male that was an owner turn-in to a shelter in New Jersey, has been adopted. My hat is off to Rescue Ridge that had faith in this boy, pulled him and worked hard to find him a loving home.
I am happy to announce that Milo, the 2-year-old male in TX, was adopted today. Woo Hoo! He will be living in TX on a ranch with another female Boerboel of the same age. His new owner will be taking him hiking which will help to burn off some of his energy.
Thank you to everyone who responded with interest, and who helped find this young boy a loving home.
This 2-year-old fawn male Boerboel is in need of a new home. Due to personal circumstances, his owner can no longer keep him. The dog is located in TX, so keep that in mind if you are interested.
He is up-to-date on all shots and good with kids. He has a higher than average prey drive, but he is slightly food aggressive. Anyone interested should be extremely familiar with dominant dogs.
This is all I know about him right now, but I will post additional information. If you think you might be interested, post a message to this blog and I will get back to you.
I wanted to post a quick update that the sweet female Boerboel has been placed. She is living with a retired woman that lives alone, with a Chihuahua and a cat. The woman recently moved from an apartment to a single family home, and thought she would feel safer with a large dog for protection. Her son owns 3 Boerboels, and was looking for a mature dog for his Mom. This sweet girl was gentle with the cat and the Chi when they first met, plus she adores the grandchildren when they visit! She has a nice fenced-in backyard where she can relax and enjoy the sun.
Relaxing at the new home
This was probably the sweetest Boerboel we have placed to date! She stayed with me for a while, and she was just such a sweet girl and very easy to handle and live with. I just loved her, but she will be happier to live with someone who can give her undivided attention. Her new Mom is retired and home most of the day. Plus they live very close to me so I can visit. This could not have worked out any more perfectly. I love happy endings!
Update July 10, 2014: This sweet girl has been adopted. She is now living with a retired woman, a Chihuahua and a cat. She has her own fenced-in backyard where she can relax and enjoy the sun, plus she gets attention from the grandkids when they come by to visit. I am so happy for this lovely lady! Her owner is watching over her from heaven. :)
This sweet girl’s owner passed away last week and is now looking for a new family where she can share her love. Her owner was deeply committed to her baby girl, and made sure that she would be taken care of after she passed. The time has come, and we are now at the crossroad where we need to find her a new home.
Zene is tall and stocky, and is a striking red/fawn color. She grew up with cats and is very good with them. She is friendly with people. She is a very large girl weighing in at over 170 pounds (maybe more). We will try to take a few pounds off of her while she is in foster care, but she will always be a big girl. While her owner was in hospice care, the caretakers fed her well and lavished her with treats. She is housebroken and can be trusted with free roam of the house when alone. She is easy to handle, and seems to take things in stride. She sleeps quietly most of the day. She is crate trained, but she can be trusted outside of her crate. She rides well in the car, finding a comfy place to nap and will ride very quietly.
If you think you have room in your heart to give this girl a new family that she can call her own, please contact us. She is a very special girl, and we will take care to make sure that her new family is the perfect home for her. I will be posting photos soon. She is currently living in Pennsylvania.
Update July 15, 2014: Kinetic has been adopted and Sophia has been pulled by a Rescue in TX. Both are safe! :)
I was notified about two Boerboels that are in a shelter in Austin, TX. They are both available for adoption. If you think you might be interested in either of them, please follow the links and contact the shelter. There are photos of each dog on the links.

As of June 29, 2014, they are located at Austin Animal Center and still available for rescue. Based on their intake ID’s, it appears as though these two Boerboels came in together. Please consider opening your heart to adoption. These are two very nice looking adult dogs.
