Xavi

Xavi is an 18-month-old neutered male Boerboel available for adoption in California just north of Sacramento.  His owner has had to make the difficult to rehome this boy.  Xavi was imported from South Africa as a puppy, and is a beautiful, loving boy.

Xavi-Boerboel-Rescue-Oroville-CA-Jan-2016-1-cr

His owner has described Xavi as “the most loving dog I have ever met.”  He loves his family, but he does not get along with other males of his size.  Females have not been an issue.  Like many dominant males, Xavi is territorial.  He will defend his territory if other male dogs intrude.

Xavi-Boerboel-Rescue-Oroville-CA-Jan-2016-2-cr Xavi-Boerboel-Rescue-Oroville-CA-Jan-2016-3

Xavi will do best in a home with a strong owner and no other large male dogs.  He has not done any damage to people or dogs, but he will need to go to a home without other male dogs.  Xavi likes cats, but he will be protective if he thinks another dog is trying to hurt one of the cats.

If you think you might be interested in adopting Xavi or hearing more about him, please complete the following Contact Form and someone will get back to you.  Xavi is an owner surrender.  His owner will be able to tell you everything you need to know about Xavi in order to make an informed decision.  Potential adopters will be screened so we can make sure that Xavi can go to a lifetime home where he will thrive.

Zuri has a New Home!

Zuri has been adopted by a family in Indiana.  I am so happy for her.  She moved from New Jersey to Indiana where she has some room to run.  Plus she has a new playmate named Crixus.  They are getting along great.

Here are some photos of Zuri in her new home with her new playmate.

Loki

Update January 24, 2016:  Loki has been adopted.  He is in a great home in CA where he will thrive.

********************************

Loki is a sweet dark brindle male Boerboel that is available for adoption in Southern CA.   Loki is only 13 months old, and will provide a lifetime of love!  He is good with people and other dogs.  He will be under further evaluation from his breeder, so information about Loki will get updated over the next several days.

Loki’s sire is Authentic Mizpah Odinson-Thor, and his dam is Big Bear Jade.  Loki is not registered, and will not come with registration papers.   He is about 27-28″ tall, and weighs around 140 pounds.  He still has some growing to do.

There is a small rehoming fee for Loki.  He is available for adoption in Big Bear, CA.  His owner will not ship him via air, so any potential adopters will have to meet him in person for pick-up or make other ground transportation arrangements for him.

Zuri

Update January 20, 2016:  Zuri has been adopted!  She is now living in Indiana where she has some room to run.  Plus she has another Boerboel to play with!  I am so happy for Zuri and her new family!

*************************

Zuri is a young, spayed female Boerboel available for adoption in New Jersey.  She turned 2 years old on September 29, 2015.  She is kid friendly and very loving.  Zuri was raised with a 4-year-old boy, and she has also lived with a Dogue de Bordeaux.  She is good with other dogs as long as they are not aggressive towards her.

Zuri - Boerboel Rescue NJ
Zuri is protective, but she is also a love bug!  She is spayed and up-to-date on shots.  Occasionally she gets a skin discoloration, but it is treated with melatonin and usually clears up in a few days.  Her owner has had her since she was 3 months old, but has made the difficult decision to re-home her due to working long hours.

Apa

Apa is a young, male brindle Boerboel imported from Tigerberg Boerboels in South Africa. His owner works long hours and travels for his job, so he has made the difficult decision to try to find a new home for his boy.  Apa is 3-1/2 years old and he has been neutered.  He is a great dog, but his owner feels he needs more attention and socialization.

Tigerberg Apa - Boerboel Rescue WI

Apa has been through obedience training.  He walks very well on leash and off.  He is completely house trained.  He is good around female dogs, but displays the typical dominant characteristics towards other male dogs.  Like most Boerboels, he is suspicious of strangers.  When meeting someone new, they should not give him too much attention or eye contact at first, until they earn his trust.    

Apa-Boerboel-Rescue-IMG_0928 Apa-Boerboel-Rescue-IMG_0995 Apa-Boerboel-Rescue-IMG_1181-lg
Apa will do best in a home that has dominant breed experience, and can continue his training and socialization.   

Apa is currently located in central Wisconsin with his owner.  If you think you might be interested in learning more about Apa, please complete the attached Contact Form and someone will get back to you.
