Update (11/2016):  This male is now with a Rescue in Texas.  Unfortunately I do not have any details on this.  Thank you for considering adoption.


This loving male Boerboel is located in Berkeley Springs, WV.  He was the victim of an abuse case, and he is now available for adoption to the right home.  He is sweet and loving, and craves attention.  He is dog selective, so will probably do best as the only dog in the family.  He can walk past dogs on leashes and past dogs in kennels and ignore them, but he does not tolerate dogs if he is off leash.

Phoenix is a 4-year-old Boerboel available for adoption through ABARS (American Bullmastiff Association Rescue Service).

Boerboel Rescue - Phoenix

Here is a brief story and bio about Phoenix’ from his rescuers at ABARS:

“Earlier this year, ABARS (American Bullmastiff Association Rescue Service) was contacted about a Bullmastiff who was in a bad situation. Wjen the volunteer arrived, she learned that he was a Boerboel, but the situation was dire and she couldn’t leave him. Since there was no Boerboel Rescue available, ABARS stepped up to help.

Sweet Phoenix is four years old. He is very good with other dogs, and loves people. Phoenix is extremely affectionate and eager to please! He is currently in training: learning sit, stay, and down and doing very well. Phoenix is fully vetted, crate trained and house trained. Because of his size and playfulness, we prefer to place him with older children, over 10.

Phoenix’ life prior to rescue was not easy. He is blind in his left eye and deaf in his left ear from being attacked as a puppy. He is heart worm positive and is doing very well with treatment.

Phoenix is a wonderful dog who deserves a wonderful home. If you think you might be right, please take a few minutes to complete the online adoption application at and contact Jacqueline at”

Zeus is a 3-year-old neutered male Boerboel that is available for adoption.  Zeus is great with members of people he considers family, but he can be reserved towards strangers.  He has lived with children, but we recommend an adult only home.

We are anxious to find him a new home as quickly as possible since his family is moving on August 26th.  Zeus is currently located in Tennessee.  If you think you might be able to open your heart and home for a new man in your life, please consider Zeus.  He will do great in a home with some property and a loving family that he can protect.

Zeus - Boerboel for Adoption - August 2016

Zeus is quite the looker.  We love his stunning eyes!  Instead of buying a Boerboel puppy for sale, please consider Zeus!  If you are interested in providing a lifetime home for Zeus, please complete the form below.  Thank you for considering adoption.

Here is what the shelter has to say about Bessie:

Hi there! I am with the Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne’s County in Maryland. We are the only open admission shelter in in the county. We had this sweet Boerboel brought in as a stray. She was extremely emaciated and was not claimed. We have put some weight on her and she is doing quite well now. She is AMAZING with people, including kids. With dogs, I would consider her to be selective. She does well with low key dogs but does not care for dogs who are too active or pushy. We would really like to get this sweet girl into either a home or a rescue. For more information, please contact Kirstyn at

Update August 26, 2016:  Maximo has been adopted!  Thank you to everyone who inquired about this cute boy.


Spitsvuur Maximo was imported to the US from South Africa. He is 14 months old, and his owner has made the difficult decision to re-home him. Maximo is currently living in New York City, and his owner feels his friend will be happier in a quiet country home where he can get more exercise and attention.


Maximo is friendly and loves kids. He is crate trained and up-to-date on vaccinations. Since he is still a pup, he will need continued obedience training to bring out the best in him. He is a good boy.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Maximo is friendly with other dogs, but some dogs are frightened of Maximo because of his size.  At only 14 months old, Maximo weighs 165 pounds. He is currently being treated for a skin condition which will improve with continued cleansing and bathing . The vet that has treated Maximo believes the skin condition is possibly caused by the stress of living in the city.

Maximo can be startled and frightened of sudden noises and rolling carts. For this reason, we believe a quiet country home will be better for him.
