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.

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. If you think you might be interested in providing a lifetime home for Maximo, please complete the Contact Form below and the owner will get back to you with additional information.

King Kong

Update July 2016:  King Kong is no longer available for adoption.  Thank you to everyone who inquired about him, and thank you for considering adoption!


King Kong is a pedigreed male Boerboel that is looking for a new home.  He is currently located in Wisconsin.  He is a great dog, but his owner has made the difficult decision to re-home him because of a move and change in lifestyle.  He is 3 years old, and he has been neutered.  He was purchased as a puppy from a well known breeder.  He has had some obedience training and has worked with a trainer.

King Kong will do best in an adult home.  He is protective and territorial, and leery of strangers.  He is good with the owner’s female Rottweiler, but he has not been tested with other dogs or cats.  He has a protective nature, so we do not recommend a home with children as he has never lived with children.  He will be a great companion and home guardian in the right hands.  He is a very loving boy with his family.

Update (July 17, 2016):  Baloo has been adopted   Woo Hoo!


Baloo is an adoptable Boerboel in MD.  This is a courtesy cross post, but I love the look of this boy!  I like his nice square sit (not slumped over in a lazy sit), and the focus in his eyes.  He looks like he might be a good candidate for further training and work.


If you think you might be able to bring Baloo into your home, please contact the shelter directly.  Baloo is located at the SPCA of Anne Arundel County in Annapolis, MD.

Update (July 17, 2016):  Baloo has been adopted.

She is a loving and loyal companion.  She will do best if she is the only dog in the house, and all she wants is to be with someone.  She loves to play in the yard and chase a tennis ball!

Here is what a shelter volunteer at King George Animal Rescue has to say about Killian:

“Hello, I’m a member of the King George Animal Rescue League in King George VA and I help to get the dogs at the King George Shelter out to rescues since it’s a kill shelter. There’s currently a Boerboel that was surrendered last week. He’s 6 years old, tested fine with dogs and lived with kids and other dogs before. He got surrendered for eating the owners two cats 😕 so therefore absolutely no cats for him. He’s a very friendly and goofy boy. He definitely acts a lot younger than he is. His name is Killian and he’s 130 lbs. Please let me know if you guys would be able to help this sweet guy. We can get all of his vaccinations and will arrange transport if anyone is found that’s interested.”

This is a courtesy cross-post, so please contact King George Animal Control directly if you think you might be interested in adopting this beautiful boy.
