What organization do you foster for? We thought about doing that but it seems all the rescue organizations are in larger cities and/or more populated areas. We're in the boonies (yay!) but that makes the logistics a challenge. I'm watching a lot of the rescues for a dog, but so far nothing has shown up anywhere within driving distance, except for one in Colorado. And that rescue seems to be much more interested in its own procedures than in helping the dogs. I contacted them about a female Bb they listed and all they would say is 'fill out an application' (which I did), then it was like 'we'll find a dog for you sometime'. Nope, bad attitude.
Oh, and yes, we've basically given up on getting people to understand when we say 'Boerboel'. Now its' just 'South African Mastiff'. Then we're pleasantly surprised when someone says "Oh, a Boerboel!!"
