    I have one. He is a big baby. Not very common breed around here. I had mine shipped from Ohio.

    Ours was imported from Baden Boerboels in South Africa, origional owners could no longer keep him and his Husky buddy so we took them in.

    He is just a joy to have around, hes smart and learning new things every day.[​IMG]

    This is Bigboy, he really impresses me with his watchdog instincts and he is really good with all the animals. He is a attention hog and loves anyone who comes over.[​IMG]

    Yes, I just got a boerboel pup last month. I love him! Very smart, easy to train, loveable, clumsy, etc. [​IMG] I picked him up on May 16th and as of June 19th (tomorrow), he'll be 13 weeks old. He has doubled in weight, grown 3' taller, and 3" longer in the 5 weeks that we've had him.

    Solomon at 8 weeks old:

    And at 12 1/2 weeks:

    We are so pleased with him that we plan to get another one!

    Steelefarms: what's his name/weight?
    Bigboy is aptly named! How much does he weigh?
    I can't wait to see how big our guy gets. His mother weighs 155# and dad weighs 175#.
