Welcome to Amayirha boerboels where our vision is to provide high quality boerboels into any home and studs. Our breeding standard and goals is to become one of the best in the world if not the best.
History of Boerboels
Boerboels originate from South Africa and they appeared for the first time during the 1600s. Boers bred them to protect the homestead and to act as watchdogs and working farm dogs. However, before them, they mainly used Mastiff-type dogs and Hounds for this purpose. Jan van Riebeeck arrived in South Africa in 1652 to establish a trading post, as commanded by the Dutch East India Company. He became an important character because he was the one to found Cape Town. However, he is even more important for our guide because he brought with him a Bullenbitjer, which was a gigantic Mastiff-type dog, which is considered as the ancestor of the Boerboel because it mated with native dogs (Africanis).
Our Boerboels nutrition
It is important to keep your boerboel puppy lean and on the right track. We are not opposed to raw feeding, however that is not something we have a bunch of knowledge on. It is important to pay attention to the Protein, Calcium, and Phosphorous with the Protein being 1st on the priority list. We recommend large breed dog high-quality grain free kibles at all times with at least a minimum of 26% Protein.
