I have written about Crespo before – here and here. He is now 11 months old so I have received permission to post more photographs of him as he grows older. Crespo is out of Middelpos Oenno and Afrika Bella, and is owned by Dimitris Efthimiou of Boerboel Greece. He is brother to Cay-Cay and Cuba and was born on 7th August 2012 in Portugal. To me he looks just like a lion which is very apt because when I was little I was told exciting bedtime stories of Boerboels being lion dogs because they could take down a lion and also because there were tales of the first Boerboels being cross-bred with lions to create dogs with extreme strength and bravery. Apparently he has a wonderful temperament and good guarding instincts. It is going to be so exciting to see how he develops over the next year or two and I can’t wait to see what his puppies look like! Crespo means ‘harsh’ or ‘rough’ in Portuguese. Thank you Dimitris!
