I met up with some friends at a local pub the other day. When I arrived they were all talking about a huge Mastiff that was under one of the tables. I could not see much apart from the fact that it was a huge dog and so very well behaved.
Later, the owner went outside to take his dog for a little walk. As he walked past me I saw that the dog was a Boerboel. People around us formed a crowd to look at this doggo because he was so big and so beautiful. I began talking to the owner who said that not one person had ever recognised the breed of his dog or heard of a Boerboel.
What a beautifully well-behaved well-socialised dog. There were people all around and a great deal of noise, and yet this gorgeous dog was calm, happy, well trained, and well-socialised. I got his name but I have forgotten it. He is a son of Gretchen Liddie and I think he is about 7 or 8 years old. He is in beautiful shape and (after seeing that I was okay with his owner) he let me pet and cuddle him.
