Brutus My Big Bad Boerboel

By

Utah, United States

My boerboel is very reliable, intelligent and obedient but we didn’t get there overnight.

This breed of dog needs a dominant owner, someone to lay down the law and enforce it. My dog is big but contrary to the impression most people would form judging by its size, it’s actually very agile.

Brutus is very playful around the family but quite aggressive and won’t let a stranger anywhere close. Definitely not a friendly breed unless you’re an insider.

On the whole, it has very good guard-dog instincts.
