The Boers' Mastiff --- The Farmers' Mastiff
I am fortunate to own two outstanding Boerboel Bitches, Kizzie and Asenka.
Litter Sisters out of Ravenswood Pinkerton (Shumba) and Gretchen Joice.
is an absolutely darling dog, and was awarded 100% on a temperament test, conducted by Boerboel International. She is the 2nd Highest SABT scoring bitch (87.4%) in some 10 years of SABT appraising dogs in the UK. Under SABT last year, she took Best Opposite Sex. She scored well under Boerboel International too, (83.5% for conformation) - which was Best In Show.
I did a tour of Belgium and Holland, visiting as many BB breeders as I could and elected the stunning Makosi Dico... (featured top and below) to put to Asenka. He was Best in Show at Rosmalin, Holland, in 2010 - scoring 86.5%, and also has a wonderful temperament, and good health stats.
Asenka was put to Dico on the 5th June, and again on 7th. I hope therfore to have some really awesome pups available early October. The pups were born on 6th August 2012.
is somewhat more reserved than her litter-sister, Asenka, and is more intense. She is a real power-house, and will run with me as I peddle a trike at an average speed of 12mph for 3 miles. Asenka does the distance if I slow it down to 8 mph.
I run them a few times a week - I have even taken Kizzie out twice a day at times; once on her own, at her pace, then again with Asenka at her pace, so Kizzie does 6 miles on them days.
Under SABT, Kizzie scored 85.5%, and therefore still in the top 5% of Bitches in the UK. Boerboel International awarded her 83% for conformation.
Both Girls are on the SABT Stud Register, having scored sufficiently well on thier health tests. They are HD and ED free, and free from entropion and ectropion. These tests were all conducted under BVA registered veternarians. They are also free of VP; this was tested following SABT rules and standards.
I run and maintain a pedigree database, and you can assist in this, in entering or supplying the detail required about your Boerboels - The effectiveness of this tool hinges on the amount of data, and the accuracy of such data. By supplying yours, and informing me of errors, you help yourself and others, but the overall winner is the Boerboel breed.
This is done in aid of the Boerboel, and the improvement of its health and welfare.
