VetStreet.com: 14 Dog Breeds You've Never Heard Of (but Will Soon)

Boerboel

Weighing in at 145 to 155 lbs., the Boerboel is one of the most athletic breeds in the mastiff category. This is a very dominant dog, so the breed is best for people who have large-dog experience. In her homeland of South Africa, the Boerboel worked as a farm dog, aggressively guarding her land, herd and human family. The breed arrived in the United States in the early 1980s. With her short wash-and-wear coat, the Boerboel requires only basic grooming. Due to her guard dog instincts, it's critical that these canines are introduced to new sights, sounds, people and situations as early and as often as possible.
