Welcome to Southern Cross South African Boerboels. Located in Texas, we have been blessed to have had wonderful dogs over many years but have always been looking for that one breed with all of the characteristics that Man's best friend should have.
At Southern Cross Boerboels I believe that we have now found that perfect dog. Boerboels are sweet, loving, loyal, playful, smart, protective, powerful, strong, brave... and the list goes on. Our Ideal Dog.
Our objective with breeding Boerboels is to only use quality bloodlines for a well balanced dog. Our dogs are part of our family and interact with small children daily. We socialize our dogs at the dog park, and they are confident with their size, strength, and abilities, but are not bullies.
Our founding stock comes from a long history of champions listed on the SABT stud registry from quality South African breeders such as Piet-Zyn-Drift. All our dogs are registered with the South African Boerboel Breeders Association, which is the oldest and largest registry of South African Boerboel's in the world. The SABT is based in South Africa and have the highest standard for the breed. All of our breeding stock is SABT appraised and in great health.
Please explore our web site to learn more about our Boerboels, Boerboel puppies, our goals, and who we are.
With the wonderful dogs we have had the privilege of importing as the foundation of our breeding program, we feel quite fortunate and excited as to what the future holds for us and our Boerboels.
Boerboels are intelligent, reliable, and obedient, with a strong watchdog instinct. They are self-assured and fearless, but responsive to the needs of the family. The Boerboel was specifically bred to be protective without being aggressive. They are loving, playful, even-tempered, athletic and intelligent. At the same time, they have strong protective instincts. It is a unique combination which blends into an overall wonderful character. A Boerboel in your home instinctively becomes the family pet. They especially bond to children - usually deciding that the smallest child in the family is their own special personal responsibility, and is to be looked after under all circumstances. They become the child’s best friend, playmate, guardian, and companin. When a Boerboel is not actively playing with a child, you will find him in the yard "watching" over the children, ready to alarm and defend as needed. He feels the whole family belongs to him and his sole purpose is to protect them, with his life, if necessary.
