It's a very american caracteristic if I may say so myself. I always thought one of the major strenght of your nation was that most people were willing to try pretty much anything once at some point in their lives (some old WASP-y rule, AFAIK).

This may be more relevant to California than the rest of the country.

I would be interested to know when was the last time you saw a Boerboel and why do you think it would be a compound dog and nott suitable for a working breed?

 

Also wanted to say hello to Jan, knew him during my Tosa years, my dog was Miko-- from Anna at Fire Mountain

Oh, hi, Les! Good to hear from you. You'd have to ask lefty about the Boerboel. I've only met a couple. Seemed like nice dogs but I was in no position to assess their working ability.

You were very into Bandogs for awhile, weren't you?

Any large rough dog will make a great compound animal - a Boerboel charging a fence is intimidating. The Boerboels that I saw were beautiful athletic dogs but lacked solid nerve in a man-pressure situation. That was sometime ago when they first arrived so they might have improved on this aspect somewhat.

 

Still, cool dog and you could do worse.

Bandog-- yes, matter of fact last time I saw you was with Donald when he stopped by your office with the bandog, we tried them for awhile and then went with the Americanbulldog, although I enjoy that breed we miss our Tosa and have been looking at getting back to Mastiff's, probably the Boerboel.
