I recently wrote a book in honour of my beloved Boerboel and Cross Boerboel dogs. It is a book that highlights a series of events which transformed me from a girl who didn’t like dogs to a lady whose heart has been filled with unconditional love for them. It is an amazing story of love in its truest and most sincere form.
Boerboels are intelligent, self-assured dogs bred to have extremely
strong guarding instincts, and it is the only breed in the world bred
with only one purpose, to guard and protect his family. The book
highlights how cross breeding and inter breeding has led to many
Boerboels in South Africa becoming prone to getting elbow and hip
dysplasia. Three of my dogs were diagnosed with hip dysplasia with
two having been put to sleep as a result of this condition.
By writing this book I hope to create awareness in many ways. Firstly,
to let people know the love and joy that animals bring into our lives
and show them how rewarding it can be. Secondly, to raise awareness
about buying Boerboels from registered breeders and lastly, to put
more focus on the beautiful South African Boerboel itself, in an effort
to preserve the breed.
The book highlights love, loyalty, happiness, sadness and tells of my
experiences over the years with my 5 fur kids. This is a book that will
inspire people to never give up but to keep on trying.
