Boerboel Mastiff : : Male
Ben is a beautiful, goofy, 2.5 year old African Boerboel who would love to share his home with another large dog and someone who is home with him most of the day. He loves to play and due to his size and strength putting him with another small dog is not recommended.
Likes: Being outdoors, playing with his foster siblings, ear rubs, being close to his person.
Dislikes: Crates, sudden loud noises, quick movements.
Personality: Sweet and lovable!
Temperament: Will bark when someone comes to the house but settles down quickly. His bark is very intimidating but he does not have a mean bone in his body. Not dominant, very submissive.
Energy Level: Moderately Active
Favorite activities: Playing ball, running in the back yard, hanging out with his person. He will be your shadow so if you are not looking for a dog to be with you 24/7 he may not be the right dog for you.
Good with: Dogs, cats, children over 6.
Not good with: Crates, although he is crate trained. He will go in a crate but will bark and let you know he is not happy.
Housetrained: Mostly. You must let Ben pee 3 or 4 times when he is outside to empty his bladder. If you let him in to soon he will have an accident in the house.
Challenges. Due to Ben’s size and his strength a heavy duty crate would be recommended for him. He has broken out of 3 wire crates. He needs to be exercised a few times a day or he gets really rammy in the house. Just letting him run around the back yard for 15 minutes each time would be sufficient. A home where someone would be home most of the day would be best for him. Crating him 8 hours a day is just too much.
Medical Issues: None
What would be the best kind of home: Ben will require a fenced in yard with another large dog to play with. Someone that will give him the time and patience he needs adjusting to a new home.
