"Our purebred Boerboel dog called Nahu—Nahu is a Maori name meaning protector (from New Zealand). Nahu was imported from South Africa at 8 weeks of age. He was 7 months old at the time of this picture and 120 pounds. He will grow to about 180-200 pounds based on the other males from the breeder who we bought him from. He is extremely affectionate and very protective of me and my husband. He’s wary of strangers but as soon as he knows that we’re comfortable with new people he’s OK with them, too…. He has a 6th sense and can tell if people are good or not. The breed seems to be very instinctive, picking up on owner’s feelings, if we’re nervous or wary of someone they are, too. We live in an apartment and he gets along really well with our two Burmese cats. We crate-trained him when he was young so he sleeps and eats in his crate, but the rest of the time he’s free in the home. He’s responding very well to dog training; he’s the best in his class. All he wants to do is be wherever we are, so he always sticks by our side when out walking. We feed him a totally raw food diet (i.e. raw turkey necks, whole raw chickens, raw steak, raw trout fish, pulped fruit and vegetables, almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, supplements like calcium, vitamin C, kelp, cod liver oil, flax seed oil, etc.) I’ve never seen a healthier dog and his recent blood tests came back better than perfect."
