South African Boerboel Rescue
All New Rescue Available Posted 7-12-13
We have a 5 year old Boerboel named Murdock that needs to be rescued. He is a nuetered purebreed, almost 120 lbs and a very good guard dog. I am asking for help not because I don't love him with all of my heart but because his quality of life is terrible.
As I said, Murdock is a great guard dog- unfortunately he is way overprotective of me and his yard and has broken through our chain link fence to get at a passer-by. Thankfully the man was not hurt (he jumped into his car) but it could have been a child! It is too much of a risk to have Murdock outside to play or to be off of his lead at all. This is very unfair for him. He loves to run & play & I am too scared to let him. Our house is too small to play inside- so he mopes. I am ruining his life. He needs to go to a family who has a yard (not with a side road next to it) so he can play.
Murdock has been through basic training (puppy kindergarten) and socialized. Then 3 years ago I got hurt. His behavior changed. He began to be overprotective of me. Not with everyone, but certain people set him off. We have tried behaviorists and trainers and none can figure out why these certain people set him off. It is impossible to tell when he will flip this switch. Inside he is fine, he actually thinks he is a lap dog! The only time he freaks is if the UPS guy or a stranger approaches the house. He is fine with the people he has known forever, new guests don't get to meet him because we lock him away for safety. Again, a quality of life issue.
I am 6 months pregnant and am only now starting to panic about how he will react with an infant...I am scared and desperate. I need help and I need it soon. This poor dog is depressed and its breaking my heart. Please advise me on what I can do. I have attached pictures as well.
We really appreciate your help.

His name is Maverick he is 11 months old and is in need of a good loving home like the one he has here with us. But it seems someone in our subdivision is off put by his size and feels the need to call the police and tell them they are scared of him instead of knocking on my door and ask to get to know him so they are not scared any more. They have now complained enough to classify him as a nuisance animal and I am worried the county will come and take him from us and do what ever is the cheapest to take care of the problem. The sad thing is he is a sweetheart and loves people and kids and all he wants to do is run, play eat and sleep (the good life ) he is potty trained working on the leash getting better every time but still a puppy and wants to smell everything. And the best part of his personality is that he just wants to be with you, if you want to kill a Sunday on the couch watching football there is no better friend to have sitting on the couch next to you. So if you are looking for a good family pet they broke the mold when the made him.
