Letter From Rui Navarro


im Not the only one

Hello! I’m Rui Navarro, at the helm of Elite Boerboels, and I’m thrilled to welcome you. Located on our scenic farm near Lisbon, Portugal, our kennel is the heart where the magic happens, far surpassing the typical backyard breeding setup.

At Elite Boerboels, we’re a close-knit team deeply committed to refining and advancing the Boerboel breed. With a full staff and three specialized in-house trainers, we rigorously work our dogs daily. This dedication extends to our clients’ dogs as well, ensuring that we’re constantly improving the breed’s nerve strength and structural soundness, directly countering the concerning trend of deterioration.

Beyond our professional team, my wife, Sandra, is the cornerstone of client relations, ensuring that every interaction with us is second to none. Our daughters, aged 13 and a newborn of 2, play a vital role in socializing our dogs, familiarizing them with children and enriching their family adaptability.

We pride ourselves on not being just another kennel; we’re a super team devoted to producing the epitome of the South African Boerboel. Our dogs are the epitome of the breed’s esteemed characteristics—robust, majestic, and undaunted guardians capable of turning heads worldwide.

Choose the exceptional—opt for an Elite African Boerboel from our farm in Portugal, where passion, expertise, and familial warmth shape the future of this magnificent breed.
