i'm 75% sure that he's a Boerboel... the big, heavy-boned ones can reach over 160 lbs... he looks pretty fit and muscular to me! here are some more...

First I didnt think it was real until I saw the other pics. Thought it might be one of those fancy digicam tricks. Very cool dog though.


......the ads a joke right - please tell me the ads a joke. :eek: :D

I think perspective makes the dog look bigger here.. girl is leaning back and the dog is right in the camera lens...

regardless, a handsome boy!

it's like a furry rhinoceros, very stocky. probably a very expensive dog to maintain. handsome though.

Wow! That is one huge dog. That SA breed, Boerboel, certainly looks like it comes from Mastiff lines. What a beauty, though. Bet he drools alot.

It's definately a Bull Mastiff...A huge one.:eek:

I actually had a pic of a woman who has a Mastiff(Mastiffs and Bull Mastiffs look different)..This dog was a good 220+lbs and long.....Wish I still had the pic.

Why do I love the fact that one of the Boerboels is named "Steak"??? Too funny!

i've never seen or heard of a bullmastiff that big... holy cow! :eek: the standard says nothing of them being huge monsters like that :D anyways... i still think boerboels rock. kissing cousins, all these gorgeous mastiffy-type dogs!

I thought the same thing, a joke, so I downloaded and zoomed in. There aren't any distinct cropping edges and the shadows look good. Holy Mother of God! :eek:
