Statement on dog fighting and the slaughtering of dogs for human consumption

The South African Boerboel Breeders’ Society (SABBS) declares its unequivocal abhorrence of dog fighting, and the slaughtering of dogs for human consumption. SABBS is gravely concerned about incidences that have been brought to our attention via the social media and other concerned persons.

SABBS places a high premium on breeders’ commitment and responsibility to place dogs with committed and ethical owners. The Society urges members to ensure that all Boerboels will thrive in a protected and caring environment. Members are advised to not sell their Boerboels to countries where dog fighting and the slaughtering of dogs for human consumption are practised, and to make confirmed incidences of abuse publicly known.

SABBS reiterates that the exporting of Boerboels from South African as a SA land race must be strictly observed via the requirements of the Animal Improvement Act.
