Every once in a while the Agoura shelter gets an unusual breed, and Shawn fits this classification. She is a 6-year-old African Boerboel Mastiff.
She is a big, strong and intelligent working dog and is most impressive to look at. She is very playful, affectionate and sweet, well trained and demonstrates a great attitude. She also is very gentle and probably good with children she knows.
This breed has a unique combination of roughness and gentleness that can make them good family pets when they are treated properly. Generally, they are affectionate, playful, loyal, loving and confident with their families. However, this is a dominant breed. Boerboels have strong watch and guard dog instincts and are fearless and extremely protective of their people.
Shawn is probably okay with other dogs, cats and other non-canine pets but requires a knowledgeable owner. With the right human she should make a wonderful pet and companion.
To choose Shawn, request ID A4090586. The Agoura Shelter is at 29525 Agoura Road, Agoura Hills. Occasionally pets have already been adopted. To check availability, call 818-991-0071 or visit the .
