Nelson is 2 ½ years old and was born in South Africa. He is a Boerboel (¾) crossed with a St. Bernard (¼). He now lives in the Netherlands. He loves to sleep and drools a lot!
The Boerboel Bernard is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Saint Bernard and the Boerboel. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
Nelson is so BIG he takes up the whole couch! He now weighs about 143 pounds (65 kg), his height is 29 inches (74 cm) at the shoulder and is 3' 3" (1 m) long from nose to tail!
