Some imports were used in our breeding. However, after spending a small fortune with other breeders,and great training we were very fortunate to obtain great boerboels, which were bred selectively and in the right combinations to produce the wonderful boerboels pups that we have today. With a lot of hard work, lots of patience, lots of money, and some luck, we have now established the "Carolina bloodline"
Some write that the Ysterberg Mastiff is a Boerboel bloodline that existed in the early 1940s in South Africa. Bred by Klaas van Waveren before the Boerboel was officially recognized, the Ysterberg has been described the oldest living bloodline in Boerboel history.
Some sources indicate, however, that the Ysterberg Mastiff was part of the foundation stock of the Boerboel; in other words, a breed unto itself. When the first Boerboel organization was founded in 1983, Ysterberg dogs were included because their conformation fell within the parameters of what founders were looking for in the Boerboel.
In 2010, however, like-minded individuals came to realize that their vision for the Boerboel was very different from what Boerboel organizers had in mind. In order to protect Ysterberg bloodlines, these folks decided to resurrect the original Ysterberg type of the past by isolating those lines out of Boerboels, and the Ysterberg Mastiff Breed Council was formed. For the past decade, Ysterberg Mastiff bloodline breeders have adhered to a controlled program of the Council which makes a distinction between the Boerboel, South African Black Mastiff, Ysterberg Mastiff™ and South African Mastiff®.
