I have a 23 month old boerboel who is terrified of people, children, wind, trains, cars, garbarge trucks, other dogs, etc. I don't know why she has encounted these things before but you would never know it by her response. She has been nervous since I got her, when I picked her up from her breeder it appeared to me that she had never been out of a cardboard box area that was on a concrete slab. She completely went into herself when she was removed from her littermates and in my opinion she became a nervous, fearful dog. She has been exposed to other dogs (puppy socializing classes, doggie parks, the neighborhood, long walks, hikes, etc.) but she is not really that curious about them or things around her as it seems she just wants run from the sounds or to tear a dog up because she's afraid. I always get comments about how great she looks, or asked if it's ok to pet her, when she is approached she moves and hides behind me. What can I do?

She has been in 8 dog fights with 2 needing to be taken to the vet and each time she was the one who attacked first. I can't trust her and I don't like the fact that she's afraid of everything. Have you ever encountered such a dog and what did you do.

I would recommend taking her to Dee Blanco, a homeopathic vet in Santa Fe-- she's GREAT with animal behavioral issues. Give her a call and discuss the issue with her: 505 986 3434.

I was thinking about buying a Boerboel from them but not so sure now.
Did you contact breeder about this. If so, I am curious as to what they said.

I bought a boerboel from them last march and am really pleased my girl. She is smart, outgoing and great with other dogs. Alpine lion was great to deal with, they were attentive and patient. I even asked for a video and even though he didn't know how to send it to me, he worked on it til I had one. I would definitely get another dog from them.

I bought a dog from Patrick Hall, with Alpine Lion Boerboels recently. I was having the dog shipped to me, and Patrick was fine to deal with until I paid for the dog. He became very unprofessional and rude the moment he had my money. He took his time shipping me the dog. Patrick made him self clear when I asked when he would send the dog, he replied in a text, "I'll get to it when I can (or want)." I was not too happy with him and asked for a refund, so I could take my business elsewhere. He told me he would not be refunding me the $1000 "deposit" I placed on the pup. He stated in a text, "call a lawyer if you want to be a difficult ass!!" I eventually received the dog. She is wonderful and I can't say anything bad about his product, but as a business man and professional, I can say he is awful! I would never do business with him again, and would never recommend him to anyone.

I paid for a dog in full and was told that he had a heart issue and could not be sold. The process to find out was lengthy and Patrick told me several days later than discovered - just enough time for my check to clear. When I asked for a refund, he told me that $1, 000 of it was non-refundable. So, I chose another pup. It was sent by air at 7 weeks old and the shots were not only given too early, the proof/documentation showed that the vaccinations administered were expired. This cost me some extra money at the vet to make sure the shots took after the final round was given. I should have known better when I asked for references in my same state... he advised I would get them but he never came through. The dog is fine and healthy but the whole process was very stressful and I was given major attitude when I contacted him stating the pup had landed safely. VERY bad business, HORRIBLE service, and a HUGE ego - but so far the dog is healthy. Definitely would NOT purchase from him again
