WOW! all these great dogs... i have looked into owning boerboels, presa's, fila's and beucerons... I just love them. I did end up getting a cane corso who is everything i need for my life, accepting, but protective, obedient, low energy in the house, but could go all day with me.   My new pup ( bull mastiff / cane corso) sorta resembles a boerboel. 
Did you get your BB's in the US or did you import them in for SA?

I have an American Mastiff named Goliath. I guess they are pretty rare. He has turned into the best dog (personality) I have ever had, and also pretty big (33" at the shoulder and 150 pounds on his birthday .... 11/13/05).

 ;DProud Momma too.  I own 2 presas, Mosamo(fawn) & baby Grissum(brindle).  Mos(will be 3yrs in Aug) does NOT fit the breed standard.  he's very small...all of 71lbs.,has the temperment of a collie. he never barks @ strangers(he's never shown any signs of aggression-i wouldn't depend on him in a sticky situation), is great w/ other dogs(goes to daycare)not typical at all.
Now my g-man is everything a presa should be, he is still a pup yet(will be 1yr & 6mon. =22nd)he is maturing very nicely.  he loves all people, craves attention, is gentle w/ children.  in his home, he is very serious!!!!!!!!!  he welcomes those who i welcome...w/ licks ect...but if u shouldn't be here he will let u know it!!! as on the streets as well, he has shown me already that NO-ONE will ever hurt his mom!!!!!!  although he's grown up @ daycare he has become very dog aggressive w/ males(unaltered-some altered) so he's been exiled from daycare :-[  he reminds me of scooby doo but w/ a serious side. u must show them who is the alpha!!!!  "steel fist-velvet glove" owner a must.  w/ proper socialization & training they make an amazing companion/gaurdian...i will never be w/out one, or 2 ;)...Never 2 males again!!!!

I'm not sure how rare a neo mastiff is, but here are some photos I posted of Willow recently. I have to say she has been one of the awesomest dogs I have ever owned. I definitely could see myself getting another neo when I no longer have Willow.

Einstein is so rare, if it hadn't been for this website, we'd still be thinking he's a pyr-sheepdog mix. (Thanks BabsT)

He's a South Russian Ovcharka (sheepdog).

My husband and I own a Rottfoundland too!  We have a female AKC rottweiler who mated with our bronze male AKC newfoundland and had a litter of 6 Rottfoundlands last month!  I'll post photos of the puppies soon!  :)
