Hello and welcome to Proffers’ Kennel. Congratulations on your choice of Boerboel sites as Randy is one of the initial 3 Boerboel Breeders in the United States. With over 16 years experience and breeding stock originally hand selected by Randy during two separate visits to South Africa, Randy has been told by National and International Appraisers alike that his kennels are outstanding and are in fact, one of the finest in the world. He has also been Featured Boerboel Breeder in Dog World USA magazine.
Throughout the years, Proffers’ Kennel has repeatedly produced some of the finest and highest scoring Boerboels in the world; including this years North American Boerboel Breeders Associations (NABBA) May 2014 highest scoring male at the Collinsville Appraisal; our handsome Tovic Basie scoring a remarkable 92.5%, our mighty beast the remarkable Proffers Rogue scoring 94% and introducing the son of Rogue; Proffers Bodacious who scored an astonishing 90.4% at only 15 mos old! We are equally excited to have added Allens Virginia Radiant Raven @ 94.7% and Spitsvuur Maja @ 90.4%
Proffers' Kennel has historically produced some of the highest scoring Boerboels in the world; Proffers Kunta, Proffers' Black Star and Proffers' Diamond as well K-Hubs, Mack. K-Hub produced Mack from Proffer’s Dharma and Proffers’ Murphy. The pedigrees coming from this kennel are truly impressive and have earned Randy the reputation of "The Breeders' breeder." You would be hard-pressed to find a Boerboel breeder in the United States that doesn't show a Proffer dog in its' pedigrees.
We have seen many breeders come and go through the years, yet Randy remains; NOT because he out sells, but because of his true love of the breed, his impeccable reputation for standing behind his dogs, and because of his valued repeat customers. You simply can't be a successful breeder for this many years without being known for quality dogs and the highest standard of ethics. Our dogs are socialized from birth and we're very proud to say that many of our "Proffer Puppies" have gone on to provide amazing contributions to society:
- Working in Special Needs Classrooms
- Working at one of the largest Pediatrics Radiation Oncology Hospitals in the United States
- Working as a Service Dog to a child with Autism
- Trained/certified as a Service Dog to detect blood sugar spikes and lows in Diabetes
- Working as Therapy Dogs in Hospitals, Nursing Homes and Residential Care Facilities
The list goes on and on. We believe that trainability begins at birth. Our breeding dogs are not referred to as such; but each one is a much loved part of our family & THAT is the very heart of Proffers' Kennel.
As you go through the many pages on our site, you will notice Randy makes his home phone number available repeatedly to ANYONE whether it be to inquire about a puppy, to research the breed, for information regarding the Boerboel Appraisal System, or any other Boerboel related issue. Randy much prefers personal conversation verses the impersonal communication of email. So we encourage you to feel free to call:
Randy is once again in the early planning stages of another trip over where he will once again begin personally selecting new lines to add into his kennel. It's an exciting time for us as we prepare to enlarge.
I tease Randy alot, because whether he is building a barn, our beautiful multi-tiered deck or breeding his Boerboels, he always insists that is be "Top of the Line" so you can be assured that with Randy "Quality most certainly does come first!"
So, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy the “tour”. It is our sincere hope that when you have finished reading all the information we have provided, you will agree Randy’s vast knowledge and many years of experience truly makes Proffers’ Kennel the kennel
“Where Quality Comes First.”
We suggest you begin by reading some of our Customer Testimonials below; as they are people just like you who at one time were merely researching the breed and breeders. While we thanked them at the time they sent these in, we want to take this opportunity to thank them all again for without our customers, our kennel would not exist!
"I purchased a female boerboel from Robin & Randy. I have owned a boerboel before and was looking for a particular type and personality. I did an enormous amount of research before deciding on Proffers' Kennel. I called and talked with Randy and found him to be extremely knowledgable about the breed and very dedicated to the quality, temperment and consistancy of his dogs. He was a wealth of information and gave it freely. He was also quite entertaining with his many stories of dogs and Africa. I described the type and temperment of the dog I was looking for and sent pictures of my previous boerboel. Altho I waited thru two litters, he finally picked my puppy. Then Robin stepped in and kept me updated on her progress with pictures and information. Many phone calls were exchanged; it was a fun wait. My puppy arrived in very good health. I waited 3 weeks before writing this testimonial to see what kind of pup I really had. Randy and Robin couldn't have made a better match and I couldn't be more pleased! It was a lovely experience and I highly recommend Proffers' Kennel."

"After a great deal of research on different breeders of the South African Boerboel, we found thatProffers' Kennel in Marble Hill, MO was the right choice for us. Both Randy and Robin take great pride in the puppies their dogs produce. In January 2012, Bodie joined our family and has grown into a magnificent male. He is one of the smartest yet funniest dogs we have ever had, not to mention an outstanding protector. Bodie comes from Proffer Sassy and Tovic Basie. We have been so impressed with him that our second puppy, Diamond Lily is soon to arrive. Lily comes from Allens Raven and Proffer Rogue. We have always been appreciative for the loyalty and respect received from Randy & Robin. Following our ownership of Bodie and now Lily, the Proffers have become long distance friends.
Thank you both for giving us a wonderful experience in owning a South African Boerboel!

"I want to thank Randy and Robin for helping me land my bI called and talked to Randy boy "Judge". I have been talking to Randy for years. During all those conversations Randy was patient and informative and some of our conversations lasted nearly an hour!
Needless to say, "Judge" is healthy and just what Randy told me he would be. Proffers' is a first class operation and I look forward to doing more with them in the future."
M. Williams; Louisiana
"Our experience with Proffers' Kennel began with a very detailed and thorough description of the Boerboel breed by Randy. We decided on the piebald male named Enoch. After driving 10 hours, we were amazed at the sheer quality and craftsmanship of the kennels. We were given a lengthy tour of the grounds and were able to view all the Boerboels on site. The ease of getting our new puppy was wonderful!
Since returning home, we have received numerous calls from Randy regarding the well-being and status of our boy. We are very, very pleased with the quality of our puppy and how he is growing at a fantastic rate.
Proffers' Kennel is one for the record books and I would definitely recommend them to anyone interested in getting a high quality and awesome specimen of the Boerboel breed.
Thanks Randy and Proffers' Kennel for your dedication, hard work and preservation of this magnificent breed."
S. Fontaine; Louisiana
"I'd like to start by saying I'm 64 years old and have had dogs of different breeds most all my life. In all those years I have NEVER seen an operation as professional as Proffers'. From my very first call to the moment I stepped out his door to an immediate overview of his kennels, it is simply quality unsurpassed.
I'm glad to pass on a little of the 64 years "young" wisdom to anyone interested in Boerboels; call all the breeders you want THEN call Proffers'. The difference speaks for itself."

"We purchased out first Boerboel puppy from Proffers' Kennel in June of 2007. The process of purchasing Andre was very professional and thorough. Randy interviewed us about our past history of dog ownership to ensure that we had experience with headstrong breeds. Randy impressed us with his love of his dogs, he invested considerable time and several phone conversations to be sure we could give his dog the type of home he wanted for it.
The transfer of ownership was handled completely by Proffers' Kennel; they set up all the air transportation arrangements necessary for receipt of our puppy. Over the last three years we have driven Randy nuts with questions about Boerboel ownership and training. With the patience of a saint, Randy has coached us through our first Boerboel "experience" so thoroughly that in May of 2010 we adopted a second Boerboel puppy from his kennel.
We can recommend Proffers' Kennel with the highest of confidence. Their professionalism, depth of knowledge and support is beyond compare! We have dealt with various breeders over the years, but our experience with Proffers' is in another league altogether. We consider Randy Proffers to be a "Breeders Breeder."

"I would first like to thank you for all your help (and availability) with our purchase of Leeloo. This is my first experience buying from a breeder, and Zach and I's first experience with a Boerboel (we have adopted all of our dogs previously). You have set the bar very high! I hope that other people have this good of an experience when buying their puppies.
Thank you for letting Zach and I come see the kennel and your dogs first before we decided to buy her. This meant alot to us and really put us at ease knowing Leeloo was having such a great start to her life! All of my phone calls with questions before and after we picked her up were always returned in a very timely manner, and Lord knows I had a few! Thank you again!"

"I bought my first Boerboel pup in 2003 from a slick talkin breeder who convinced me his dogs were the biggest and best and heck, for "just a couple hundred dollars more I could even get the "Pick of the Litter"! Long story short; BIG MISTAKE! My pick of the litter had more problems than I can remember and my breeder? Well, while he was busy making my sale he took every call I made but once the puppy was with me, he was no longer "available to accept my call."
In 2007 I decided it was time to try again. This time I researched the breeders and am happy to say I went with Randy. My entire experience with Proffer has been a great one. My puppy arrived healthy and has grown into a magnificent male. But the thing I like most about Proffer is even 3 years after my purchase, when I call he always makes me feel like he is glad to hear from me. He's genuine! Randy has my utmost respect and I highly recommend his kennel to anyone considering a Boerboel."

"Randy is an honest and straightforward breeder to do business with, and the shipping of my puppy went very smoothly and in a timely manner. He arrived very healthy with his first round of shots, and a month supply of Heartgard (and Frontline). I couldn't be happier with my Boerboel puppy, and would do business with Proffers' Kennel again. Robin has also been of great assistance to me; always interested in how Bruiser is adjusting to his new environment and making sure everything is going well."
T. Ortiz; Colorado
"We have had the pleasure of receiving 3 loving dogs from Randy's Retired Dog Program. Frost (our favorite) Snow and Dillinger. All of these dogs blended into our family just as if they always belonged. Randy's training and diligent work with his dogs ensured the transition from his kennel to our home was an easy one."
