"I want to thank Randy and Robin for helping me land my boerboel. I called and talked to Randy about his 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.  Proffer's is a first class operation and I look forward to doing more with them in the future."

We love hearing from our clients about their experience and journey with their dogs. Do you have a story to share? Contact us today and let us know!



I searched for 4 years to find my boerboel. After looking through many websites and listening to high pressure salesmen try to convince me that their bloodline was the best and that as soon as I sent them a $500.00 non-refundable deposit, I could be in line for a great dog.  Luckily, I did not send them any money.  Luckily, I heard about Randy Proffer.  I went to his website and was amazed at the depth of his operation!  The pictures were awesome; I had to call and talk with Randy.  Randy took my very first phone call and we talked for nearly an hour.  He took every other phone call that I made and in fact, even called me from time to time,  This was truly a unique experience and one I highly recommend for anyone wanting to get a GREAT BOERBOEL FROM SOMEONE WHO CARES! 

I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your dedication to the Boerboel breed.  When it came time to pick up Bishop, we drove 10 hours to Marble Hill.  I was AMAZED at the entire operation.  From the front door to the very last kennel, the operation is spectacular!  You have taken breeding to the highest level and I am so thankful I found you and Bishop is the product of not only excellent breeding but love and dedication to the Boerboel breed.

Randy and Robin showed my son and I great friendship and love from the moment we walked into their home.  They love and dedication they have put into their operation shows in everything you see and touch; from the guided tour, the freshly mowed grass and beautiful scenery, you know immediately that you have made the right choice. 

Bishop is exceptional and I am proud to be his owner.  Randy took a lot of time to talk to me and carefully explained everything that I asked and gave me great advice on owning a Boerboel.

Proffers Kennel is the very best example of what you want and need in your breeder.  DO NOT accept anything less than a Proffer Boerboel.  Take the time to drive and see for yourself!  If you want the best quality Boerboel you can possibly find, drive to Marble Hill, Missouri and visit Randy and Robin Proffer....THE BEST BREEDERS IN THE BUSINESS!!!

I can't say enough about the Proffers.  You know from the moment you first talk to Randy and Robin that they not only know everything there is to know about the breed, but that they really love what they do.  I researched a number of breeders (and most of them were much closer to me) but after talking with Proffers a few times, I knew I would be getting my puppy from them.

The Proffers were attentive and genuinely caring about matching us with the right puppy.  They were equally concerned to make sure the puppy was matched to a responsible family.  They answered all of my questions and still do when I have them.  It's refreshing to see breeders that are so committed to their dogs and their customers.

Our puppy is incredible, as is the breed.  Our dog is supremely intelligent and very affectionate.  There is nothing our puppy would rather do than be cuddled up next to one of us and he is always in the same room as us.  Having said that, if anyone comes inside my home with ill intent, they're going to seriously regret it!  We all sleep better at night knowing that he is there.

Thank you Randy and Robin for giving us a wonderful dog.

S. Pavone; New York


After 3 long years of researching this breed (considering that we have never owned a Boerboel) we finally decided to request to be put on the list for a mating of Proffers Kennel.  Throughout the entire process, even before the puppies were born, Randy and Robin kept us entirely informed and supplied a great deal of educational literature and information for us to better familiarize ourselves with Boerboels before picking up our male.

We had the chance to visit the kennels and have never been so impressed at such a functional setup!  Being a NA Boxer breeder for years, I had many questions (I'm positive I asked more than anyone I know!) and both were happy with answering them all. 

The Proffers led us in the right direction and they are still here to guide us to this very day.  We could not be happier with our Hazina and even more so, with the rapport we have built with Randy and Robin.  When the time is right, we pray that Mr. P and Robin will choose us the most fitting female for our family as well.

We will never be able to thank you enough for allowing us to raise little Haze.

"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. Although I waited through 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 that Proffers' 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!

"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.

Proffer's 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 Proffer's 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."

J. Moody; California

"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 Proffer's 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'."

R. Bobrowicz; Arizona

"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 my 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 a lot 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!"

M. Myer; Tennessee

"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."

A. Muldock; Georgia

"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 Proffer's 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."

H. Bowen; Missouri

My wife and I could not be happier with the Boerboel puppy that we got from Randy and Robin.  I could tell how passionate Randy is for the breed from the first time we spoke on the phone.  He was always willing to take our calls and answer any questions we had, he even made tome for us to come and visit his facility and spent a good part of his Saturday afternoon giving us a tour and chatting about his experiences with Boerboels.

Their facility is top notch and definitely worth a visit!  His dogs are all very happy, healthy, had impressive pedigrees and were obviously very well cared for.  It was especially nice to get to see and meet the parents of our puppy before we Randy and Robin did a great job keeping us up to date on our puppy;s development.  We got weekly updates complete with pictures and they were very helpful in making sure we had everything we needed so the puppy's transition to our home wouold be as smooth as possible. 

When the day came to take our puppy home, Randy and Robin again made time for us!  They had prepared a wonderful welcome packet for us and she and Randy explained in great detail everything we needed to know about our puppy's development.

Now we are the proud owners of a beautiful Boerboel male and could not be happier with the help and support we have received.  I strongly recommend that anybody who is interested in this breed consider choosing Randy and Proffer's Kennel as their breeder.

We recently had the pleasure of purchasing a Boerboel puppy from Randy and Robn Proffer of Proffer's Kennel in May, 2019.  We had picked the name Beauty before actually meeting our puppy; and not only did the name fit but it was clearly a match made from heaven.

Randy and Robin love their dogs tremendously and are clearly experts on the African Mastiff breed.  It was well worth the trip from Arizona to pick up our puppy from the Proffers'.  Randy gave us a tour and it was a blessing to see and meet all their incredible dogs.

I was invited to the Proffer's home and kennels in November of 2018.  Randy and Robin are absolutely amazing and wonderful!  We were welcomed into their home and felt like we belonged.  I am honored to consider them family now.  Their knowledge and love of the breed could not be greater.  They are open to all your questions and concerns and give you direct and honest answers.  They love sharing their stories about themselves and the breed.  Getting to know you helps them decide if and which of their precious pups will fit into your family.  You become family when you are chosen to adopt one of their fur-babies.  We couldn't be more honored to be part of that family.

M. Rodriguez; California

Well, let me start off by saying this, my first experience with the South African Boerboel was great when I met Randy and Robin.  They made me truly understand what was expected for me to own and care for this breed.  I can go on and on about the Proffers'.  

If you are willing to wait on the waiting list for your time to come, you won't regret it.  Every time you call to keep your place in line, they make you feel like you are part of their family.  I can't wait until the next time I make that drive to get my newest little fur baby.

D. Cooper; Ohio

I studied the Boerboel breed for 4 years before calling the 1sr breeder on my list of breeders I thought were "reputable."  After many phone calls and disappointing conversations, I finally got to Proffer's Kennel on my list.  He was the last breeder I contacted from that list and I have zero insecurities about it! As a returning client and someone who has been in the animal, pet and competition industry nearly all my life, I can honestly say that Randy and Robin are about as experienced transparent and honest as you will find.

Randy not only made time for all my questions, he grilled me for two hours.  It was the best interview process I've ever been a part of while inquiring in the purchase of ANY animal!  He genuinely cares about where his pups end up and how they are raised.  Randy does all he can to ensure each puppy and their new home have successful futures while representing the breed and the Proffer brand. 

I can't emphasize enough the level of standard Randy and Robin hold themselves to; from their dogs, their facility, customer service, inspections and prompt communications,to accurate and timely paperwork submissions.  When you purchase o Proffer puppy, you don't just purchase a quality animal who's start at life is above and beyond the industry standard of minimum care, but you earn the pleasure and honor to be part of the Proffer family.

A Romero; California

When I first learned of the Boerboel breed I immediately fell in love with them.  I contacted several breeders before Proffer's Kennel; I made no decision until I had spoke with all within my driving radius.  Honestly, first time speaking with Mr. Proffer I grew frustrated.  He kept asking me questions that I didn't believe was necessary.  The questions were that of how many kids do you have? What are their ages?  Where do you live?  Why do you want this breed?  He drilled me for more than 45 minutes.  After speaking with others, I realized that none of them had asked me any questions!  They were only interested in a down payment, which Proffer never asked about.

Proffer's Kennel is only interested in keeping the integrity and safety of both the breed and the buyer.  They're first class people and own a first class kennel.  I'm proud of the puppy I got from them last May (2018) and am looking forward to doing business with them again in the future.  Proffer's Kennel, I applaud the effort you put forward in satisfying the customer and the breed.

Take care and hope to see you soon!

After reading other peoples reviews on google and their website, it's hard to come up with something that hasn't already been said about how wonderful Randy and Robin are and how great their kennel and dogs are. 

About 7 years ago we lost our Bull Mastiff to cancer.  I began looking for another dog and by accident stumbled onto the Boerboel breed.  After reading everything I could find about the breed, I began contacting breeders.  All of the breeders I contacted up until Randy wanted my money first for a deposit and then told us to wait and if they didn't get the color or sex of the puppy I was looking for I would have to wait and they would keep the deposit until then.  After contacting abut a dozen breeders, I called Proffers'.  On the first call Randy talked to me for an hour.  I could tell in that first conversation he was a genuine person and truly cared about his dogs and wouldn't let one go to just anyone.  He asked about our home, our yard, the ages of our children and my experience with large breed dogs.  The thing that really stuck out on that first conversation is that he asked me when doing my research, to ask other breeders if they are licensed/registered with their state and that was something no-one had mentioned to me before.  Needless to say, I was impressed!  From that point on, I knew I wanted a Proffer pup.  When I asked about putting a deposit down, he told me no!!!  He told me if I wanted one of his dogs, to call on specific dates for a litter that was due.  I waited and made my calls, I think it's his way knowing I wanted one of his pups.

Throughout the entire process and until we got our boy, Randy and Robin sent us pictures as he was developing.  All along the way whenever we had a question and called, they have always taken our calls and been extremely helpful and the conversations are never rushed.  Over the years Randy and Robin have been like an extended family.  We've sent them pictures of our boy Cain growing up and can say he is the best dog I/we have ever had.

If you want a quality puppy and have the patience to wait, then I encourage everyone reading this, they will not be sorry for going with a Proffer's Kennel puppy.  Randy and Robin are wonderful people and I recommend them and their kennel 100%.

J. Snyder; Phoenix, AZ

I discussed with Randy what it was I was looking for in a Boerboel and he delivered 100%.  Randy and Robin were very accommodating throughout the entire process and made themselves available for questions.  I received pics of my daughter (puppy) every week as well as discussed the puppy's progress on a weekly basis.

I received a detailed information pack to ready before my puppy even arrived and after receiving the packet and the puppy, they were still available for any questions that I had regarding the puppy or to discuss the breed.  I was invited to visit the kennel and again they were very accommodating, with me traveling from PA.  They continue to make themselves available for question or discussion 4 years later.

I am very pleased with my dog and recommend that you look at Proffer's Kennel before purchasing a Boerboel from another breeder...A1 quality and service!!!!

G. Gilcrest; Bloomsburg, PA

It's hard for me to add anything new to what's already been said.  Randy and Robin are the most amazing breeders in this Boerboel world.  Their dedication, knowledge of the breed and integrity are unsurpassed.  My first call to Randy lasted an hour and a half and I was so impressed with his obvious love for the breed and the impeccable standards that he holds his kennels to.  He holds potential adoptees to the same high standards.  I appreciated the thoroughness of his questions to my qualifications as an owner.  We asked each other a hundred questions and his patience with me was commendable.  I knew it would be a long process before we received our pip and over many phone calls I received many suggestions and valuable education.  When our pup was chosen for us, Robin kept us updated weekly with photos and all the information we could possibly need to welcome our boy home. 

We could not be happier with our boy, Bosco.  He's an amazing dog, happy, healthy and a wonderful example of the breed.  We still send photos and check in and after four years if we have a question, we are still welcomed as if we were family. Robin will always be Bosco's "Missouri Mommy."  If you are looking for a quality Boerboel, do your research, call around, then call Randy Proffer; you won't have to go any further!

S. & J. Hageman; Las Vegas, NV

I have studied the Boerboel breed for over 19 years & Proffer's Kennel has always been the gold standard for Boerboel breeders.  Randy is one of the original Boerboel breeders in the united States with a vast breed knowledge and very honest business practices.  Randy and Robin are wonderful people that care about the betterment of the breed and not just making a quick buck.  We received a high quality, healthy dog from Proffer's Kennel.  Randy ALWAYS makes himself available to take our calls to help woith breed questions (even 2 years after we purchased the dog).

One cannot go wrong getting a Boerboel from Proffer's Kennel; they are simply the best!
