When it comes to other animals Boerboels do quite well. They are best with animals that they have been raised along and live in the same household with. South African mastiffs can be quite territorial and standoffish with unfamiliar dogs though. In the event, you should remain confident, and cautious and emit positive energy when introducing them. 

They can also become competitive and aggressive with other Boerboels of the same sex, so if you have multiple or friends with the same mastiff or one similar then keep a small eye on that as well. Early socialization is the most recommended method to help keep Boerboel’s instincts in check. If you feel like you have done all you can, but everything just isn’t working then unfortunately that particular South African Mastiff may be best suited to a home where they are the only dog.
