Dog Breed Information - Bullmastiff

This powerful animal, shows great strength, endurance, and alertness; well built but active. The foundation breeding was 60% Mastiff and 40% Bulldog. The breed was developed in England by gamekeepers for protection against poachers. Maintaining such traits as alertness, wariness of strangers, strength, and agility, the Bullmastiff needs a firm loving home and is not a dog for the fragile or timid.

The known history of the Bullmastiff begins about the year 1860 in England. It is probable that the story of the breed is really centuries old, but proof is difficult. The Bullmastiff was bred to be a gamekeeper's guard dog who could track quietly, cover short distances quickly, and pin and hold poachers. He is now primarily a family companion with a calm, dependable disposition. A mature adult male will average 26 inches and 120 pounds. The AKC granted recognition to the Bullmastiff in October, 1933.
