ORIGIN OF THE BRED ~
The Bull Mastiff is a breed that originated in England in the mid 1800's. Approximately 60% Mastiff and 40% Bulldog. They were called the gamekeeper's night dog. The known history of the Bullmastiff begins about 1860 in England.
Bred to guard against poachers who threatened gameland in England; the Mastiff was not aggressive or fast enough, and the Bulldog was a little too ferocious and small; however, the resulting cross of Mastiff Bulldog was the Bullmastiff, great for throwing and holding poachers without mauling them.
- The Bullmastiff has been with the AKC since 1933.
- A mature adult male Bullmastiff will average 26 inches and 120 pounds.
- The primary use of Bullmastiffs now is as a firm, dependable and warm family dog.
Bullmastiffs are often described as: Fearless and confident yet docile. The dog combines the reliability, intelligence, and willingness to please required in a dependable family companion and protector.
