Bullmastiff - Guide to Bullmastiffs

Description: The Bullmastiff was bred by English gamekeepers in the late 1800s due to a need for a fearless guard dog to protect large estates and game preserves from poachers. These breeders crossed an Old English Bulldog (agility and tenacity) with an English Mastiff (size, strength and loyalty). The Bullmastiff was trained to tackle and pin down poachers, but were trained not to bite.

The Bullmastiff is a large and powerfully built dog. Fearless and intelligent, these dogs thrive on being with family. It's their instinct to protect - Bullmastiffs are extremely loyal dogs that want to please.

The English Kennel Club recognized the Bullmastiff as a purebred dog in 1924 and the American Kennel Club recognized the Bullmastiff in October of 1933.

Height: The height for a Bullmastiff adult dog is 25 to 27 inches tall (63.5 to 68.5 cm) at the withers. Females typically reach 24 to 26 inches (61 to 66 cm) at the withers.

Temperament: The Bullmastiff is good-natured, calm, loyal, courageous and loving. This breed has a very strong protective instinct although these dogs normally do not attack to protect. They'll pin down the one who poses a threat with their massive build or will stand in front of them not allowing them to pass. Early socialization of a Bullmastiff is imperative due to their massive size and wariness of strangers. This breed does very well with children, but must be careful around smaller children since they may inadvertently knock t...
