Mastiff - Guide to Mastiffs

Description: The Mastiff (sometimes called the Old English Mastiff or simply English Mastiff) is descended from the large, mastiff-type dogs brought to Britain as early as the 6th century BC, by Phoenician traders. The dogs were crossed with local fighting dogs and were used for hunting, and as fighters against bears, lions, bulls, and eventually dogs. However Mastiffs were most prized as a family guardian, courageous, yet devoted to their family; they maintained this popularity for over 2000 years in Britain, only to be reduced in numbers close to extinction after World War II and a breed census confirmed that there were only 8 dogs of breeding age left. With the help of a Canadian breeder who sent over puppies, the Mastiff was restored, and has again attained a high level of popularity.

Height: The height of a Mastiff is 30" (76.2cm) for dogs and 27.5" (69.8cm) for bitches.

Weight: The Mastiff weighs 175 - 190 lbs (78.1 - 84.8 kg).

Coat Type: The Mastiff has a short dense undercoat with a moderately coarse outer coat. The Mastiff does not require much grooming.

Color: The basic description of the color of the Mastiff's coat is 'fawn, apricot, or brindle' - according to the AKC Standard.

Temperament: The Mastiff is a courageous and intelligent dog, yet gentle and biddable. It makes a wonderful companion in a setting with a good deal of space. As with all dogs that are giants at maturity, training should begin early during puppy hood.
