Dog Breed - What Exactly Is A Bull Mastiff?

byJeremy Wong

The calm, loyal , and loving Bullmastiff has a strong and protective instinct and personality. When danger arouses, it will protect and defend its owner from possible threats.

It's origins started in England back in the second half of the nineteen century when gamekeepers needed to protect game preserves and large estates from poachers. Dog Breeders and some gamekeepers began to cross existing breeds to produce a dog breed that would possess the required aggressiveness, strength, speed, intelligence and the quietness needed to scare off approaching poachers.

Some might say that a Bull Mastiff looks a lot like a bulldog because of it's sad look. And they are right. A Bullmastiff's DNA is made up of sixty-percent Mastiff (Old English Bulldog) and forty-percent Bulldog (Modern Day Short English Bulldog) and can weigh up to a 130 pounds. It's color ranges from a deep red to a light red fawn which is known to many as a red-fawn.

A protector and a lover, a Bullmastiff may not get along well with other dog breeds. However, it get's along pretty well with people and children and is often very loving towards them. They are also quite sensitive to the tone of your voice but requires an assertion of authority over him as they are quite stubborn. <>Although a Bull Mastiff's coat is short, dense and gives great weather protection, he enjoys living in the house where he is close to loved ones. In today's modern world, a Bull Mastiff in a fine example of a first-rate family dog. They generally cost around $700 to $1,500 depending on their size, color and character and shed very little hair.
