Mastiff Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: English Mastiff
Breed Group: Working Group Height Male: Minimum 30 inches (76 cm)
Breed Size: Giant Height Female: Minimum 27½ inches (70 cm)
Breed Origin: Great Britain Weight: 120-230 pounds
Appearance
The Mastiff, also known as the English Mastiff and Old English Mastiff, is one of the heaviest breeds — an adult male can weigh more than 200 pounds. He is massive, powerful, stately and noble in appearance and he is known as the gentle giant of the dog world.
 

Temperament
The Mastiff is watchful, self-confident and patient. He is very devoted to his family and will protect both his family and property in a calm and dignified manner. While some Mastiffs tend to be aloof with strangers, others are fairly friendly. However, the breed has a strong guarding instinct and will always be very watchful of strangers entering the home and/or around his family members. His good nature, patience and calm, steady demeanor also means that he is generally excellent with children. The Mastiff needs human companionship and is not a dog to be left alone for long periods of time.

All Mastiffs slobber. The amount varies from one dog to the next. While some slobber only when eating, drinking or when they are hot; others seem to slobber constantly.

 
History
Mastiffs were used to guard castles and estates, as war dogs accompanying soldiers into battle and, when the Romans invaded Britain, they took dogs back to Italy and used them to guard property and prisoners as well as to fight in arenas. During the Elizabethan era, Mastiffs were used to fight large game, including bears and tigers, usually for the entertainment of the Queen.
 
Health
If you are considering the purchase of a Mastiff puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
