A breed admired for its bravery and used for centuries as guard, hunting and war dogs, Mastiffs are one of the largest and most powerful breeds of dog. The perfect companion for the strong man. Mastiffs are extremely affectionate to their owners, including children, and make a devoted family pet. They have a strong instinct to protect their domain and must be properly trained and socialized at an early age to prevent aggression towards strangers.
Recognizable by their large, wrinkly heads and jowls that hang down over the chin, the breed can also have dark ears and a black mask of its face and requires minimal grooming. Because of their size, the breed does best in the country or areas with lots of room to roam.
