Mastiff

Mastiff


Height: 27.5-33 inches

Weight: 175-190 lbs.

Life Span: 8-10 yrs.

Breed Group: Guardian Dogs

Overview
Properly bred, socialized, and trained mastiffs are gentle, good-natured, and easygoing. They love children and usually get along with other animals.

They can be stubborn when being obedience trained but will come around if handled with patience and gentleness. They are usually friendly with strangers, in their own reserved way, but may be territorial and are therefore good watchdogs.

Their power and massive size can be formidable, so it is important that any signs of dominance or aggression be addressed immediately with a trainer. Mastiffs thrive on companionship and should be included in family activities. They can be heavy droolers.

Appearance
The outercoat is straight, coarse, and moderately short; the undercoat is dense, short, and close.

Coat color is fawn, apricot, or brindle. The muzzle, ears, and nose are darker than the body. A small patch of white may appear on the chest. The head is massive.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Mastiffs need only quick weekly brushings. They need long daily walks and occasional opportunities to run and play in a secured area.

Origins
Mastiffs have inhabited Europe and Asia for thousands of years, but their origins are unclear. Historically, they have been hunters, guards, and fighters.

Special Alerts
It is especially important to purchase a mastiff from a reputable breeder.

Breed-related health concerns: hip and elbow dysplasia, ectropion, bloat.
