He is said to be a descendant of these Roman mastiffs who fought the big cats in the arenas and were used as a war dog. Its name "Mastiff" comes from the English "Masty" which means "Powerful". In Cynographia Britannica it says: What the Lion is to the Cat the Mastiff is to the Dog. In terms of mass, it is one of the largest dog breeds, although surpassed in size by the Irish Wolfhound and the Great Dane. It is a guard and defense dog (Section 2.1 Molossoid, Mastiff type). Only subjects with a pedigree or a birth certificate can be called Mastiffs. Mastiffs are not subject to any particular legislation. temper The Mastiff is a special combination of dignity and courage. They are dogs with a naturally good character, placid and strangely gentle. It is a dog that likes an apartment, like in the countryside, it curiously does not take up much space, requiring only the total attention of its masters (it cannot stand loneliness). Mastiffs do, however, need daily exercise and activity to keep them in good shape, although they sometimes prefer to sit rather than chase the ball you throw at them (especially if you throw it far). The Mastiff is an extremely loyal and devoted dog, it is often said of him that he has only one master. Distrustful of strangers, he is a good guard. Its presence alone in a garden is enough to intimidate. He is a dog who learns very quickly and whose education is done naturally, because that is how his temperament is. You don't get anything from this dog by being brutal, he only understands gentleness. Raising his voice turns him on right away and it's not possible to get anything out of him for a long time. He is a dog who adores children, but who does not know his strength and who can be brutal without wanting to. Despite his sweetness and kindness, he is a dog with enormous physical strength that can be hard to keep on a leash. business card Category
