About the Bullmastiff Breed:
Bullmastiffs are very loving and completely devoted to their families. They are truly "gentle giants", but will defend their families. The breed was formed in England to protect against poachers. Their foundation breeding was 60% Mastiff and 40% Bulldog and are part of the Working Group. They were bred to pin & hold without mauling and known as the gamekeeper dog. The dark brindle was preferred for the obvious camouflage effect at night. The Bullmastiff breed loves to be around people rather than left alone for a long period of time. They crave love and attention and would stay in your lap if you let them! Please take this into consideration when making a decision to purchase a Bullmastiff...they are NOT loners! Do not attempt to train a Bullmastiff to do anything against their nature such as hunting or fighting. They aim to please but can be somewhat stubborn when it comes to training. Bullmastiffs require an assertive, yet loving, owner to show them who is boss. Bullmastiffs should be properly socialized with other people and other animals at a young age. They are great with children but should always be monitored around children simply because of their size.
The average male weighs 110-130 pounds and stands 25-27 inches at withers.
The average female weighs 100-120 pounds and stands 24-26 at withers.
They have short hair and are not excessive shedders.
Their coloring may be Fawn, Red, or Brindle. The Brindles can be more red or more fawn. Bullmastiffs have a dark mask and dark triangular shaped ears that lay flat against the sides of their face. Their heads are square and the snout is somewhat flat.
Their tails sit high on the rear and hang down below their hocks.
The average lifespan of a bullmastiff is 7-9 years according to the AKC. Of course, this may vary depending on their upbringing, diet, etc.
They love to eat, so never free-feed from an automatic feeder. Growing too much, too fast can cause serious skeletal problems. Ask your vet what the best diet would be and try to stick with a high quality food. An occasional treat of steak is always accepted by a bullmastiff though!!
Bullmastiffs require a moderate amount of exercise each day. One walk a day is enough for most bullmastiffs.
