The Bull Mastiff is the result of a cross between the Mastiff and the Bulldog. Game wardens used the Bull Mastiff to chase down poachers, at which point the dog was trained to tackle the offender, hold him down and wait for the game warden. As a result, Bull Mastiffs are currently good household guard dogs that will stop an intruder but not attack.

Despite being well suited to be a guard dog, Bull Mastiffs are great family dogs that are even-tempered and loyal companions. They are very good family dogs who require an assertive leader to guide them. They should be socialized at an early age with other animals and people so that they may become acclimated to meeting new people and creatures.

Finding a Breeder

Bull Mastiffs are prone to hip dysplasia, so be sure that any breeder that you’re considering offers a health guarantee. Health guarantees should be lifetime, not limited to a month or a year. If a breeder offers you a limited health guarantee, you should start searching for another breeder to get your dog from.

Be sure to ask as many questions as you like about the dog you’re considering and the line of dogs it came from. You should have access to all medical records concerning the puppy and its parents. The breeder should have a lineage chart available for your perusal. The breeder should provide you with your American Kennel Club registration at the time you receive your puppy. If the breeder does not provide you with papers, you should get the parents’ names and a litter number so that you can register your dog yourself.
