The Mastiff

The Mastiff is a giant-breed dog with a long history. Most people are first attracted to this breed by its massiveness, but do not realize that with a large dog may come large problems. This homepage will attempt to portray the breed in an honest and accurate way to help potential owners to evaluate the suitability of a mastiff for their situation. A MASTIFF IS NOT FOR EVERYONE! They are powerful dogs and therefore need training. They tend to drool and snore loudly. Like any large breed, they are prone to joint problems such as hip dysplasia. However, if you can get past it all, Mastiffs are a joy to own.
