The Mastiff, or English Mastiff, is the largest and oldest of the Mastiff breeds and most likely the distant relative of many of today’s working breeds. From as far back as the 7th century BC this breed has been protecting its master and family. In spite of their size, it is rare that a Mastiff would actually attack a person, more likely, they would “hold” the person down until told to release them. This breed has a short coat making it easy to groom, and it comes in fawn, apricot or brindle with a black muzzle. Today’s Mastiffs enjoy a roll as a faithful family companion and home protector, preferring to be with a child or family member rather than sleeping alone. Mastiffs have been seen in many movies such as The Sandlot I and II, Marmaduke and Hotel for Dogs. The heaviest dog on record is a Mastiff from England who tipped the scales at 343 pounds. The AKC recognized the Mastiff in the Working Group in 1885.
