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.
