Mastiff Characteristics

The Mastiff, sometimes referred to as the Old English Mastiff, is one of the most ancient breeds of dog around today. Their ancestors date back to over 5000 years ago! The modern-day version is wise, docile, and loving. These dogs can naturally take on the guard dog role but are also perfectly happy as a family companion.

Fast Facts

  • Size Large

Few dogs can match the stature of the Mastiff. Most come up to 27-32 inches at the shoulder, and many weigh between 130-220 pounds, with the 1989 world record holder weighing in at a hefty 323 pounds. While their size was initially used to help them hunt wild animals or defend soldiers in battle, the modern Mastiff is meek and mild in comparison – a classic “gentle giant.” These dogs are commonly found with blue, black, or apricot coats.
 
Though many people enjoy having a Mastiff as a companion, their size brings on a number of unique health problems, a shorter than usual lifespan, and, we have to be honest here, a lot of drool!  They often experience some hereditary conditions, so be sure you’re regular with the vet and take the best care of your big pup. The Mastiff typically lives only between 6-10 years and will do more drooling within those years than a chihuahua will do in 20!  
 
These dogs require relatively little exercise, and they do better indoors than outside, which is quite outstanding for a breed this size. While they're not particularly difficult to train, obedience training is imperative, as an untrained 200-pound dog has the potential to wreak havoc in certain circumstances, even if they have the best intentions in their big hearts.
