      About Mastiffs

      The Mastiff is an ancient breed, supposedly originating in Asia, and was used as a guardian and war dog. Despite their imposing size, today's Mastiffs are incredibly kind, patient family companions. They are infinitely loyal and sweet-tempered, love to please their owners, and tend to be protective of their loved ones. These affectionate dogs typically weigh up to 200 lbs. in adulthood and, as a result, do best in larger living spaces. Mastiffs are excellent with children, are low energy, and are truly 'gentle giants'.

      This breed has the largest litter size; mastiffs can give birth to an impressive 10-24 puppies at a time!

      Origin

      This old breed descends from one of the most ancient types of dogs, the molosser, which is believed to have originated in the mountains of Asia and was used to guard flocks from predators.
