This unique British breed was produced by crossing the English mastiff with old-fashioned bulldogs powerful gamekeeper’s assistant, its speed and strength enabled it to chase and subdue poachers without causing them lasting injury. While it is roughly the same size as the Rottweiler, its relative lack of popularity can be attributed to its boisterous stubbornness. Head halters work well to control the rather headstrong behavior of males in particular. This is a breed suitable for experienced dog handlers only.
