The Mastiff is one of the most ancient types of dogs. His ancestor, the molossus, was known 5,000 years ago. Then, he was a ferocious war dog, very different from the benevolent behemoth that he is today.

He makes a fine companion for anyone who can accommodate his great size and doesn’t mind a little drool slung here and there. Full Mastiff profile on
