Bullmastiff Dog
The Gamekeeper's Nightdog


The Bullmastiff dog was created in the last half of
the 18th Century to assist gamekeepers in thwarting
poachers.   The gentle giant, brave and protective Mastiff
was crossed with the large fierce Bulldog of those days.   It
was just what the gamekeepers needed.   The resulting dog,
then called the "Game Keepers Nightdog," and later on,
the "Bullmastiff," inherited the best of both.   He was very
loyal and protective, powerful and quick on his feet, yet
silent in his approach.   He subdued the poachers by
his size and strength without harming them.

Today, the Bullmastiff is a family pet, a dependable
guard dog, very intelligent, courageous, bold and fearless.
Viciousness is never tolerated in the breed.   They are
often seen at dog shows, where they are grand.   A
Bullmastiff puppy, or a young adult would
profit from formal obedience training.
