The Bullmastiff is strong & alert as well as loving & loyal towards its owners. He is a firm and fearless family guardian. He's a determined protector when needed and a loving family companion the rest of the time. The Bullmastiff has been developed form the English Mastiff and the extinct Old English Bulldog. They are quiet dogs and don’t really prefer barking, but can do so if need arises.

In the mid-19th century, the English gamekeepers started realizing the need for a big, strong, fearless and quiet dog to guard estates, track down poachers and hold them till they arrived. The cross between the Old English Bulldog and the Mastiff, turned out to be the perfect fit, which the gamekeepers were looking for. The English bulldog was fearless, brave and tenacious while the Mastiff was large but quiet and less aggressive. The Bullmastiff quickly became popular among the gamekeepers and was known as the Gamekeeper’s Night Dog. The Bullmastiff soon gained the reputation of being a very good guard dog. By the early 20th century, it was recognized as an individual breed and was started to be bred with its distinct identity.
