The Bullmastiff, originally called the "Gamekeepers Night Dog," was developed in the late 1800's in England to assist gamekeepers patrolling large landholdings. The breed is a cross between the English Bulldog and the English Mastiff. Today the Bullmastiff is a family guardian, watchdog, and Search and Rescue dog.

The Bullmastiff is an active, loyal, fearless, and powerful dog with a short, stiff coat. Standing 24-27" tall, it weighs 90-130 pounds.
