The Rockefellers are associated with many things, among them unfettered wealth and equally generous philanthropy. But missing from the long list of Rockefeller accomplishments is, in a word: Bullmastiffs. The connection between America’s richest family and Britain’s premier estate-guardian breed is little known. But in the 1930s and ’40s – very discreetly and very quietly, as was their wont – the Rockefellers imported some of the nation’s earliest Bullmastiffs, and initiated one of the first breeding programs in the United States. "The Rockefeller Bullmastiffs" explores this famous family's relationship with the breed, a fabulous experiment that used the dogs for their intended purposes -- as the patrolers and guardians of a vast estate.
