About this title


Destined to become The Bible for Mastiff owners, this book examines the Mastiff's history and development. A loyal guardian but gentle soul, this large dog was used in the Middle Ages for bull baiting and fighting for sport. Features tales and legends of Mastiffs, prominent kennels, health problems, breeding, and whelping puppies.

From the Publisher:

It has been many years since a book on the Mastiffs was published. This is destined to be one of the great ones, perhaps even a classic. We do feel that this book will quickly become the bible for Mastiff owners.

This breed book is uniquely unique. A great many breed books that are in bookstores are simply boilerplate, with only the pictures, kennel names, and breed names changed. If you go into a bookstore or pet store and pick up two look-alike breed books from the shelf youll see that they have identical table of contents!

People who are looking for a great guard dog that is good (and safe!) with children will be delighted by the information available in this text. For such a large dog, the Mastiff is very aware of its size, and also knows how powerful it is. Intimidating simply by its size, Mastiffs are great for families who want protection, but do not want the aggressiveness sometimes found in other breeds such as Rottweilers or Dobermans.
