    History

    The English Mastiff It is a breed of dog of large size type trotting and English origin.

    The history of this dog goes back to the year 55 a. c., time when the legions invaded Great Britain and to his surprise had to face an enemy that had two curious assistants, two dogs of striking features.

    One of them was strong and robust both body and members, with a large head and a short but powerful jaw.

    That dog is possibly the ancestor of the Bulldog, and part of the current Bullmastiff.

    The other dog had dimensions that gave fear, looked more like a lion as a dog. This specimen was a direct descendant of the mastiffs 'asiriobabilonios' who had travelled to England by the Phoenicians five centuries before the Roman invasion.

    Before this beanpole, the 'molossians of Epirus' that the Romans they brought with them their dogs of war, they seemed Chihuahuas…

    What a time conquered 'Britannia', the Romans, they expanded his army with several copies of those giant and fearful dogs who called "Pugnaces Britannici" and they used them, mainly in the it shows typical

    They faced these dogs with huge wild beasts in the arenas of circuses, There they were involved in bloody fighting against bulls, bears and other dogs. Also, they were used as guardians of herds, bodyguard, protectors and companions.

    The English Mastiff and Mastiff, is descended directly from those dogs.

    A Mastiff came to America on Board of the Mayflower, name of the ship that transported the so-called "Pilgrims" from England (United Kingdom), to the coast of what is today the United States of America, in the year 1620.

    They were the first settlers, in settling on the coast of Massachusetts, forming the Plymouth Colony, and with them the English Mastiff.

    There is documentary evidence that the English Mastiff first came to America on the Mayflower, but the standardization of the breed in United States did not occur until the end of the 19th century.

    By the end of the second world war, the mastiffs were almost extinct in England. However, with the flow of imports of United States and Canada, the race returned to emerge and today its existence does not run any danger in England and it has gained much popularity in North America.

    Physical characteristics

    This is a race of powerful composition, burly, wide skull and the head usually has a square appearance.

    Of size It must be very large and give the impression of power and strength, viewed from any angle. The body must be massive with great width and depth, especially between the Forelegs, cause these are well separated. While no height or weight have been specified for this race, the approximate height of 70 a 80 cm and the weight of 80 kg to 90 kg.

    His hair is short and glued to the body and color may vary, while its snout, ears and nose, around the eyes is always black.

    This is a particularly large dog that requires a correct diet and exercise. Normally live in 10 a 12 years.

    Different colors are possible, for example, sand color, striped, brown or gray. Unfortunately the human tends to extremes and the mastiff was not spared from this. So he's been raised bigger and bigger and heavier for the past few decades. His head has become increasingly massive and many folds have also been made. Giants could no longer reproduce naturally, they could no longer walk properly, his life expectancy was dramatically reduced.

    Character and skills

    The Mastiff breed is a combination of greatness, dignity, and courage; calm and affectionate towards his owner, but capable of protecting.

    He is a well-mannered dog but you need enough field to stretch his long body. It is an extremely loyal breed and, Although it shows no excessively, It is true to his family and is very good with children.

    However, It can be very jealous for the protection of owners and should be handled sensibly, post is exceptionally powerful and can be difficult to control.

    Seeks proximity to its humans. It is a reliable protector for them. In case of acute threat to your humans, will try to keep danger away from them by facing the attacker with his body, but it won't attack him anymore. His calm and serene temperament makes him a loyal and child-friendly companion, who forgives everything. It gets along very well with other pets.

    English Mastiff Education

    Keep in mind that in an adult mastiff the strap is only symbolically a control. The mastiff easily has the power to maneuver the other end of the line at will. But you don't want to do it, at least if you have enjoyed the basics of a good education. The Mastiff is very easy to train. Only its stubbornness has to be broken here and here a consistent smoothness is needed. He wants to follow his master and caretaker and he does it very reliably. It is an elementary duty of the owner of a Mastiff to pay attention to a consistent education already in the puppy. This alone and not the strap makes wonderful walks in nature possible, that together with this four-legged friend become a balm for the soul of agitated people.

    Care and health English Mastiff

    Caring for a healthy mastiff is not a problem. Brushing the coat once a week is enough.

    Typical diseases

    Gigantism with copies of more than 90 kg, sometimes up to 120 kg, unbalances the entire natural dog building plan. Serious gait damage is just one consequence, and life expectancy is also greatly reduced. Bad habit of strong folding of the head and body often leads to chronic inflammations. As in most large dogs, we see hip or elbow dysplasia. Eye and heart disease can occur more frequently with mastiffs – the rule is always: the more serious, the greater the risk.

    Nutrition / Food

    You need a lot of high quality food. Especially in the growth phase you need a professional nutrition plan. Having a feeding bowl upright is helpful to counter the risk of stomach twisting. You should always pay close attention to their weight.

    Race theories argue that at least four thousand years ago pastoralists inhabiting the peninsula already used them as watchdogs of cattle.

    Natural resources and the climate of the Iberian Peninsula led to the transhumance, for which reason, for many centuries the Spanish Mastiff has played the role of protector of flocks, especially of herds of 'Merino sheep' whose history is very attached to this dog breed. In some places it is known as 'merinero dog' to accompany the Merino breed sheep.

    Spanish Mastiff, He is regarded as the oldest Spanish race.

    At the end of the 19th century with the gradual disappearance of the grazing and transhumance, Mastiff Spanish began to be 'unnecessary', If that him I add to the Spanish civil war and its consequent period of scarcity and - also - the sharp decline in the number of wolves, as a result we have that this breed of dog was on the verge of extinction.

    During this time many copies of Mastiff Spanish sacrificed, Some were emasculated and other so many purchased by enthusiasts that breeders, guided more by love of the race than by knowledge, start you a totally disorganized parenting.

    After the debacle, Fortunately, the recovery of the breed has been achieved though with great difficulty.

    In 1981 adopted a new standard whose main objective was to recover the much larger Mastiff that was used in the transhumant cattle.

    Comments

    As it's a race in recovery process, is very difficult to find perfect copies (namely, adjusted completely to the standard).

    It is not a dog suitable for beginners, but it could be a very rewarding challenge for any enthusiast with the desire to raise a dog's long history and huge potential as a Spanish Mastiff.
