Distinct feature : The Bullmastiff has a large, wrinkly head and a short, wide, dark muzzle. It has a dark nose with wide nostrils and round, amber eyes. Bullmastiffs have a moderately pronounced stop (point at which the muzzle meets the forehead) and dark, V-shaped ears which hang close to the face. They have a flat back and highly set, low hanging tail. They are dignified and powerful in appearance.
Coat : The Bullmastiff has a short-haired red, light tan (Ã¢â‚¬ËœfawnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢) or reddish-brown (Ã¢â‚¬ËœbrindleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢) coat with a distinctive dark area on the muzzle and ears and around the eyes. Some white on the chest is permissible. Bullmastiffs shed little.
Temperament : The Bullmastiff can be somewhat dominant toward other Bullmastiffs (males especially do not get along), but is very tolerant towards children and can get along with other household pets provided proper socialization has taken place, preferably when young. Though they would do no harm intentionally, Bullmastiffs should be watched around young children due to their immense size.
Character : The Bullmastiff is intelligent, loyal, obedient, and courageous. It builds a strong bond of devotion with its family. Bullmastiffs are highly protective of their family against any perceived threats, but they are much more likely to bowl over strangers than attack, which makes them desirable as guard dogs. They do, however, have a stubborn side which sometimes makes them resistant to obedience training. Some Bullmastiffs may drool or snore.
Activity : The Bullmastiff only requires a moderate amount of exercise for its large size. It will be satisfied with a daily opportunity to run and play on a leash.
