A loyal guardian but gentle soul, this large dog was used in the Middle Ages for bull baiting and fighting for sport.

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.From the Back Cover:
For the First-Time Owner - A to Z on buying, owning, and raising Mastiffs--a practical guide to the world of Mastiffs.
For the Would-Be Breeder - How to raise and train a stud dog and how to manage a breeding of these gentle giant Mastiffs. How to maintain and meet the needs of the pregnant Mastiff and lots of whelping information.
For the Entire Mastiff Community - Ancient history, British Mastiff history through WWII, American history, top show dogs, top producers, top obedience dogs, temperament, Mastiff artwork, and much, much more!
This book is an ABSOLUTE MUST for anyone even contemplating sharing their life with one or more very large dogs. There have been other books written about the Mastiff--but never one that gives the reader such an in-depth view of living with these magnificent dogs. A tremendous resource that answers questions breeders face when the vet is not around. A guidebook that offers a wealth of knowledge on how to own healthy, happy Mastiffs, written with humor and wisdom. It will make you laugh and make you cry, but it will also become an invaluable and practical handbook for all dog owners--whatever the breed.
