Mastiffs are a large, powerful type of dog. Mastiffs are some of the largest dogs in the world, typically having short coats, long, low set tails and enormous feet. Mastiffs have large bulky skulls with broad brachycephalic-type muzzles, and typically have drooping pendant-shaped ears. European and Asian records dating back 3,000 years show dogs of mastiff type. Mastiffs have historically been guard dogs, protecting homes and property, although throughout history they have been used as hunting dogs, war dogs and for blood sports, fighting each other and such animals as bears, lions and bulls.
