9 Weeks Old on Wednesday, May 19, 2010
Dad is 100% Bullmastiff and weighs 140 pounds at 18 months old.
Mom is a light brindle 3/4 Bullmastiff, 1/4 American Bulldog.
Bullmastiffs are wonderful family friends. They are calm, laid back dogs who form a strong bonds with their families. They are gentle and tolerant with children. As they mature they may become suspicious of strangers if not well socialized from pups. They are protective but very stable. With their families they are big, affectionate marshmallows who would remain lapdogs forever if allowed. They require firm but gentle training as they tend to be a bit stubborn but, at the same time, very sensitive. They do not like to be in trouble. As with any big dog, Bullmastiffs should begin obedience training immediately so that by the time they are full grown they are well behaved canine citizens. Once you've had a Bullmastiff, nothing else will ever do again.
The American Bulldog is NOT an American Pit Bull. He is the closest surviving relative of the Old English Bulldog and is a friendly, intelligent dog who is loyal to a fault. The coat is smooth and short, and comes in all shades of brindle, varying degrees of white, red, brown, tan, fawn, and piebald. They genuinely love children and are known for their bravery when it comes to protecting their families. As with the Bullmastiff, they are strong-minded and require a firm but gentle pack leader for training.
