Grand and dignified, the Mastiff is believed to have originated in Asia. A giant breed, he was bred in England as a watchdog for more than 2,000 years. Powerful, good-natured and docile, the Mastiff is a gentle, loyal companion best-suited for suburban or country life due to his size. Mastiffs require light exercise and minimal grooming.
Famous Mastiff owners include King Henry VII, Marlon Brando and Bob Dylan.
