Let's talk about how to select a Bullmastiff. First lets consider their physical characteristics. This is a fairly square breed of dog weighing over one hundred pounds potentially at two hundred and thirty pounds. Very heavy dog. Not particularly active but in general when we talk about the breed and without consideration for individuals, a good watch dog and a good guard dogs. So there could be some issues with compatibility with other dogs and certainly some protectiveness around strangers. So those things are important to take into consideration when you look at this breed of job. Always, don't consider simply how the dog looks, or the few things that you may know about the dog, but talk to other individuals who have the breed of dog, and do some research on what the dog, what the dog's general temperament, characteristics, and health issues may be, so you can select honestly and appropriately select a breed of dog that will fit well with your family now, and with your family potentially ten years down the road, and hopefully the dog will be with you for that number of years. They tend to be an affectionate dog, maybe a little bit more difficult to train. Again, they were initially bred to be guard dogs, and so that is going to be their predominant characteristic. You want to look into, especially with larger breeds of dogs, look into a very reputable breeder who breeds for health of the animal and good temperament, to make sure you get a good animal you can live with. And that could be potentially more money. If you don't want to spend a lot of money on a dog, on finding a dog, then you, I would strongly suggest that you consider adopting from a reputable rescue.
