Bullmastiff

 

The Bullmastiff is thought to originate in UK where they were bred to protect large country estates from poachers. The original colour was brindle, which gave the dog good camouflage when prowling for poachers at dusk.

They need no grooming but enjoy a rub. The tail is not docked. The colour can be red, fawn or brindle with black on the muzzle and around the eyes. They need a big yard and exercise.

A bullmastiff who knows his own strength may try to dominate his owner. Careful training will be beneficial. The qualities needed to train a bullmastiff are. "Love, joy, patience and gentleness, and self-control."  The Bible likens these qualities to "fruit." A good tree bears good fruit, and bad tree bears useless fruit. What kind of fruit are we producing?

Galatians chapter 5 verse 22
