A brief presentation of the Doubull-Mastiff

The Doubull-Mastiff is a creation of two pure breeds, the Bullmastiff and the Mastiff. The Doubull-Mastiff will be a giant breed. Its dense coat will be short and the fall will be weak. Brushing can be done weekly to remove dead hairs and keep its coat shiny. This will be a low-energy dog and a loving, gentle and loyal companion, a gentle giant that makes a wonderful pet. Owners of this hybrid say that, because of its size, the Doubull-Mastiff is not suited to apartment living.

History of the Doubull-Mastiff

Because the Doubull-Mastiff is a very modern breed, documentation on its history is limited. However, we can go back over the history of its parents.
        

A little of the Bullmastiff

        
The Bullmastiff was first introduced to the USA in the 1920s by oil magnate John D. Rockefeller, who wanted the big, intimidating dog to guard his country estate. Developed in England around the 1860s, the Bullmastiff is a cross between the Mastiff and the Bulldog. Gamekeepers bred these two fearsome breeds to help ward off poachers who wanted access to wild animals within the boundaries of the estate. The Bullmastiff was known as the "gamekeeper's night dog" because it was agile, fast and strong despite its size, and could run and hold off a poacher.

A little of the Mastiff

Mastiff-like dogs are thought to have lived in Asia since 2500 B.C. These dogs were used to hunt lions, fight in arenas and as war dogs. In the Roman Colosseum, they were pitted against bulls, tigers, bears and lions. Julius Caesar wrote about the Mastiff-type breed in his account of the invasion of Britain in 55 BC. Today's Mastiff was developed in England over two thousand years ago. Bred as guard dogs, they protected livestock from wolves and other predators. During the 1800s, the Mastiff was used in cruel sports such as dog fighting, bear baiting and bull baiting. During the First and Second World Wars, the breed almost became extinct; they were used as ammunition carriers and were also difficult to feed when food was scarce.

Appearance of the Doubull-Mastiff

The Doubull-Mastiff will have the physical characteristics of both its parents. It will be a giant breed with a very muscular body. The Doubull-Mastiff is a large dog with a dense, short coat. Its color is fawn or brindle. Doubull-Mastiffs have large, square heads, V-shaped floppy ears and short muzzles. Their facial expression is noble and loving. The breed has large, deep jowls and is known to drool, requiring daily facial cleansing. They have a dark mask around the eyes and nose. The Doubull-Mastiff may have a slight underbite and the skin around its face may be wrinkled and have folds.

Temperament of the Doubull-Mastiff

The Doubull-Mastiff will have the behavior and personality traits of both parents. Family protection and good guard dogs, early obedience training and socialization with strangers and other dogs are recommended. They are generally not barkers, but they are not calm dogs. They sniff, growl and snore. They also make a lot of drool. Doubull-Mastiffs can be a little stubborn, so patience and constant training are essential. They can be a little lazy, but daily walks are necessary to keep them from becoming overweight. They are friendly and good with children, but because of their size, they need to be supervised when interacting with them. Children must learn to respect and be gentle with animals. They should not be allowed to ride the Doubull-Mastiff as this can cause physical damage. The Doubull-Mastiff is a gentle, affectionate giant who needs to remember that he's not a lapdog.

Needs and activities of the Doubull-Mastiff

Your Doubull-Mastiff will enjoy daily walks. He'll also enjoy playing fetch and running in a fenced-in yard. Play should be limited during high temperatures. His energy level will be higher when he's a puppy, but as he's growing very fast, it's important that he doesn't overdo it despite his youth. Excessive exercise for a growing large-breed puppy can damage joints and bones. The Doubull-Mastiff may want to live the life of a couch potato, but daily exercise is necessary to prevent obesity.

Maintenance of the Doubull-Mastiff

The Doubull-Mastiff has a short, dense coat that requires little maintenance. Weekly brushing can help eliminate loose fur. The folds and wrinkles of its face should be cleaned daily and kept as dry as possible so that moisture build-up doesn't cause bacteria and yeast to proliferate. His ears should be cleaned weekly with a cotton bud. To prevent tartar and gingivitis, his teeth should be brushed with canine toothpaste several times a week. His nails may need trimming every month. It's a good idea to trim his nails like a puppy, so he gets used to the practice. Once accustomed to the diet, many dogs enjoy the attention.
