  • Mastiffs are powerful, heavily built dogs, with short muzzles, frequently protruding lower jaws, skulls raised above the eyes, ears erect or pendulous, pendulous upper lips, short coats and thin tails.
  • Mastiffs are employed for fighting or as watchdogs, and for the most part are of uncertain temper and not high intelligence.
