Welcome to Moks Bull Mastiff Home
The bullmastiff was developed during the mid-19th century by British gamekeepers to protect country estates from poachers. By crossing the larger mastiff with the bulldog, breeders were able to develop a powerfully built but active animal that could cover short distances quickly, knock a poacher down to the ground, and hold him there until the gamekeeper arrived to apprehend the intruder.
Today, however, the bullmastiff is more likely to be an easygoing, loyal and loving family pet than a poacher's worst enemy. "The gamekeeper's night dog" can now be found lounging in family homes and competing in show rings. The breed was recognized by the AKC in 1933.
