When it comes to their coat, the Bullmastiff boasts a short and hard very weather-resistant coat that lies close and flat to their body. Accepted breed colors includes the following:
- Brindle with black muzzle
- Fawn with black muzzle
- Red with black muzzle
Bullmastiff can have slight white markings on their chests which are acceptable as a breed standard. Their muzzles must be black with the color blending in with their coats towards their eyes and with dark markings found around their eyes, their coloring adds to a Bullmastiff's expressive face.
The Bullmastiff breed has an innate and deep desire to run. They do best with a large securely fenced yard. If they are left alone for extended periods of time they will become bored which leads to digging and destruction. They make excellent walking and jogging companions provided they are very securely leashed and the climate is not too hot. The Bullmastiff is not recommended for apartment dwelling unless they are exceedingly well trained and sufficiently exercised. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.
The bullmastiff has a broad, wrinkled head and a fairly short, square muzzle.
The nose is black, the eyes dark hazel. The ears are v-shaped and hang downward. The tail is set high on the rear end and reaches to the dog's hocks. The bullmastiff's body is large, powerful, and square looking. The coat hair is short and easy to maintain; coat colors may be fawn, reddish-brown or brindle. A male bullmastiff ranges in height from 25 to 27 inches and weighs between 110 to 130 pounds (50 to 59 kilograms). Females range in height from 24 to 26 inches and weigh between 100 to 120 pounds (45 and 54 kilograms).
A family with a bullmastiff will be rewarded with a loving, loyal companion. However, despite the dog's generally easy-going nature, supervision is imperative when the dog is around children as the dog is so large that it could inadvertently knock a child over. Socialization and training are crucial to living successfully with this breed. By exposing the dog to as many new people, places and situations as possible, especially when he's a puppy, he may be less suspicious of visitors and people he doesn't know. The short coat makes his grooming needs minimal and he sheds little.
If you're adding a bullmastiff to your family, consider buying him a bib as these dogs tend to slobber and drool quite a bit. They also are known for snoring. As is true with most very large breeds, the bullmastiff doesn't live as long as smaller dogs do. Average life expectancy is about eight to 10 years.
