The Bullmastiff breed was produced by crossing Mastiffs and the old type of English Bulldogs more than 150 years ago in the U.K. Lauded for their very good protection skills, Bullmastiffs soon revealed themselves as outstanding assets in the fight against poaching.Bullmastiffs are smaller than Mastiffs but much more imposing than Bulldogs.
