The Mastiff Dog Breed 2
The Mastiff dog breed is among the heaviest and toughest breeds in the world, weighing in excess of 200 lbs. 
Used in ancient times as arena gladiators where they participated in bull, bear, and dog combat, the Mastiff dog breed
is very intelligent, loyal and deeply devoted to their family. This breed is not for a first time dog owner. 
They require strict training and a firm, consistent owner to control their aggressive tendencies.
