This bred, thought to have originated in Asia, has made his mark throughout history. Egyptian drawings dated about 3000 B.C. show depictions of the mastiff. Julius Caesar describes this massive, powerful breed as courageous canines who fought alongside the Roman legions during the invasion of Britain in 55 B.C.
For over two centuries, the mastiff held the role of a guard dog throughout Europe. Today, though the formidable presence of a mastiff makes him an ideal watchdog, when properly trained and socialized, he can be an affable companion.
