A Detailed

Mastiff History



My research on the Mastiff breed started in 1984 and has never stopped since then. The marvel thereto has been only on the increase. Visiting regularly its home country Great Britain has helped me in many ways .


In 1984 there was no www . Present-day almost everyone has the opportunity to share information on a world-wide scale and, taken personally , it's a privilege to work out this modest website and hopefully it may be of some interest in each one' own quest after the genuinity of the Mastiff breed . Regards !


In order to structure information a book form became an obvious option. Presently 'The Mastiff Revisited' counts more than 2100 pages , richly illustrated with relevant images of all kinds ; it treats the early breed history until WW-II and the menu provides a short onlook into it . For the pleasure of those looking for backgrounds of more recent Mastiff breeding , a review about - mainly British - Post WW-II Mastiff history is added .

Disclaimer – This website does not claim any level of veracity regarding pedigreed information as it only 'provides' data recorded by the Kennel Club , old pre-KC charts , &c ; it thereby must be stressed that historical references are presumably often of mere anecdotal evidence and secondly, that ' opinion' is always subjective .
