In translation from Latin, «mastinus» means «a horse-dog». It is one of the most ancient dog groups on the Earth. In the past, people used Mastiffs for hunting lions, bears and tigers. Also, Mastiffs participated in wars and entertained public during gladiator games. It is believed that all modern guard and fighting breeds originated from Mastiffs.

These large calm pets are also strong and enduring. While Great Danes are used mostly as companions, Mastiffs are better at guarding. That is because Mastiffs have a much more brave and proud personality than Great Danes. 
If you don't know which breed to choose — take the test on the selection of the breed, and carefully read its description in the Bookipet catalog.
