The Mastiff is a large, massive, symmetrical dog with a well-knit frame. The impression is one of
grandeur and dignity. Males are more massive throughout. Females should not be faulted for
being somewhat smaller in all dimensions while maintaining a proportionally powerful structure.
The Mastiff needs lots of exercise and should be kept in firm shape. But you should be careful not
to over exercise, especially in his first year. The Mastiff is a sensitive, tender, laid back companion.
A combination of grandeur and good nature, courage and docility. Dignity, rather than gaiety, is
the Mastiff's correct demeanor.
