Bullmastiff Dog Names

Originating from the United Kingdom, the Bullmastiff is a large-sized breed (although it may not look like it in photos), and is part of what is called the Molosser dog type. Their roots go as far back as the 19th century, where they were employed as the gamekeepers to guard and protect their owners’ estates.
