If you want to welcome a really large and intelligent dog, you have found your match – Spanish Mastiff is for you.

This is a very intelligent dog who can physically overcome any owner if not trainer right.

They are rustic but equally affectionate. This breed will always be gentle toward his humans, and fearless toward the unknown, both people and animals.

They were bred to defend and protect cattle and farms, which means that they take protection seriously. This isn’t a breed to mess around with.

You can either handle owning this breed or not. This means that Spanish Mastiff isn’t for first time dog owners, but for experienced owners who know how to handle large dog breeds.

They come with massive power that needs to be controlled. This is a dog of massive size, very muscular, and well-balanced.

They have surprisingly low-pitched bark. They come in many colors, including fawn, red, black, gray, yellow, or brindle.

They can often have white markings. This breed is always ready to please his humans, and will easily step in to fight wolves if needed.

Crosspassing isn’t an option when this breed is on the watch.
