This breed originated In Britain during the 19th century. Mastiffs and Bulldogs were mated to create guard dogs. The owners of big estates had gamekeepers to protect the game on their land from poachers. The Bullmastiff was bred specifically for helping to catch poachers. They were bred for sped, quietness, and the ability to hold the poacher, while waiting for the game warden to get there. The English Kennel Club recognized the BullMastiff in 1924. The American Kennel Club made recognition in 1933.
