Troops with the 69th have lead the parade since 1851.Also called English mastiffs, they’re about 27-32 inches in height and range from 130 to a whopping 220 pounds.Even though they’re prone to escaping and hard to train, the effort is worth it to enjoy these smart, loving creatures.Far from jealous, they’re okay with new people and other animals—for the most part.
You could guess by looking at this breed that it’s one of the tallest in the species.
They have gentle, happy dispositions if trained well, and their naturally protective instinct makes them terrific watchdogs.
Unlike the Pyrenees, they scare with their looks, not their barks.
If and when you do get a new dog, make sure that you research the type of training the particular breed requires so that you can provide your pet with the tools he needs to be a well-behaved, loving member of your family.
