Is the Majorca Mastiff right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Ca de Bou; Perro de Presa Mallorquin; Perro Dogo Mallorquin; Majorcan Bulldog; Mallorquin Bulldog

The basics:
The Majorca Mastiff was developed in the 19th century on the Spanish island of Majorca in the Mediterranean. Originally, it was widely used in the sports of bullbaiting and dog fighting, which means that it was bred to be tenacious, courageous, and not particularly sensitive to pain. While the properly socialized Majorca Mastiff can make a loyal family protection animal, it has no place in the hands of irresponsible or inexperienced dog owners. If you don't know how to establish yourself as a respectful but consistent alpha to a large guardian dog, pass on this breed.

Because of its size and obvious mastiff appearance, it's possible that this breed will be subject to bans in some areas. Check your local codes to be certain you are allowed to own the Majorca Mastiff.

Appearance / health:
The Majorcan Bulldog is a powerful mastiff of medium size. The jaw muscles are strong and protruding. The nose is black and broad. The oval eyes are large, clearly outlined, and slightly slanted. The skin is close fitting except on the neck, where a slight dewlap may occur.

Behavior / temperament:
Like many other mastiffs, the Majorca Mastiff is described as a family-first animal that will fearlessly defend its own. This independent-minded breed must be properly socialized from an early age.
