Overview

This volume contains a detailed handbook on the Bull-Mastiff, a large-sized breed of domestic dog developed by 19th-century gamekeepers and descended from the English Mastiff and the extinct Old English Bulldog. It contains chapters on everything from selection and breeding to training and exhibiting, making it a must-have for existing and prospective owners. Contents include: "The Dog Breeder's Handy Calculating Table", "To My Readers", "The Bull-Mastiff's Progenitors", "The Evolution of the Bull-Mastiff", "What Bull-Mastiffs Really Are", "How Bull-Mastiffs Were Produced", "Bull-Mastiffs and Bull-Baiting", "The Canine Structure", "Bull-Mastiffs as Guards", "The Colour Question", "Principal Points of a Dog", "The Birth of the Bull-Mastiff", "The Brood Bitch", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality addition complete with the original text and artwork.
