Mastiff type means a large molosser dog. The head is broad and massive, and a wrinkled forehead accentuates an alert, kindly expression. He is affectionate with his family and always wants to be with them, but he doesn’t constantly demand attention. Eternally loyal Mastiffs are protective of family, and a natural wariness of strangers makes early training and socialization essential. Mastiffs have moderate exercise needs.
