Did you know that the bullmastiff is the world’s oldest dog breed? No? Well, it’s true. The Bullmastiff is a large, powerful breed of dog that was originally bred in England to help gamekeepers track and catch poachers. It is the oldest natural dog breed in existence and has been around since the days of ancient Egypt. We’re not kidding either. It is believed that the bullmastiff was first bred to protect livestock and guard tombs as far back as 4,000 years ago. In fact, there are even stories of them engaging in combat with lions! They also make great guard dogs due to their strength and determination; they stand their ground when intruders approach their territory. The Bullmastiff is a large brachycephalic dog with short legs, a short neck, and a deep chest. These characteristics enable them to follow game into rugged terrain where other larger dogs wouldn’t be able to keep up. The Bullmastiff can be calm or active based on its surroundings; it either spends most of its time lying down or chasing after whatever crosses its path.

7.Golden Retriever

If you’re looking for the perfect pet, look no further than the Golden Retriever. These dogs are loyal, friendly and affectionate with their families. They are intelligent and eager to learn new things. This breed is a great hunting partner and will always have your back. Given their athletic build and ability to cover long distances quickly, they make an excellent team for field sports such as shooting or hiking with friends. The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States. This is probably because these dogs have a multitude of positive attributes. Golden Retrievers weigh anywhere from 55-75 pounds and stand 21-24 inches tall at the shoulder.

8. American Staffordshire Terrier

The American Staffordshire Terrier is a medium sized breed of dog that was originally bred in England from terrier types that were used for hunting in the forests and fields. They are a small terrier with a soft coat, long legs, and keen intelligence. This breed is also known as the St. Everywhere Terrier because it was originally bred as a catch-dog in English woodlands and fields. St. Everywhere Terriers were often referred to as potty dogs (also called catch dogs). These so-called potty dogs would hunt vermin, including rabbits and foxes, by following their tracks through the mud or snow until they found the animal’s lair where they would pounce on them with barking and growling noises. Because of this, they have been called the “black dog” or “devil dog’ of their time. In addition to being a great hunter, St. Everywhere terriers are also good guard dogs because they won’t bark at strangers even if they are not allowed inside your house. They will only bark if someone tries to enter your premises without permission and then retreat to hide somewhere else in case danger approaches again.

9. Boxer

If you live in the United States, it’s very likely that you know a boxer dog by now. These fun-loving dogs are beloved for their love of play, friendly personalities and calm demeanour around strangers. They’re also called American Staffordshire Terriers — more commonly known as “boxers.” This breed comes from the United Kingdom; however, this is no longer their native land because of the popularity of these dogs among Americans. If you live anywhere in the world, then you’ve probably never heard of a boxer dog before.

10. Mastiff

The Mastiff is a large, powerful dog with a thick coat. It is one of the oldest breeds known to mankind and was developed to hunt wild boar in Asia. The Mastiff stands up to 30 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs upwards of 120 pounds.Mastiffs are very loyal dogs and make wonderful guard dogs if trained properly from a young age. They have instincts that drive them to protect those they love and anything that intrudes upon their space or property is seen as an invader. They also require a lot of socialization from puppyhood until they are adults in order for them not to be frightened of strangers or even familiar ones who come by on occasion. Because of their protective instincts, it’s important for owners to understand what their Mastiff can and cannot handle when it comes to new situations or people they know little about except that they belong with you. With proper training, socialization and patience, your Mastiff will grow into a competent family dog but keep in mind that they may sometimes do things that seem irrational due to their protective instincts without fully understanding why.

All of these breeds make excellent guard dogs but it is important to do your research before getting one to make sure they will be a good fit for your home and lifestyle! Thank you for reading!
