History

Found in Britain as early as the Roman invasion, the Noble Old English Mastiff was probably
brought to that island by Phoenician traders as early as the 6th century BC. Since then, the
Mastiff has been used as an arena gladiator by the Romans, in the sport of bull, bear and
dog combat, and as a sheep guardian, bodyguard, protector, and companion.
