When discussing Bullmastiffs, we are necessarily speaking of large dogs; dogs will weight some 60 kilos as adults and females some 45 to 50 kilos as they reach their physical maturity.

Nevertheless what calls our attention the most is, always, their immense, compact, squared and huge heads, fitted with a square, strong and wide black muzzle. Head and muzzle fit into a strong, wide neck that meets with a deep wide chest. All these features speak of the extraordinary strength and power of this dog.

Other than this, the Bullmastiff is a dog with a rather short and squared body, supported by strong and bony fore and hindquarters with moderate angulation that stand on four cat-like strong rounded feet. The tail is relatively long reaching the hock, wide in its base, a tail that the dog uses as a rudder so to say, in order to better control the movement of the whole body at run or at jump, when the animal needs to stand on the hindquarters and leap on its enemy, whether another animal or man, knock it down and bring it to a complete stand.
