Bloodhound the Brazilian Mastiff Way

Apr 1, 2008
The Brazilian mastiff real name Fila Brasilerio, is a cross between a bloodhound and a mastiff, this mix of breed is specialised in using their nose to sniff and track almost anything. The breed in its early days was used to guard plantations and was introduced to the USA by the Conquistadors.

As mastiffs go this breed is big, they can reach up to 2 feet tall and weigh in at over 100 pounds .The fur ranges from black to tan and even yellow, brindled dogs been high in value. The faculae features are very similar to that of the cross breed the bloodhound.

Very loyal are the mastiff family, but when needed they are capable of been aggressive .on the other side of the coin they are very good with children and make a wonderful family pet's.

hunting comes natural to the Brazilian mastiff because of their bloodhound instincts, the purpose of the mastiff in the hunt is to mainly track the hunted animal , and after capture to hold the animail with causing no damage. Their real name starting with fila means to hold in Portuguese.

protective and loyal are only part of the traits of this breed of mastiff, they are in general a much healthier dog benefiting from been more active and not been prone to been over weight.

One of the downside traits of the mastiff is their dislike for strangers, they have been known to attack for no reason, so be warned if you have a tradesman coming to the house make sure your protective giant is out of the way.

The Brazilian mastiff is like all dogs, they need love and attention and a lot of food, spend time with your dogs and they will become a big part of your family, and I mean a big part. They are loyal and will protect you till the bitter end.

if you are thinking of getting a Brazilian mastiff puppy be sure to do your research, make sure the breeder has a license and will give references if asked, and if you are not sure ask questions.
