The Blonde Mastiff is a massive guard dog that is today bred primarily by nobles and merchants. The average specimen stands nearly three feet tall at the shoulder and weighs around 200 pounds, though some large males have been known to reach 250 pounds.

These impressive and loyal dogs generally have yellowish, golden, or blonde coats, though silver sometimes occurs. Their heads are typical for a mastiff – compact and powerful, with short, blunt muzzles, high foreheads, and drooping ears.

This breed is an excellent guard dog, guarding both home and flock loyally. Blonde Mastiffs will fight to the death to defend their master.
