The Brazilian Bullmastiff, sometimes called Brazilian Bandogge, is a recently developed breed created by Mr. Rui Brossard. Thie breed was a result of crossing the American Pit Bull Terrier at its base then adding in Fila Brasileiro, English Bullmastiff and a small percentage of Tosa Inu. Later the Dogue de Bordeaux was also added to the mix.
This breed was developed to be very aggressive for the purpose of guard work and has little tolerance for strangers. Alternatively, it is highly loyal to its family companions out of its natural instinct for guarding.
Due to its developing nature, the breed style lacks a uniform conformation. What is expected thus far in the development is that the ears remain uncropped, and the nose should be black or red.
Because the breed shares much of the same history as other molosser breeds, it is not a surprise that it bears a strong resemblance to the American Pit Bull Terrier. As such, this breed can be considered a good candidate in the now developing American Bully breed.
