I had rather see the portrait of a dog that I know, than all the allegorical paintings they can show me in the world.

Sycalcade's Enchanted Moment
"Ellie"

Developed in England in the late nineteenth century, the Bullmastiff is a cross between the Mastiff and the Bulldog.  

Bred to warn the gamekeeper of poachers who would rather kill than face the death penalty for poaching, the Bullmastiff can attack and hold a poacher without harming him.  

This dog is a natural guardian and will not back down from a fight. He has been used as a police, guard, and army dog.

The Bullmastiff shows great strength, endurance and alertness.  He combines power, speed, and a keen sense of smell with courage and aggression.  His temperament is affectionate towards his owner.  He is a very gentle, calm, and devoted companion but also a fearless guardian.

The Bullmastiff is a compact and powerful dog standing 25 to 27 inches at the shoulder and weighing up to 130 lbs. Grooming is minimal as the coat is short. The Bullmastiff has a black face mask and the coat may be red, fawn, or brindle. The most common colour is now fawn although gamekeepers once preferred brindle as the dog became almost invisible at night. Attacking silently and on command, the Bullmastiff could take down a poacher before he could even reach for his gun.

Although the Bullmastiff is not a high-energy dog, he should have lots of exercise and a balanced diet to prevent a tendency to obesity. Bullmastiffs need a strong, confident master. Training should begin early. Bullmastiffs are intelligent, obedient dogs who make superb guard and watchdogs.

According to tests 
conducted by the 
Institute for the Study of Animal Problems in Washington D.C., 
dogs and cats, like people, are either right-handed or left-handed; 
that is, they favor either their right or left paws.
