The type was established fairly quickly and the breed Standard is in the works. The Benson Bulldogge is a massive and powerful mastiff, bred for tenacity and stamina. Extremely dog-aggressive, this mastiff needs proper socialization and responsible handling. Loyal and trainable, it makes an amenable companion, but is best suited for working homes. The tail is docked for work.
The medium-length coat is thick and flat, accepted in all colours. Size can vary greatly, from 24 inches to 30 inches at the withers.
