  • Can you imagine the bravery of the dogs that were used in these bear hunts. To see an animal 6 times their size and still seize upon it. What heart they had.  Very few dogs today would take up this challenge.

    • Yes, they were more brave up to the addition of "alpine mastiff blood" to the Mastiff to increase the size, genetically is more molosser the current bulldog than the Mastiff, for a small DNA advantage, second is the Boxer, and third the Mastiff which is now equal to the bullterrier miniature. Genetics speaks... and put away historic references.

    • The Tosa absorbed the best of the molosser bloods, and most be similar to the current Mastiff in their genetics, because the base was an Akita like spitz dog. That means that the Tosa has primitive wolfish and molosser blood like the Bulldog.

I decided to just randomly see if molosserdogs was still around, fearing the worst, but wow, looks good.  Maybe some controversial debate will help liven the place up a bit? lol Over the last few years I've been continuing my recreational research into dogs and dog history (which has now spanned many decades), and I've stumbled onto a realization that "mastiffs" basically don't exist and never did.   Hear me out...  I believe the mastiff category is merely comprised of retired dogs from various other functional types. They have no real genetic foundation making them a group and no real ancestral function. If you n
