Not often do you see a Mastiff type breed get that high. It’s good to know that they’re still some really athletic and capable dogs out there. This Bull Mastiff is more the “Exception, rather than the rule” considering Mastiff breeds but I’ll take him any day.

.

.

Anyone can credit this picture and/or lead me towards information in finding out more about this dog would be much appreciated.

Historical accounts of dog fighting in the US …

Historical accounts of dog fighting in the US can be dated back a hundred or more years before the Civil War began but the betting and spectator sport of dog fighting would take off shortly after the Civil War ended. As immigrants made their way from England and Ireland to start a new life in America, they brought over with them dogs that were already flourishing in an underground fighting world after Bull and Bear baiting became illegal in the 1830’s.

.
.

Many of these dogs would eventually be crossbred to other game terriers to create the ultimate fighter: the American Pit Bull Terrier.
With many professional pits proliferating the America’s in the 1860’s, ironically dog fighting grew and continued to flourish well into the 20th century as a common entertainment with widespread support from the general public as well as elected officials and police officers and firemen with the “Police Gazette” serving as a major source of information into dog fighting for many years thereafter.

.
.

With concerns about the inhumanness of dogfighting most states would eventually outlaw the activity and criminally incriminate those that did not stop. Henry Bergh, founder of the ASPCA, would spearhead this endeavor as he was repulsed by the brutality of the dog fighting he saw in New York and elsewhere. He would revise the states animal cruelty law in 1867 which would make all forms of animal fighting illegal for the first time, including bull, bear, dog and cock fighting.

.
.

The sad but definite truth was the involvement of police officials in dog fighting activity and this was one of the reasons Bergh sought and received authority for the ASPCA at the time to have arrest powers for his own humane law enforcement agents to enforce these tough new laws.

This original Shar-Pei come from the Guandong …

This original Shar-Pei come from the Guandong province of China. The Cantonese equivalent, sā pèih, which translates to “sand skin” refers to the texture of its short, rough coat.

.
.

The Shar-Pei from China looks very different from the dog we’ve become accustomed to. In the West, the pursuit of a wrinkle Dog was of the utmost importance mainly for its appeal to the western world. People from China differentiate the Western style and called them “Meat-mouths” while the original type known as “bone mouthed” that still hails in its native country is sleeker, tighter skinned and more dog aggressive.

.
.

As puppies, Shar Pei’s have numerous wrinkles, but as they mature, their skin tightens and spread out as they “grow into their skin.” The Shar Pei’s loose skin and extremely prickly coat were originally developed to help fend off wild boar, while hunting.

.
.

As the breed grew in its popularity, it was used for dog fighting and with this enhanced trait of extra wrinkle skin and ferocity to fight, it made for a difficult opponent. It is believed with its extra skin when another dog would grab hold, it would manage to maneuver and bite back to fight by actually twisting in their skin and face in their opponent’s direction.

.
.

Today in modern day Tibet, they are still actively fighting the breed, mostly the “bone-mouth” type.

Humans do a fantastic job at making things more complicated than it should be. Ownership of a dog should not be stressful.

On our walk we met a wonderful gentleman that owns a Maremma Sheepdog 🐑 from Italy. It’s so cool to see #breedsofpurpose living here in the States. I surprised the gentleman as I knew what breed was and he was floored.
