Description

The wedge-shaped head is medium in length with a pronounced muzzle. It has a broad skull and pronounced cheek bones. The ears are set high. All ear types are allowed. The nose is black, brown or liver colored depending on the pigment. The oval eyes are dark. The muzzle is square, wide and deep with a strong appearance and adjusted flews. It has an undershot or scissors bite and is not faulted for broken teeth. The neck is muscular, slightly arched from the shoulder to the head, tapering and is free from loose skin at the throat. The chest is deep with closed ribs. The thighs are medium in size with well-developed muscles, joints with proper angulation (about 30 degrees), and standing parallel. The joints are fairly steep but not overbuilt. The back is strong with a slightly sloping croup and a slight depression behind the withers. The tail is set low, reaching to the hocks, allowed in all forms, but a straight, intact tail without kinks is preferred. Kinked or deformed tails are docked, but the breed is not to be altered in any other way (no ear cropping or dewclaw removal). The longhaired coat is thick and often appears as feathering around the ears, back of the legs and tail. All coat colors are allowed, but pure white dogs are excluded from breeding.

Temperament

The Mammut Bulldog is loyal, bold and fearless. It is confident and intelligent with a strong character. This breed has a moderate to high prey drive. It excels in many sports and makes a good working dog, from agility to protection training and beyond. It is a nice family dog making an excellent companion. This breed is good with children. It has a high pain tolerance. Owners need to take a determined, consistent, loving approach while remaining calm. If the dog senses you are weaker minded than he is, he will become stubborn, as he will believe it is his job to run the home. They make wonderful pets for the assertive owner who displays the right amount of leadership. Proper human to canine communication is essential.

Living Conditions

The Mammut Bulldog does best living indoors close to its family. Unlike many other types of Bulldogs, the Mammut Bulldog can tolerate a wider range of colder and warmer temperatures.

Exercise

This breed needs to be taken on a daily walk. While out on the walk the dog must be made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as in a dog's mind the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human. These dogs do best with active families and make great working dogs.

Litter Size

Grooming

The short coat is easy to groom. Comb and brush with a firm bristle brush, and bathe only when necessary. This breed is an average shedder.
