Dignified yet devoted, the American Mastiff is a great family dog. They love children and are protective of their family, but not aggressive. This makes them a good watchdog but a poor guard dog. While they are mastiff, and are thus large and droopy, they drool less than other mastiff breeds. They can be fine apartment companions, provided they get plenty of exercise daily. The American Mastiff was developed in Ohio by crossing an English Mastiff and an Anatolian Mastiff which resulted in the massive, but less drooly dog.
