A bullmastiff

The bullmastiff is a breed of dog. It started in 19th-century England. It is a mixture of a bulldog and a mastiff. It has a short tan, reddish brown coat with black on the face and ears. It stands 24 to 27 inches (61 to 69 cm) and weighs 95 to 130 pounds (43 to 59 kg). Bullmastiffs were originally used to discourage poaching and are now also used by police and as guard dogs.[1]
