    Pitbull Mastiff Mix is a cross of a Pitbull and a Mastiff, also known as Pit Mastiff or American Masti-Bull. They are relatively large, as a result of being a mastiff mix, around 25 to 29 inches. The lifespan of a Mastiff Pitbull mix is between 8 to 12 years.

    The Pitbull Mastiff also goes by these other names as:

    • Bullmastiff Pitbull Mix
    • American Bandogge
    Things You Need to Know About The Pitbull Mastiff Mix:

    1. Pitbull Mastiffs can come from a number of different crosses
    2. These are large dogs – who need a lot of space!
    3. Their coat can vary – but it’s not high maintenance!
    4. They’re not for newbies
    5. They make great guard dogs
    6. They can be dog reactive

    The Pitbull Mastiff is a fantastic dog for the right owner. If you have a spacious house, experience handling dogs, and you’d like a guard dog or a loyal companion for a family with older children, she could be the right fit for you. Just remember, she needs lots of socialization, with canines and humans alike, and you should use a firm, consistent training approach.

    I have over 30 years experience with these breeds and I can tell you different. First off, the variety of Pits being crossed with Mastiffs and most of them the UKC wouldn't even register as pits, already have a variety of mastiff breeds in them thanks to the ADBA. That being said, you can find a Pit just as lazy and sweet as an English Mastiff or Bullmastiff and you're just going to get a big lazy house dog that may or may not drool all over the place. As far as someone breeding a 50 lb red nose with an English Mastiff, I don't see it happening and even if it did Swinford proved along time ago that you don't get a dog as good as either. Now if that 50lb red nose happens to be from game lines and studs a French Mastiff, then you just may have a serious problem. Prey drive through the roof and man agression with huge head are not a good combination. I seen someone try this with a French Mastiff and a Rottweiler and rank agression in a stubborn mastiff is no picnic.
