This breed originated on the Spanish island of Majorca. Primarily created for dog fighting and bull-baiting, this breed’s numbers dwindled when these practices were outlawed. While the Majorca Mastiff is still maintained by Spanish breeders, it remains rare.
This breed has many additional names, including Ca de Bou, Malloquin Mastiff, Mallorquin Bulldog, Perro Dogo Mallorquin, Majorcan Bulldog, and Perro de Presa Mallorquin.
These independent and strong-willed dogs can be very dominating and combative. As such, this breed is somewhat controversial.
