The Golden Bullmastiff Retriever is hybrid of two large dogs, the Bullmastiff and the Golden Retriever. The hybrid is a modern dog with minimal documented history or information. Owners interested in understanding the potential characteristics and traits of the Golden Bullmastiff Retriever will have to look at the parent breeds for insight as not much else is currently known. It is currently unknown if the Golden Bullmastiff is recognized by any registries or clubs. The Golden Retriever is one of the top dogs chosen by families in North America today. Developed in Scotland as a retriever and hunter, it is thought that a variety of breeds were utilized to make this agile and intelligent canine, including the Wavy-Coated Retriever, the Tweed Water Spaniel (now extinct), the Red Setter, and the Yellow Retriever. A gentle, calm, and loyal dog indoors, this breed was also an expert in the hunting field. The American Kennel Club added the Golden Retriever to its roster in 1925. The Bullmastiff is a relatively new breed having developed in England during the 19th Century. English gamekeepers who had trouble with poachers needed an aggressive dog who could overpower a man and keep him pinned down. English Mastiffs had the size but lacked the energy or aggression required and English Bulldogs had the tenacity but lacked the size. The intentional breeding of the English Mastiff and the English Bulldog resulted in the modern-day Bullmastiff, who is not as large as his Mastiff ancestors but is strong and quick enough to run a man down. As poaching declined in England, the Bullmastiff turned its attention to guarding, and the 20th Century the hybrid Bullmastiff become a recognized breed. The American Kennel Club recognized the first Bullmastiff, named Fascination of Felons Fear in 1934.
