History of the breed

Dog fighting was also very popular in England, especially around the beginning of the 18th century. This is why several Mallorcan Mastiffs, having benefited from contributions of British guard and fighting dogs, were brought back to England. The first registration of a dog of this breed in the Spanish Book of Origins was recorded in 1929. The breed of the Mastiff of Mallorca was definitively recognized by the FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale) on September 21, 1963.
