Mastiff Pitbull mixes are large dogs that take physical traits from both the Pitbull and Mastiff parent.
The two-parent breeds have a somewhat similar build and physical features which makes it easier to predict what the Pitbull Mastiff mix will look like compared to other designer doggies.
Here are some of these defining physical features of a Mastiff Pitbull:
Mastiff Pitbull mixes weigh between 100 to 140 lbs and measure 25 to 29 inches tall.They get this large size from the Mastiff parents that are themselves considered giant dog breeds.
However, it is possible to have a Mastiff Pitbull weighing as heavy as 60 lbs which is still heavier than most Pitbulls.
Compact, Muscular Build
Here, the Mastiff Pitbull resembles both the parents with their muscular build. They are for the most part proportionally built but may have slightly short legs especially if the Mastiff is mixed with Pitbull varieties like the American Bully and the Staffordshire Terrier.
Short, Smooth Coat
The coat is another feature common to the Mastiff and Pitbull breeds. The resulting mix will have the same short, smooth, and straight fur that these parents have. Color coat variation is also more or less the same with most being either black, red, or brown.
Most Mastiff Pitbull mixes have a large head that is very similar to Pitbull breeds. The ears are usually wide set and may either be upright or semi-upright with the top half drooping forwards or sideways.
Besides the large droopy ears, they may also inherit other droopy features of the Mastiff including saggy cheek skin, and facial folds.
