When the Romans invaded Britain over two thousand years ago, they were faced with warlike tribes who owned large broad - mouthed short - faced dogs which they used effectively as war dogs.
Roman poets wrote ‘they were fiercer than the war dogs of Greece’, and some were brought from Greece and crossed with the British breeds. After the Roman conquest, these British dogs were distributed throughout the Roman empire to be bred for use in their ampitheatres.
Spain was the country where these dogs truly proliferated and the Conquistadores used these dogs (who remained huge and were basically black or black and tan) to murderous effect when conquering South America.
