Hi I was wondering what the difference between an Old English Mastiff and English Mastiff. I use to think there was no difference But now I'm startng to wonder. My vet and a few older breeders have told me that my Pearl is an Old English Mastiff thats why she looks diffrent than the other English Mastiffs. Other ones do seem to look more like an American Mastiff to me. Please look at her pics and tell me what you think. My web site is *******

First of all Welcome to MOC! Secondly, your dogs are gorgeous.

Im new to the breed, but it is my understanding that OEM, EM, and Mastiff are all the same. Mastiff is the name that is recognized by the Breed Standard @ AKC.

American mastiffs are cross-breeds. Mastiff w/ Anatolian Shepards.

Mastiff, English Mastiff and Old English Mastiff are all the same breed. American Mastiff is not.

Thanks! She looks different from the ones around here. She has a bigger head, shorter nose and a lot more wringles. The ones I see here have no wringles and lonnger noses and shes bigger than ones older than her. Why?

Welcome to MOC! My only thougth is that dogs are like people, each is different, and it all depends on the lineage. Many mature differently at different rates, some are taller, some are shorter. Some have more wrinkles, some are fluffies, etc, etc. Genetics are a funny thing. She is a pretty girl that you have!

I have heard people speak of 'typey' mastiffs and understood that these are the larger boned, wrinklier mastiffs.....same dogs, just different look. Your dogs are gorgeous!!!!

I don't see that your dogs look any different than other dogs here.... Of course there are a lot of different "looks" represented on MOC. Not all pet quality Mastiffs meet the
