Broholmer (Danish Mastiff)


The Broholmer, aka the Danish Mastiff, is a goodnatured and observant dog that needs to be led by a strong master. It can be a good family dog, as long as the master can display that he or she is the pack leader; if not, the Broholmer may start to consider itself in charge.
