From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Abruzzese Mastiff (Mastino Abruzzese-sometimes also called Pastore Abruzzese, and known as "cane di Pecora" in the Abruzzi region) is a breed related to, but distinct from the Maremmano-Abruzzese (commonly called Maremma Sheepdogs in America) from the Italian region of Abruzzi. The Maremmano-Abruzzese is a dog created by the fusion of two disctinct strains of flock guardian dogs the Maremmano and the Abruzzese. The Mastino Abruzzese represents the original Abruzzese strain and is characterized by its larger size, some male dogs reportedly exceeding 100 kg (220 lbs) in size. Some of these dogs have been successfully employed as Livestock Guardian Dogs in the United States and in Norway, where reportedly they were effective in deterring predation by bears.
