In ancient times, mastiff-like dogs lived on the territory of Pakistan and India, which the locals used as defenders, guards, and hunters. In the 17th century, with the beginning of the colonial conquest, the British began to bring bulldogs and mastiffs with them, which interbred with local dogs. As a result of such a union, the Bully Kutta dog breed appeared in its modern form. By the way, in Hindi, “bully” means “wrinkled”, and “Kutta” means “dog”, that is, the name of the breed literally translates as “wrinkled dog”. This breed is also called the Pakistani Mastiff.
A trained Pakistani mastiff is a calm and balanced dog. She affectionately and reverently treats all family members, although there is still one leader for her. But, if the pet feels danger, he will stand up for his “flock” to the last. That is why representatives of the breed need early socialization. The dog should not overreact to passing cars, cyclists, or animals.
Bully Kutta is neutral to the neighborhood with other pets. A warm relationship will certainly arise if the puppy appears in a house where there are already animals. But you have to be very careful: by negligence, the dog can easily injure smaller neighbors.
Communication with children should always be supervised by adults. If in a family where there is a Bully Kutta, the birth of a child is planned, the dog must be prepared for the appearance of the baby.
The Shorthaired Pakistani Mastiff does not require much grooming. It is enough to wipe the dog once a week with a damp towel or just with your hand to remove the fallen hairs. Bathing these giants is not accepted.
It is recommended to cut nails monthly.
Conditions of detention
Bully Kutta does not apply to dogs that can live in an apartment: for representatives of this breed, such conditions can be a difficult test. They need their own space and active daily walks, the duration of which should be at least 2-3 hours.
The Pakistani mastiff is suitable for keeping outside the city, in a private house. A free enclosure and access to the yard for outdoor walks will make him truly happy.
