Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
I don't have a clue what breed it is, but that is one seriously tough looking customer!
Canary Mastiff - Perro de Presa Canario. Large but not giant. "Suspicious, Strong Willed, Dominant, Gentle, Calm" Look like he got 4 out of 5.

Seems that the dogs were really not to blame but the owners, actually the previous owners, for tying them on short chains in a remote part of a farm. No social interaction, no time to become "civilized".....and being territorial, she wandered into the right place at the wrong time.I am in firm belief that there is no such thing as a bad dog, only bad owners.
"The dogs escaped her control and attacked Whipple"Hey , Coffee man- Facts are facts, no matter what you believe.
Some breeds of dog just get bad press every time they kill someone..
If y'all will read just that Wikipedia piece (there's a lot more info available,) you'll see that the dogs were raised by a "high-ranking Aryan Brotherhood member" currently serving multiple life terms for murders. His lawyers took in the dogs and kept them in a San Francisco apartment building.Pretty obvious to me that the dogs were doing what they'd been taught to do. Keeping a trained attack dog in a city apartment building is and should be considered a criminal act.
Cuts down on the recidivism problem of the local burglars. Saves on dog food too!
hound of the Baskerville... from my nightmares.
Wasn't he in the movie "Omen"?
My guess is either a Dogo Argentino or a Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff)
I told ya not to feed them steroids to the chihuahua :-(
I'm still amazed that this dog and other large breeds share a common wolf ancestor with Chihuahuas, Pekineses, Yorkies, etc.
And this was the runt of the litter....
"Mr. Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound!" ..
No idea. Now, if you’ll excuse me, gotta go.
