Is American Mastiff Playful?
Considering to adopt an American Mastiff and want to know whether American Mastiff is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to pet experts, American Mastiff Dogs score 0 out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we adore about dogs is their playfulness. But some breeds are typically more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a good time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the dog breeds that tend to be the most fun loving. It's important to bear in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, usually need lots of physical and mental stimulation so they don't become bored.
You should keep in mind that all dogs are individuals - not all Labs are obsessed with playing fetch, and there are most likely even some Portuguese Water Dogs who don't like water.
Obviously, with any of these breeds, a dog's health and age will influence his level of liveliness. So even with these breeds, you should have a vet examine your pet dog to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.
