YAXS: Greek molosser dogs (Redesign)

Posted by: souidason 2007/5/26 13:58:56 6836 reads This is the redesign of the web site of "Greek Molosser" breeds that they called: "Molossos of the Epir".

Now is an English version too together with the Greek.

Molosser is a name for a group comprising several breeds of large, solidly-built dogs, probably all descended from the same root stock. The name derives from Molossia, a country once located in Western Greece.

Molossers are sometimes called "mastiffs." The proper noun "Mastiff," however, is used to refer to the English Mastiff, a breed that originated in England over two thousand years ago. Other terms include "Mastín" (Spanish), "dogge" (Germanic) and "dogue" or "dogo" (romance languages).

Molossers typically have heavy bones, pendant ears, a relatively short and well-muscled neck, and a short muzzle. Although some Molossers are used for search and rescue.
