Molossers Dog Group

Molossers crossed with other breeds created diverse descendents. The cross of the molossers with the sighthound produced dogs such as the Deerhound and the Irish wolfhound. Crossings of Terrier type dogs produced the Bull Terrier and the Staffordshire terrier. Other molossers descendents or acromegalics were trail dogs, large heavy dogs, such as the Blood-hound, the Basset hound, and other continental breeds. These dogs have large jaws, chins and long droopy ears. Following these types are the Beagle, more familiar and light, the Foxhounds and Coonhounds.
