The Kennel Club admitted Bullmastiff breed (at that time the breed name was written as "Bull-Mastiff") in 1924, however it was formed much earlier.

Any shade of brindle, pale or reddish, however must be clean and without impurities. Small white spot on chest is acceptable. White spots in other places is a defect. The dark mask is required, with typical edging around the eyes, making special expression.
The head is large and square when viewed from any angle, with a few wrinkles when the dog is watchful, but if the dog is calm - they disappear. The girth of skull should be equal to the height at the withers. The skull is broad and deep with well developed cheekbones and distinct stop from the forehead to the muzzle. The muzzle is short; the distance from the tip of the nose to the stop from the forehead to the muzzle is one-third of the total head length from tip of the nose to the occiput.
Eyes are dark or hazel in color, medium-sized, widely set - to the width of the muzzle and separated by median furrow. Light or yellow eyes - is a defect.

The bite is direct, however it can have small overbite, but it is not desirable. The fangs are large, placed wide apart, the other teeth are strong, straight, properly set.
With a good curve, moderate in length, very muscular; the girth is almost equal to the circumference of the skull.
The back is short and straight, making a dog look compact, but not so short as to limit the free movement of the dog. Soft and sunken back - are the defects.
The chest is broad, deep, well omitted, with deep chest bone.
Set high, strong at the base, tapering at the tip; reaches the hock joint in length, keeps straight or slightly curved, but not similar to the Hound manner. The broken tail is a defect.
The widely set forelimbs are strong and straight with sturdy bone present even frontal part. The pasterns are strong and steep. The hind limbs are strong and muscled with well expressed calves, demonstrating strength and activity, but without a trace of awkwardness. The hock joints are slightly sloping.
Bullmastiff is a silent, menacing guard who has a great strength, dexterity, speed and determination. This is a wonderful friend of the family; it is kind and reliable. This is a massive, a bit stocky, but not bulky dog combining grandeur with kindness and courage with gentleness.
