Molosser dogs received special recognition from ancient Persians who thought these animals a symbol of wealth, prosperity and authority. Old Persian scientists and philosophers, including Zoroaster, saw fine ability to study in these dogs, but Ancient Romans put value upon well-developed fighting qualities of these dogs, their bravery, but as well as hard musculature and strong powerful skeleton: body composition of molossers preferably set them apart from other dogs and made them surely be superior in strength and rate of speed.

Molosser dogs, also known as Epirus ones, were used by Babylonians and Assyrians mainly for safe-keeping of dwellings and big-game hunting. It was a popular belief In Assyria that earthen small sculptures, representing mastiff similar dogs and which were placed at the entrance of the house, have a big magical power at that protecting the house from fiends.

According to the testimony of historians, Molosser dogs appeared in the territory of ancient Rome in 1 st century A.D., when troops under a leadership of Claudius August were moving on one of the ways leading to Europe. Roman legion participated in lasting military operations in the territory of Europe, Northern Africa and Asia Minor and in order to provide sufficient amount of food, legionaries took along cows, goats which followed an army moving to the sites of the battles.

Large mastifflike dogs, having wonderful patrol qualities, as a rule, were used for convoying and guarding of cattle.

When military trek was almost over, the livestock of caws and goats driven next to the troops were reduced and consequently there was no necessity for big number of dogs anymore. Thus, a considerable percentage of dogs belonging to the legionaries were given to inhabitants of that region which they passed, and molosses were gradually spreading over both farm settlements and cities. Period of this housing of mastiff-type representatives lasted for several centuries.


The rocky mountain contour laced with patches of highland grass has changed little since the Roman defeat of the native Caledonians in 83 A.D., and even today, the rugged topography presents a challenge for modern-day police to patrol. The local police jurisdiction is also responsible for an area called the Royal Deeside where Queen Elizabeth and her royal family stay when they return to enjoy the beauty of Scotland.

Chest-deep in water, Victoria shouted to the man to let Senga go, but he could not hear her. Fighting the strong incoming tide, Victoria swam under the bridge and came out the other side, but she was dressed in full police uniform and wore two large heavy boots that impeded her progress. The river was quite deep in parts, and the weight of her full body armor made it impossible to swim out to her dog. She fought to keep her head and shoulders above water in the swift tide and finally found a large stone in the river bed to stand upon, but that was as far as she dared go.
