The Bully Kutta or Pakistani Mastiff or simply Bully is a descendant of the extinct Alaunt that originated from the Sindh and Punjab regions of Pakistan, where they are the most common guard-dog. Some can be found in India, but they are rarer there. The word Bully derives from the English word Bull, because of its resemblance to the Bulldog, while the word Kutta means dog in South-Asian languages.
The Bully Kutta is predominantly white in color, however fawn, brindle, brown, black and various bicolors are also common. Generally, a Bully Kutta stands 24"-30" tall. They are known for their large heads, strong bone structure, and loose, stretchy skin.
A Bully Kutta's temperament ranges in variety. However, the breed is generally docile. Training them and introducing them to family early on in puppyhood is recommended. It is a very smart dog and can easily be trained. They are loyal and protective of its master, their family, and their master's belongings.
