There are many theories about the origin of this breed. According to the most logical theory there was already a Mastiff breed present in sub-continent of Indo-Pakistan which was used for hunting, guarding and many other purposes. When Britain conquered the sub-continent of Indo-Pakistan, the British soldiers brought their Mastiff type dogs, Bull Terriers and other breeds along with them. These dogs were crossed with the local breed. And that’s why there are different types of Bully Kuttas (Pakistani Mastiffs). There is a theory that this breed was originated in the desert areas of Sindh. That's why it is also called a "Sindh Mastiff." They are a Molosser type dog from Pakistan and are largely found in that region. The word "Bully" comes from the root word of Punjabi (a language spoken by inhabitants of the historical Province of Punjab of Pakistan) "Bohli" which is pronounced as "Boo-Lee" means "heavily wrinkled." And Kutta is a word of Punjabi or Urdu language which means "dog." Thus, Bully Kutta means "heavily wrinkled dog."
