Bully Kutta is a rare dog breed from Southern India, from the Thanjavur and Tiruchi districts. "Bully" in its name actually comes from the Hindi word bohli—meaning heavily wrinkled, and "Kutta" means dog. They are used as fighting dogs in Pakistan and are excellent guard dogs. The Bully Kutta or Indian Mastiff is sometimes referred to as the Bully Cutha, Sindh Mastiff, South Asian Mastiff or Pakistani Bully Dog. They were developed during the British Colonial rule in India and were used primarly for sporting purposes. They are typically found today in areas belonging to Pakistan.
