Since ancient times, the countries of the Mediterranean communicated with each other by sea, which is how they shared their cultural and scientific knowledge. These exchanges were mostly commercial in nature, but domesticated animals were also traded, including dogs that were needed to protect communities and ports from pirates and robbers. Such dogs were generally big, strong and robust animals with solid heads and powerful jaws, but one type was especially sought after: a mastiff from Spain used for hunting, bull baiting and dog fighting. These dogs accompanied King James I of Aragon on the conquest of the Balearic Islands around 1230. After the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, the islands were awarded to the British.
