Owner: James and Tiffany Ward

Location: Lakeside, Calif.

Dog Name: Jagger

Age: 4

Breed: Bullmastiff

In a Word: Loyal

Job Title: Gatekeeper

Star Quality: Jagger is extremely obedient.

Favorite Reward: Jagger loves to chew on big sticks and eat carrots.

Favorite Activity: He spends his days waiting for delivery people to greet them at the gate.

Favorite Getaway: Walks on the beach and sleeping by the fireplace

Backstory: We purchased Jagger from a breeder when he was a puppy. He had a pretty face. But we quickly learned he was stubborn. We named him Jagger because of his big jowls. Today, he is a loving, obedient dog. We have three other dogs. His self-assigned job is to patrol the property every day and provide daytime security. He lets the other dogs know in his doggy way that he's in charge. Even if one of our other dogs attempts to escape the yard, he will run over and pull them by the collar back into the yard.
