Around 326 BC Alexander the Great received as a gift from the King of Albania one or more mastiff-type dogs. Alexander the Great would first use these dogs for hunting small game. The dogs seem to just not want to do that and Alexander the Great killed the dogs because of their "laziness". The king of Albania sent Alexander one or more new dogs together with the instruction the dog not to waste on something so small and simple as small game hunting. The instruction was to the dog to fight with Lions and Elephants. According to the story Alexander the Great let the first dog fight with a lion . The dog had the back of the lion broken within a few seconds. Later he let the dog fight against an elephant. The elephant was so panicked by the incessant attacks of the dog that he dropped himself into an abyss. Alexander the Great was then partly been responsible for spreading the Assyrian and Albanian dogs on other continents, such as modern Europe.
