Neapolitan Mastiff...


The Neapolitan Mastiff is a large, ancient dog breed that can be traced back to about 168BC. This massive breed is often used as a guard and defender of family and property due to the protective instincts and their fearsome appearance. The Neapolitan Mastiff is a descendant of the Molossus. Not many decades ago, "molossian of Epirus" was still a term to be found in some Greek glossaries on dog breeds. The Neapolitan Mastiff is fearless and extremely protective of its home and family. They prefer to be with their family and to remain in and around the home always.

Due to the extensive wrinkles and large body mass of the more "overdone" type, these Neapolitan Mastiffs will require extra care and maintenance as far as bathing and cleaning the face and body. Neapolitan Mastiff are droolers and if the wrinkles are not cared for properly the Neapolitan Mastiff will smell. The Neapolitan Mastiff is an average shedder with a short, dense coat. The coat is best kept clean and shiny by using a rubber brush to remove dead hair.
