The Neapolitan Mastiff is a serious, powerful dog with abundant, hanging wrinkles and folds on the huge head and very large dewlap. They are very keen to their owners' commands. Intelligent, very protective courageous, serious and mild mannered. Generally quiet, they tend to only bark when necessary. Socialize this breed while they are young.

This is a natural guard dog and protection training is not necessary. You cannot breed out the guard in this dog. If they sense there is a thread to the home they will react, unless the owner is there and tells them that everything is ok.

Today this powerful breed has a well-deserved reputation as a formidable guard dog. Neos have been used by Italian police and army to protect estates, business establishments, people and their property. This loyal, loving and protective giant is truly a breed on its own!.

The Neapolitan Mastiff , Italian Mastiff , Mastino or Mastini (plural) is a large, ancient dog breed . 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 breed is reported to have been used to fight alongside the Roman Legions , by having bladed and spiked leather harnesses tied to their backs and being trained to run under the bellies of enemy horses, to disembowel them.
