Breed Info

The Neapolitan Mastiff is descended from the Tibetan Mastiff through the large Roman Molossians described by agronomist Columella in the first century. This breed fought with the Roman legions and was spread throughout Europe during the Roman invasion. Has also been used as a circus dog. The breed is the progenitor of many mastiff breeds in other Europian countries, and has survived for centuries. Spanish Mastiff Blood was later introduced and the breed has been selectively bred since 1947. The coat is short , harsh, thick and smooth and the preferred colouring is grey, lead grey and black, brown, fawn, stag-red, sometimes with white on chest and feet. Bitches weigh in from 50 to 60 kg and dogs 50 to 70 kg. Size: dogs 65 to 75 and bitches 60 to 68 cm. Formidable in appearance and even more fearsome if provoked. Not aggressive and will not bite without cause. Calm, loyal, devoted, very affectionate and gentle with children. Suitable as a guard or police dog as well as a pet.
