Neapolitan Mastiff

The Neapolitan Mastiff dog breed was developed in southern Italy as a family and guard dog. Today this massive breed is known as a gentle giant. Some fans of the breed affectionately call them the Neo, and others know them as Mastino. Although these are purebred dogs, you may still find them in shelters and rescues. Remember to adopt! Don’t shop if this is the breed for you. Neapolitan Mastiffs may not be the best choice for novice dog parents or apartment dwellers. Their massive size means they need space and confident training to thrive. However, if you can handle their needs and a bit of drool, you’ll find an affectionate, loyal companion who loves the whole family!
