Neapolitan Mastiff Dogs

Neapolitan Mastiff is captivating and commanding.
He is massive and strong, and has nostrils that flare and a broad flat skull with wrinkles and folds.

The Neapolitan Mastiff is unsurpassed as defender of home and property. However, he is never aggressive or tenacious with people. He is docile and even tempered making him a great companion.
