Neapolitan Mastiff

The Neapolitan Mastiff is perhaps one of the most recognisable dogs in the world. It is known primarily by the rather "droopy" appearance of its face and this is complimented by a large size. Due to this unique appearance and a stocky build, this breed is frequently used in private security roles. This is an animal which requires a good deal of attention and skill to train properly. As with most mastiffs, this dog is known to be quite thick and muscular.

Character Traits

One of the defining traits of this formidable animal is that it is extremely protective of its family. It will naturally guard a premises and interestingly enough, it has been known to sneak up on intruders as opposed to barking like many other dogs would. Unsurprisingly, the Neapolitan Mastiff is quite an independent animal and unless raised from an early age, it can be difficult to train. However, owners who purchase a puppy and train it properly will find that it is extremely loyal and caring. A portion of this independent nature arises from the fact that a full-grown mastiff is nearly as large as an adult human; it finds them much less of a threat as other breeds...
