A Bit About the Neapolitan Mastiff
Lucio Giunio Mederato Columella, in the first century AD, described the guard dog, as preferably black, because a black dog is more terrifying and intimidating. A black Neapolitan Mastiff, even during the daylight, would also be equally frightening. His description continues, “The head is so massive, the ears fall toward the front, the brilliant and penetrating eyes are black or grey, the chest is deep and hairy, the shoulder wide, the legs thick, the tail short, the hind legs powerful, the toenails strong and great.”
The ancestors of the Neo had many names: Macedonian Dog, Assyrian Dog, Sumerian Molossians, Bandogs, Dogues, and the Roman Molossus. The names were different, but they were all heavy bodied, big-heads, short muzzled dog with pendulous dewlaps, overly wrinkled foreheads, cropped ears to the point of amputation, and massively, heavy legs.
Some of today’s breeds who descended from the same ancestors are the Newfoundland, Dogue de Bordeaux, Mastiff, Saint Bernard, Dogo de Argentino, Fila Braselia, Tibetan Mastiff and Spanish Mastiff.
