Hailing back to the days of ancient Rome, the Neapolitan Mastiff's colossal and commanding appearance has astonished invaders and intruders alike. The breed is tough and stately looking, as well as powerful and solidly built. The Neapolitan Mastiff has a classic guard dog exterior but is docile and non-aggressive on the inside.
Lifespan: 7–9 yr

The short coat of the Neapolitan Mastiff is fairly low maintenance. A bath from time to time should do the trick. The breed's eyes and ears should be checked and gently cleaned whenever needed, and the nails should get regular trims to keep them at a short length. Note that Neapolitan Mastiffs are wont to drool—so be prepared!
