Comment to 'The Neapolitan Mastiff'
  • One of our most dog savvy members made a very thought provoking post "Changed my mind, there is no such thing as Mastiff". Tony's very powerful post prompted me to take a snippet and post it here to generate some discussion.

    Here goes... quote from Tony.

    "Neapolitan mastiff - Bulldog. The neapolitan mastiff and cane corso were assuredly one in the same dog before the early 1900s, and this dog was simply italy's answer to the alano espanol. A bull catching dog. It likely was rarely 100 lbs, usually less. Even in the usa in the 1970s the italian immigrants in new york still called them bulldogs. "
