Are Neapolitan Mastiffs prone to seizures?

The Neapolitan Mastiff can be prone to seizures if it is in the bloodline of the dog. Consult the breeder you are looking into and ask about seizures and if they are present in his/her bloodlines.

Some Neapolitan Mastiffs are less wrinkled than those pictured in AKC photos. Is there a reason for that?

When purchasing a Neapolitan Mastiff, no matter how cute and wrinkly it looks as a baby, it will probably not be a more typey or wrinkly adult than its parents. So it is imperative as a buyer that you look into the pedigree of the puppy you are purchasing. That is why you see pictures of really typey AKC Neos but also see less typey, poor bone pictures also. With Neos, you really do get what you pay for. If the breeder can't show you pictures of the dogs in the pedigree, or the dogs are not typey, the puppy p[probably won't be either.

As it as been said in the post above, every breeder is different. Some work hard to make sure that their adults retain the wrinkles and look like the AKC standards; while others don't. If you are looking for an AKC standard Neo with lots of wrinkles as an adult, make sure you ask to look at previous puppy pictures (when they are adults), the dam and sire as well as pictures of the grandparents.

How common are Neapolitan Mastiffs in black?

Blue is the most common coloration of a Neapolitan Mastiff; however they can come in black as long as the sire and dam have black in their pedigree. Your breeder should have that information for you as well as tell you if they've had black puppies before.

In order to get a Black Mastino one of the PARENTS must be BLACK. The only other way to get black would be if one of the parents is mahogany bred to any color other than a Tawny.

Anonymous

Neapolitan Mastiffs come in 4 colors. Blue, Black, Tawny, and Mahogany. Tawny is genotype bbdd. Mahogany is genotype bbDd or bbDD. Blue is BBdd or Bbdd. Black is BBDD, BbDd, BBDd. Two blue dogs will never produce black. A tawny to tawny or to mahogany will never produce black. A mahogany to blue may produce black. So one of the parents do not have to be black. If the blue is BBdd and the mahogany is bbDD all of the offspring will be black.

What kind of health problems do Neapolitan Mastiffs have and how long do they live? We have had a 120-pound chocolate lab for 23 years, now gone, and a special need adult child and really like the bigger dogs.

That is incredible to hear that you had a Labrador that weighed 120 lbs, since Labradors should weigh 80 lbs at the most and live an average of 10 years; 23 years is unheard-of for dogs, in general, so that is unbelievable. The Neapolitan Mastiff lives an average of 7 - 9 years. Giant breed dogs do not live very long sadly. The average health issues the breed faces include cherry eye, hip dysplasia, bloat, pano-ostiosis (joint pain from growth can occur at 4-18 months and usually goes away on its own).

Anonymous

Common Health issues for the Breed are Hip/Elbow dysplasia, Heart, Thyroid issues, Bloat, Auto-immune and Skin issues. Many die from Cancer or Bloat. But I agree that a 120 pound Lab is unheard of and IF they are 120lbs they are morbidly Obese. I can't even imagine what a 23y old 120lbs Lab looks like..

How much does it cost to feed a Neapolitan Mastiff?

2 Comments

The cost of feeding all depends on your dog, what brand of food you want to feed your dog and where you live. But a grain-free, high-quality puppy food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go! Even though the food costs more, you feed less to your dog and remember this saying: The better the food, the less vet visits you have.

It didn't cost us anymore to feed our Neapolitan Mastiff than it did to feed our other dogs, between 3 large breed dogs we would go through a 50lb bag of Purina in about two weeks.
