A massive, powerful dog, the Neapolitan Mastiff is recognized by his loose, wrinkly skin and slow, bumbling gait. His serious demeanor and natural protective instincts make him an excellent watchdog, but he is calm and affectionate unless provoked. The Neapolitan Mastiff is a heavy drooler, especially in hot temperatures or after eating and drinking, so it helps to keep a towel handy. He should be taken on walks twice a day.
