The Neapolitan Mastiff


"The Neapolitan Mastiff or Neo, comes from Italy, where once it was used as a gladiator dog in the bloody spectacles of the Coliseum. They were also used as war dogs by the Roman legion. Today, they are generally protectors of the home. Distinctive in appearance, the largest males can top 200 lbs and are covered in loose, wrinkly skin with hanging jowls."

  3. As Shakespeare said "Let slip the dogs of war." I wonder if he had these in mind?
