The Neapolitan Mastiff originated in Italy, but were a cross between ancient war dogs of the Mesopotamia and the British Mastiffs of earlier times. The dog was used by the Romans to fight in their wars and as guard dogs to protect estates. They were also used to guard cattle to protect them from humans that may steal them or animals that may see them as prey. Being one of the largest dog breeds with some Neapolitan Mastiffs weighing over 150lbs, their size and strength made them useful for protection from predators. Their mistrust of strangers made them dependable when discerning potential predators from others. They may have been fed scraps of raw meat in the past. A raw food diet is good for this breed; however, adding meat to grain free kibble may help you control their fat and protein intake while aiding in their digestion.
