Neapolitan Mastiff Puppies

If you’ve been considering looking at Neapolitan Mastiff puppies in your search for a dog, you may be making a great choice. These dogs make great companions in the right home.

Here’s everything you need to know about them.

Where To Get Neapolitan Mastiff Puppies

It can be quite difficult to find a Neapolitan Mastiff in a shelter, because purebred dogs don’t often end up in shelters. This is because they’re highly desirable, and also because good breeders don’t sell them without a contract clause stating they can never be left at a shelter and should come back to the breeder if anything goes wrong. However, you might be able to find a mix, as Mastiff mixes can be quite common! Nala_The_Cane…

You can also look at breed-specific rescues, though the requirements for these tend to be strict to make sure they go to the right home.

Most people, however, get their purebred dog from a breeder.

The most important thing when looking at these puppies is to pick a good breeder. Backyard breeders will have puppies that have various health and temperament problems because they weren’t bred correctly. The parents may not have been chosen well or health-tested. They may not even be 100% Neapolitan Mastiff!

Make sure the following red flags aren’t present in any breeder: letting the puppy leave their mother and littermates before they’re eight weeks old; no registry papers or shot records; unwilling to let you come to the house to pick them up; no information on the parents; no spay/neuter contract in place.

The Cost

These dogs are not cheap. The average cost is around $2600.

Appearance

This doggo has a short and smooth coat that can come in four different coat colors with brindle markings. As you may have guessed, they’re also huge, and can weigh up to 150lb! Barretts…

Temperament

Neapolitan Mastiffs do make great family dogs, but they’re independent by nature. They’re affectionate with their family members, but they won’t be too cuddly. They don’t tend to be fond of children or other dogs, so you should consider your family situation before inviting one of these dogs into your home. It may be best to pick a dog who gets along better with the members of the household.

They tend to be wary of strangers too. While you can socialize them well and ensure every experience with a stranger is a positive one to improve this, they may just never be the friendly and super social dog you want. Bear this in mind when taking one on!

In addition, this pooch is intelligent but stubborn, so they may not be easy to train. Luckily, despite their size though, they don’t have high energy levels. They’ll still need a daily walk but this alone should keep them fit and happy. Dogman_blue…

Neapolitan Mastiff Puppies – Veterinary Needs

These dogs do have quite a few health problems you should watch out for. They can be prone to eye problems, heart problems, and orthopedic problems with their hips and elbows. Be aware that you may be looking at some high vet bills if you take one on.

Other than these issues popping up, their veterinary needs will be the same as any other dog. They’ll need a series of shots beginning when they’re around eight weeks old and ending when they’re sixteen to eighteen weeks. This series protects against distemper, parvovirus, and other nasty diseases. They’ll also need a rabies shot at the end of this.

These will be boosted roughly once a year, when they should also get a check-up.

Don’t forget to keep your dog up to date on flea and heartworm pills, and take them in for an extra visit if you suspect any health issues are popping up. Ccm20_19…

Diet

Everyone has strong opinions on what diet is best for a dog, so you might be wondering which to choose.

Kibble is convenient, but you should still ensure you pick a good brand and not just grab the least expensive off the shelf without reading the ingredients. Some cheap stuff is full of fillers and doesn’t have a lot of nutrients in it. You should also avoid grain-free food, which has been linked to heart disease.

Raw food is a great choice if done right. Dogs are omnivores who need more than just meat, so don’t expect to be able to just give them some raw meat. Use a subscription service or do a ton of research!

Remember that due to the size of your dog, they will eat a lot.

Grooming

You should take care of their ears, teeth, and nails. Ears and teeth should be cleaned every few days at the very least.

As for their nails, you should trim them every six to eight weeks. Some dogs aren’t fond of nail care, so make sure to have patience when getting them used to it and provide lots of treats!

As for their coat, it’s short, so you shouldn’t have too much of an issue. Brushing once a week should work.
