    Default New here neopolitan mastiff

    Hi
    I have a three year old neopolitan mastiff, I saved her by one week from a shelter, she was about to be put down. She needed 3 eye operations, and has full vision now, Layla is gentle, smart and well traind.

    I have always taken in sick or disabled dogs, my bullmastiff was so badly beated his back was horrifically broken, was incontinent, amount many other things. I have taken in a dangerous dog, and a deaf dog too.

    We only have Layla ATM.

    Can't wait to get to know you and all your dos, and yes I have read all 200. Of back posts and have learnt so much, so thankyou.

    Welcome to the forum
    Good on you for taking in dogs who might be a bit difficult to live with, thats something a lot of people aren't willing to do!

    I've never met a Neopolitan Mastiff, but from the pics i've seen of them, they are huge... and i imagine they might be drool monsters :P

    Thanks, I have gotten more from these special needs dogs than I have ever given to then.

    Layla is a drool monster though not as bad as other mastiffs. She is 65kg and so people and dog friendly. I just feel blessed to have/had them all in my life.

    She sounds beautiful The biggest dog i've had is 30kg, so 65kg sounds crazy to me

    Special needs dogs are definitely great, very misunderstood though. My Aussie is dog reactive, he's not a rescue, but i've bonded with him more than i have with any other dog.

    Welcome Neo & 2 chickens

    We used to have a couple of neo owners here regularly but they liked arguing about breeding and conformation (eg they shouldn't need eye operations if they're well bred), haven't seen either in a while but you never know.

    I guess like most Mastiff - you need a slobber towel if you're going to hang around with them?

    Oh and the others seem to have neglected to say -

    we'd love to see some photos. you can load some up here if you
    click on "my profile" (very top right)
    and then click on "More" - next to "albums" about half way down the menu on the left of your profile.
    And then click on "create album" and follow the instructions..

    oh... Neos are on my list of wants - but I dont do drool so that will probably never happen.

    We used to have a boy neo who hung out at the local gelato shop with his owners - they're really lovely gentle giants

    Nice working saving her Sounds like your both lucky to have each other.

    Welcome

    thankyou for saving her. and your previous dogs.
    I have a french mastiff rescued last year in a bit of a mess, has come good now though, and he drools like you wouldnt believe. everyone has to wear overalls around the place! But that's part of charm i guess?

    If i had money, my mastiff would get botox to stop that drool.
