    Before I get banned for having the hide to stand up for myself against a gutless coward who has to hide behind the anonymity of a board to say anything to me, 'Johnson needs to take a few show judges to task, for if it is right dogs not to standard have been wrongly titled!!

    The book put out by the NSW Neapolitan Mastiff Club of "Australian Champions" features five of my ABCALERT dogs, probably the only ones ever shown, for I have never shown any, and prefer pet homes for my pups.

    ABCALERT ARTEMIS

    ABCALERT SHADOW

    ABCALERT FLAVIA

    ABCALERT WOOTANNA

    ABCALERT FENRIR

    I think this does show exactly where the anonymous one is coming from

    Cheers Maria

    I hope you dont get banned MBM because you should be standing up for yourself. Obviously Johnson is a breeder of the typy Neos and cannot handle the fact that people are moving away from those unhealthy horrible looking dogs and cannot handle what is obviously truth. Johnson should show us pics etc of his "proper" Neos and stop attacking people anonomously. Come out say who you are and show us your dogs.

    And FYI Johnson we are all switched on people here, we can come to our own conclusions about what we believe based on the info provided. If you want to contribute do it without attcking another member.

    MBM your opinions are always appreciated and I for one do not think you should be banned!

    Nine, whose new owner prefers his proper title of Alonso has sired his first litter, due early in June, all tests done, hips and elbows are excellent, we gave him to a mate who lost her dog to cancer as we only need him to breed the occasional litter and he is an excellent family/guard/companion for her.
    I do not score all dogs but had already known one sister to him was said to have bad elbows, I doubted this would come from his mum who is an Abcalert bitch still going strong and fit at 7 years old but still thought it best to do him, mother of the pups Kirra, is also out of one of our girls, also still well last I heard of her last year

    Alonso is an amazing looking dog. He looks healthy and happy (especially with that piece of palm!) which is exactly how a dog should look. You should be proud to have bred him and anyone getting a pup by him is going to get a beautiful looking dog!

    Thank you lexie, Dogs like him often get rubbished because they lack huge bulk especially whrn young, thet take a long time to mature, this is as it should be but is not as many are now being bred, it is a pity because dogs like him are, in general, fitter and longer living, you do still get failures of course but far fewer.

    Breeding dogs to grow too big too fast is a grave mistake it is like meat chickens, I was once given a dozen of them along with a bag of the food they feed them, by 8 weeks of age 5 of them were either totally or partially crippled, their legs would no longer hold them up, we had to kill the lot because we were told they would pretty well all go that way if we did not, I have always remembered those poor chooks when I see people boasting of how big the Neos are and trying to say they are not too big when clearly they are!

    Even the mother of the pups is not big as Neos go although she is bigger than most of my bitches have been. I do expect pups to nice, middle of the road types and intend to keep a nice girl if there is one born.

    Ooooo MBM i saw a gorgeous male at the Brissie Beneful Bark in the Park last weekend he was just fabulous. Not overly wrinkled or huge, good proportions (legs to body etc). Gave the guy a compliment on such a gorgeous specimen!!

    Your welcome Minibull I looked on that website and saw what the puppies look like... how disgusting. Its so cruel to force breeding towards a type that is very very short lived and has obvious problems from the get go. Especially unfair when they could (as in your case) breed a much healthier looking specimen (aka Nine)!

    Good to hear of nice ones K&P, they are always out there, just all too often not being used to breed other nice middle of the road types, nature does try to correct our human foolishness if given half a chance.

    It is a bit of an eye opener, Lexie, that site. She may be a bit biased where some breeds are concerned but I know she is not wrong about Neos, we have bred them for over 15 years now and still get faults vets tell me are caused by the past inbreeding so extensively done to start the breed off, plus the exaggerated traits wanted in the breed being caused by bad recessive genes to start with.
    Even with extensive health testing, the general health of the population of the breed will not improve much because of types of dogs being bred.
