Lurking from the mist of the ages emerges
over 100 pounds of the strongest animal on
earth, pound for pound. Legend says part
lion, gargoyle and dog - but unlike any
animal you've ever encountered. It moves
like a lion, fights like a bear, and has an
unmatched devotion for its master. The dog
that fought in the coliseum and followed
man into battle. The protectors of family
and estates for thousands of years.
Modern people cannot fathom the power
of the Neo. It was the neo's likeness that was
used as gargoyles on ancient buildings.
The neo was Ceasar's bodyguard and
Genghis Khan's war dog.... friend to Michelangelo,
Leonardo, and Alexander the Great.
The neo has come down the long 50 centuries unchanged.
It was a Neo they spoke of when they wrote,
"Then let slip the dogs of war."
In spite of the terrifying countenance of the Neo,
he or she is a soul of love and commitment to
his or her family. Cognizant of and
responsive to the frailties of the elderly,
handicapped and children. The family's
best friend, the intruder's worst nightmare!!
What is it with the Neo that commands
such a rush of awe? No other dog has
this presence. Leonardo and Alexander
the Great chose the Neo. Why?
Because of the ferocious bond he or she
forms with his or her family.
Why have people been reproducing the Neapolitan Mastiff
almost unchanged for over 5,000 years?
Once you own one, you'll understand."
