The Neapolitan Mastiff is a huge breed, with a gigantic head. They are covered in loose skin, with a head that looks like a more saggy Shar Pei. Their massive, rectangular body is deep and heavy looking. Their ears are droopy, but to maintain the threatening appearance, are typically cropped close to the head. Their tail is long and carried straight or curved, but, like the ears, can also be cropped to give a more fight-ready appearance.
