This is an exceptionally bulky dog providing the impression of great energy and strength. His body is covered with lose skin that hangs in folds and wrinkles, particularly on the brisket, chest and head.
The mind on this dog is huge, this skull is two thirds like profound as this muzzle and this muzzle is wide with widely flaring Open nostrils and profound jowls. The ears are small and almost always cut and the tail is tapered and brief. The Neopolitan in motion seems to be even more maximum and lumbering, appearing much as a gradually moving and thoughtful bear since it gaits. The legs look short even though the dog is comparatively tall, at 26-28 inches, on account of the depth of the massive chest, which extends to well beneath the elbow. In the background of the breed, it is thought that he was among the fighting dogs that were used from the Gladiator conflicts of wildlife fought for the amusement of the Ancient Rome crowds.
