So much for Exotic Mastiffs being rare...

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

Poor guy, he's in a shelter about an hour away from me. :sad:

Cane Corso? "Sweets"...

Neo it is then! I really couldn't tell - all I think of when I hear Neopolitan Mastiff is the famous photo of Bellagio from this year's Westminster, and this dog doesn't have near the amount of wrinkles Bellagio has. Looks like the shelter just labelled him as a "Mastiff," which is enough explanation for most people.

I contacted the United States Neapolitan Mastiff rescue and received an e-mail back saying they were aware of the dog and a volunteer was checking him out. So hopefully he will be picked up.

That's great news, Liana, thank you! I didn't even think to do that, I'm so glad you did. I hope this poor guy gets a new home where he can really start living.

I hope he gets a home too! The Neapolitan Mastiff volunteers seem to really do a great job from what I have seen. I contacted them about a female in Jackson, MI and they went to check her out right away. They pulled her when her time was up so she did not get sold for research. Now she is up for adoption and the volunteer said she is just a sweetie. :)

God that is a sad sight :crybaby: I took one in that looked just like him before, and one that looked MUCH worse. I don't know what is wrong with people. I wouldn't e suprised if he is full of worms either. That is normally why people get rid of them. They get reported, take the dog to the vet, the vet tells them what is wrong and how much to fix and *poof* the dog is suddenly not in their possession anymore.

Makes me sick. :po:
