General Appearance
An ancient breed, rediscovered in Italy in the 1940's, the Neapolitan Mastiff is a heavy-boned, massive, awe inspiring dog bred for use as a guard and defender of owner and property. He is characterized by loose skin, over his entire body, abundant, hanging wrinkles and folds on the head and a voluminous dewlap.

SUPPORT
USNMC

In order to reach its goals, as a non-profit entity and AKC parent club, the USNMC needs volunteers most of all to do the work of the club.  Fortunately the club has a group of hard-working members!

But the USNMC also needs money!  Members pay a (relatively nominal) membership fee annually which nearly covers the expenses of maintaining the membership roles.
