Breed: Neapolitan Mastiff

Neapolitan Mastiffs PD(1) 1st Mafi Tommaso Goffredo’s Taro, this 11mo had decided to shed some coat in this warm weather but he still looked the part, conveys the impression of strength in a muscular frame topped off by a noble looking headpiece, skull is broad and stop is deep, his eyes are clean and nostrils well open allowing for easy breathing, broad chest and ribcage long and well sprung allowing for an impressive topline, powerful hindquarters allowing good ground covering steps, reserve BD behind his kennel mate with whom I feel sure he will have many tussles in the future, BP. OD(1) 1st Slater & Mafi Easy to Love Ariki, at 3.1/2yo presents a most majestic outline, head proportions spot on for the standards requirements and eyes clean, broad chest and strong straight bone, also well ribbed up with super topline, moved out quite happily on this warm day in a true and easy fashion, BOB. PB(1) 1st Pervenis Mastini Dasha Gods Gift, 7.1/2mo this blue is at a rather in between stage at the moment, her head has developed well and is proportioned with clean eyes and scissor bite, she has ample substance and her ribs are well sprung, to complete the whole package we must hope that she grows on and comes up on the leg to obtain the much needed overall balance, time is on her side, RBB. OB(2,1abs) 1st Pervenis Large Paw Selestia Del Mastini, this clear black is very well grown and constructed with the required substance and head features, well ribbed and bodied with tidy topline, hindquarters and a useful mover, BB.
