    Our family just got our second mastiff and couldn't be more thrilled. She's currently 5 months and 64 pounds. The breeder we got her from said her parents we're both Neapolitan and Cane Corso 50/50 each.
    I have a 11 year old corso we got as a rescue at estimated age 1 1/2- 2 years so we didn't get much puppy time with him but he's an excellent family pet.
    I can't seem to find any information on her specific mix. Is it because they are so closely related? I'm reaching out to see if anyone has had experience with this mix of mastiff so I'm thoroughly educated in her needs. I've of course researched tons on the Neo breed and realize they are a bit different. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm not sure how active this site is. However after doing some more digging on here I was able to find a video of popular opinion that she pretty much would just be considered an Italian Mastiff. Correct me if I'm wrong but that's kind of what I'm getting out of the info I'm getting on here.

    I think you are correct. The Neapolitan Mastiff and Cane Corso are very closely related. They both come from the original Italian Mastiff. Here's a video that helps explain it.

    here's one of the neos I got from from mike sottile sr. 40-50yrs ago ………….. I can tell you a lot of the old cane corso pics you see on the internet were registered Neapolitan mastiffs ………. the corso mike sr brought here were not big dogs …. i'd guess 130lb dogs ……. I would say sottile sr's dogs were a lot more "purebred" than what was going on in Italy ………. neos been "purebred" since the 1940's , my opinion is corso were neo crosses used to work ….. similar to American bulldogs ……...
