    I was wondering, are there any reputable Neopolitan Mastiff breeders around who produce the old-fashioned type of neo? Something like this:

    My husband is really in love with these dogs. He wants one someday, but does not like the way the show types look. They don't look at all athletic or capable when you watch them lumber around a ring.

    Anyone?

    I can tell you that it will be very hard to find one in the US these days that produce the old-type neos. It's a shame what has happened to this breed.

    Has he considered a Corso?
