Ancestors of the Neapolitan Mastiffs were bred for use in war and bloody Roman arena contests. The Neapolitan Mastiff is a serious, powerful dog with abundant, hanging wrinkles and folds on the huge head and very large dewlap. They are very keen to their owners' commands. Intelligent, very protective courageous, serious and mild mannered. Generally quiet, they tend to only bark when necessary. Socialize this breed while they are young.
This is a natural guard dog and protection training is not necessary. You cannot breed out the guard in this dog. If they sense there is a thread to the home they will react, unless the owner is there and tells them that everything is ok.
The grooming requirements for the French Bulldog are relatively low, which is ideal if you do not have that much time to dedicate to grooming. His short coat needs an occasional brushing to keep it looking good, and you should ensure that the wrinkles and folds on his face are cleaned, and that you check his ears are dry and clean to avoid infection and for hygiene reasons. This is a fairly low shedder on a seasonal basis, and so may prove suitable for those with allergies.
