I went to the park this afternoon and I couldn’t believe it when I spotted two Neapolitan Mastiff’s! I was very excited, I really wanted to see one last year for my Year of the Dog but unfortunately I didn’t meet any (they are pretty rare), so I couldn’t miss the opportunity to say hello. To make it even more exciting there wasn’t just the two Neapolitan Mastiff’s; their humans also had two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, two German Shepherds and two Border Terriers with them, they own 9 dogs in total (one was at home)! What a lovely group of dogs they are, I got to give nearly all of them a fuss. One of the Neapolitan Mastiff’s is a little shy so Bella offered her services to pose for me! Bella is a very friendly girl, I gave her lots of strokes! Bella went to live with her current human when she was 2 years old, her previous owners didn’t know what they were taking on and decided they weren’t the right humans for her to live with. She’s very happy with her 8 dog siblings now!
