In 2017, a Neapolitan pet named Martha beat all those Chinese crested dogs at California’s Sonoma-Marin Fair, the Ugliest Dog in the World. There is a good reason for this. Neapolitan mastiffs have monstrously large heads filled with folds and holsters, permanently wrinkled foreheads, and sad eyes. There are even wrinkles around its front paws. A breed developed in Italy as a guardian, it is large and powerful, with a shoulder height of 26 to 29 inches and a weight of 110 to 150 pounds. A really big male can lift weights at 200 pounds. It has a long back, a thick neck, and a broad chest covered with a thick but hard coat.

The Neapolitan mastiff is a guard dog that likes to be around the family and is a good dog for families with children. However, it sheds, drools a lot, and needs protection from the heat. This big ugly dog ​​faces health problems like hip dysplasia and rarely lives past 10 years. Despite their large size, the Neapolitan Mastiff can do well in an apartment but still requires a lot of exercise.
