1991 FCI Standard with S. Allen commentary ("The Official Book of the Neapolitan Mastiff")
Behavior and Character:
The character of the Neapolitan Mastiff is steady and loyal, not agressive or apt to bite without reason. As protector of his property and persons, he is always watchful, intelligent, noble, and majestic.
This description of the Mastino`s temperament differes from the 1968 standard which states, (The Mastino) is particularly adapted as a guard and personal defender. He is steady and calm, but agressive with strangers, especially when commanded to be so." The Newer description reflects the values of more modern society which tends to disparage ferocious people or animals. It mollifies the temperament in contrast to the ancient descriptions of the home guard mastiff. But even in downplaying the agressive nature of the mastino, the 1991 standard qualifies its description by stating, "not apt to bite without reason"
