Behold~ the Neapolitan Mastiff (click to read more from Wikipedia)

Q: Who in the right sense of mind will keep this huge a dog!?? Q: If my enemies were to set this Mastino upon me, I'd most probably just bite my own tongue and die on the spot before the canine's teeth could even reach me...
Interesting Facts:
a) This breed is reported to have been pitted against Lions in the Colosseum and other ancient Roman arenas.

b) The Neapolitan Mastiff rarely barks unless under provocation, renowned for sneaking upon intruders as opposed to alerting them of their presence first.
