hello to you all,
I am a mother of an 18 month old daughter who has been born with some pretty severe health problems and top of those health concerns we have recently found out that she has some significant hearing loss. Now we have and have always had big dog breeds so I am no stranger to the work and care that goes into having a big dog. My family and I are all very active and our dogs figure very much into that life style. Our dogs are not just dogs they are part of our family. They factor into how we plan our vacations, they sleep in our beds and are always in our hearts and thoughts.
I am looking for a Neapolitan Mastiff, preferable female, to be my lil girl's companion, friend, protector, and service dog. If you can help me to help my little girl please get in contact with me.

You really have to think about and research this breed a LOT before truly considering it. Whether of not you are used to owning large/giant breed dogs, having any dog at the same time as young child is a lot more challenging than it sounds (especially when the child in question has health problems). And, Neos are a LOT of work. They aren't a breed you would call a "gentle giant" and can NEVER be left unsupervised with a child, no matter how well behaved. I would look into another breed until your child gets older.
