The most intimidating
It is often said that the Fila Brasileiro can be highly aggressive towards strangers if not correctly trained.
This is recognised by the fact many of these breeds are banned in countries throughout the world.
It was a Neapolitan Mastiff that played the part of “Fang”, Hagrid , the half-giant’s dog in the Harry Potter films.
The large mastiff-type head is complemented with an equally large body in which the musculature is barely hidden by thickly folded skin.
It has a sleek muscular body weighing up to 50kg (110lbs).
The business end of the Cane Corso is its large, intimidating head with powerful jaws.
The Neapolitan Mastiff is thought to be the direct descendant of the ancient Roman Molossus used for both war and the bloodthirsty arena.
