  • all European mastiffs are descended from the Tibetan Mastiff, the most ancient member of the canine species, the first Asian mastiffs were probably brought to Greece from India by Alexander the Great around 300 BC, the Greeks introduced the dogs to the Romans, who adopted them enthusiastically and used them in circus combats, the Neapolitan Mastiff is a direct descendant of the Roman Molossus, while the breed became extinct throughout the rest of Europe, it continued to survive in Campania, despite the perils of weather and war, one can therefore say that the Neapolitan Mastiff has existed in Campania for two thousand years, even though it was not officially recognized until 1946, and its standard was not set until 1949, the Neapolitan Mastiff was bred for use in war and in bloody Roman arena spectacles
