This is my first time on this forum. I was wondering if anybody has a growth chart for a Neapolitan Mastiff puppy. We have an 11 week old female Neapolitan and she weighs 18 lbs. I was just wondering if she is normal/smaller/larger compared to other Neo pups. I understand that all puppies have different growth rates, I am just curious to hear about other Neo puppies. Thanks!!!

That will depend alot on the parents.
how big are/were they?
one litter can have different sizes, such as runts obviously.
That being said, 18 lbs @ 11 weeks does sound a bit on the small side to me.
Neo's aren't quite as large as the English at maturity, but it seems in my experience that 18lbs should be more like 8 weeks...don't know smiley

I would love to see some pics! Very Happy

The breeder that we got her from owns both parents. I am not sure how much the mother weighs. I know that the father weighs 180 lbs. From what I understand, the father is pretty big for a Neo. I will have to post some pictures of her. She is beautiful (all mamas say that, though Very Happy ). She is "blue" with crystal blue eyes. They turn green sometimes. I suspect that they will eventually turn green as she gets older - that is what happened with her mothers eyes. She has the sad eyes because of her droopy face and neck. And she has huge paws. Thanks for the reply!

180 LBS is about the maximum limit for male Neos- so he is on the big side.

I have seen the greens eyes, but rarely. My girls turned from blue to gold.
She is the blue brindle in my sig. pic.
she's 1/2 neo 1/2 cane corso (taking on more of the CC.) She is 120 lbs. now fully mature.

Hi! I had a tawny female Neo in the 90's. Her eyes were warm-grey, like her coat. I love Neapolitan eyes! I hope you will post pictures of your baby. Smile
