Welcome to Allevamento Della Vecchia Roma, which means, ” kennel from the old Rome.” Our Kennel is located in sunny California in the Los Angeles area. The Neapolitan Mastiff also known as the Mastino Napolitano, Neo Mastiff, Roman War Dog, and Italian Mastiff is an ancient breed originating in Italy and used for protection of person and property. Through years of experience and dedication we strive to breed the Neapolitan Mastiff true to the Italian standards.
With selective breeding programs and the use of Champion European Bloodlines such as: Stradonne, Castellacio, Del Gheno and more we have successfully and consistently produced many Champion Neapolitan Mastiffs with the typical look that everyone loves in this breed. The combination of type, movement, structure and temperment is what sets our Mastini apart. With Champions like Bruno Della Vecchia Roma, Bijioux Della Vecchia Roma, Clovis Della Vecchia Roma, Otello Della Vecchia Roma, just to name a few these Champions have produced offspring that many breeders have used to start their breeding programs. There are many Neapolitan Mastiff breeders and the choices are great but by examination of the Pedigree you will find that much of the Bloodlines originate from Della Vecchia Roma this is not by accident or a coincidence to make champions, you need to be a Champion Neapolitan Mastiff Breeder.
As dedicated breeders, we raise all of our Neapolitan Mastiffs in a family environment. We believe that this does a great service to this breed. All of our Neapolitan Mastiff puppies are raised with the mother, and we also introduce them to children at a young age. Whether you are looking for a Neapolitan Mastiff puppy, or a Neapolitan Mastiff adult to show, or for you and your family, we welcome your questions. We want to thank you for taking interest in our beloved breed as well as visiting our site.
