I have friend who has a great one his bff is a Neapolitan Mastiff who is 210 pounds. He is treated just like a big dog and I think he thinks he is too. We love pics please post some.
I was going to say that too about not carrying the dog all the time. I had a client that bred Chi and he a Chi that had a so much confident Coco did not know he was a small dog.
What is your dog name?
