Welcome to the board. My name is Debbie and I am owned by an 11 month old lovable mutt named Tater and an almost 10 month old neo mastiff named Willow. I don't really have alot of advice (we got Willow @ 6 months of age)except really study up on the breed and their quirks. Check out genetic issues like cherry eye (Willow has this) and hip displasia. Also be careful of the heat. Willow hates hot weather and I make sure the air conditioner is on just to keep her cool. Who cares if my electric bill is sky high. LOL We had Willow spayed about 3 weeks after we brought her home, but I really didn't want to deal with her going into heat and I wanted to have her 1st (unsuccessful
)eye surgery done. There are quite a few people on the board that recommend waiting until at least a year before you spay/neuter to way for your dog to be more mature. One last thing.....Neo's drool....ALOT. Willow drools when it's hot, drinks water, eats, wants food etc. etc. etc. Basically I don't leave my house unless I have some sort of drool stain. LOL Anyway, if I think of anything else I'll let you know or if you have any questions PM me or PM the other neo owners. Congrats on getting a neo. THey're AWESOME dogs.
P.S. I've attached a couple of somewhat recent pics of my 2 babies. Hope to see pics of your baby soon.
