I was suprised to read Fang was a Neopolitan, I thought it was a different breed.  Anyone have any cute pictures to share?  Im now investigating the breed to determine if a puppy would be a good fit to to our giant breed family(2 year old saint bernard with hd).

Daisy is a Neapolitan but she is mahogany. I think Fang was blue or black.
She will be 2 yrs old in Jan. and currently weighs 137lbs.  She is going through an "I like to be rough" stage.   We are working on nipping it in the bud but it's a big bud to nip.  Ugh!
She's awesome.

Make sure you do your homework on this breed, or you will end up with a dog that does not look anything like Fang on Harry Potter which was bred by Steve of Rayvonley kennels in the UK. There are cheaper breeders out there and they promise wrinkles,but the dogs grow up with no bone, mass or wrinkles that is characteristic of the breed. Here is some pictures of some of my babies.
