Eterno Neapolitan Mastiffs 

   Welcomes you to our website

We are a dedicated kennel from Australia with an imperishable love and passion for the Neapolitan Mastiff, or Mastino as it's known in its mother country Italy.  Our experience as dedicated owners and fanciers of Neapolitan Mastiffs dates back to 1995.  These dogs are not just our hobby, they are our life.  Whilst we show our dogs, they are first and foremost an integral part of our family, raised on a 100 acre beef farm in a loving home environment.  Eterno strives to have a balance of health and longevity whlst not compromising breed type.  We breed occasionally and selectively.





ETERNO - endless, everlasting, timeless, imperishable

Salvatore Scherma, April 21, 2006. “The bones of its members (four quarters) must be powerful and be able to support beneath large affluent full paws with toes well arched, a cat like paw”. Words of knowledge and agreement at Eterno Neapolitan Mastiffs. We strive for an “ideal model” which Salvatore continues to say!
