"The Atlantean Sword"

Basil Poledouris 

 Show Success

One of the greatest compliments to a breeder is to have specimens they bred compared on the highest level in the AKC show ring. To be judged by a professional in the ring amongst other show specimens is truly a special attribute. I am proud to say that my dogs over the past several years have been 1st or in the top 3 in every show Old World Mastinos has entered. I owe alot of that credit to those breeders in Italy whos lines I used to start my line. It is NO secret that the lineage of my Old World line all goes back to 2 WORLD CHAMPION Mastinos. They are World Champion Brigante Del Castellaccio and World Champion Carnera Della Grotta Azzurra

General appearance:

A heavy, massive, and stocky dog of great size, whose length is greater than the height at the withers.

Above see "THE DON" winning his 8th straight Best of Breed Title and earning points towards his Championship. Mastino movement.
