A dog as big as a donkey!
Well this might be an exaggeration by Marco Polo, the famous traveller. I am writing about a huge dog, a breed whose origins go back to 1100 B.C. Yes, Tibetan Mastiff, a native breed of Tibet, was living in complete isolation for centuries. The world was absolutely unaware of the existence of this breed. It was only in the mid 1800s that a puppy was gifted to Queen Victoria that led to the  breed coming into  limelight. Now, of course, this breed has been accepted by major kennel clubs of the world and has good fan following.

Tibetan Mastiffs descended from the famous Tibetan dogs. One of the oldest breeds, Tibetan Mastiff is found in Tibet. The climate is of extreme cold and in order to survive, nature has endowed it with a very heavy and shaggy coat.

This very primitive breed has recently found patrons among  the newly- rich Chinese who consider it a status symbol to own one. It is rumoured that a Chinese coal magnate bought a puppy for a whopping $1.52 million , making it the costliest dog of the world!!

TEMPERAMENT :


It is a fine guard dog. It is a fearless warrior, ever ready to save his 'family' at any cost. Although, slightly stubborn, it needs careful handling and a strong and firm master to control it although it has proved itself time and again  to be very gentle to women and children.

If the dog believes that he is right, he will not listen to a master who is meek and timid and lacks a strong mind and character. The owner must possess a natural air of authority to control this dog.

When the owner makes it clear that he is the Alpha of the pack, the dog when trained and house-broken, can prove to be a very good and useful companion.

Height :  25-30 inches

Weight: 64-80 kgs

Health problems: Prone to hype dysplasia, thyroid problem, skin disorder and ear infection.

Living conditions: Can live in an apartment if they are given proper exercise. Needs to be taken for daily walks.


Grooming : A must on regular basis.
