Tibetan Mastiff Information

The Tibetan Mastiff is a large, ancient breed who hails from the Himalayan Mountains and the plains of Central Asia. Standing up to 30 inches tall and weighing up to 160 pounds, he truly is a gigantic dog, and his immense double coat only adds to his mass. His intimidating appearance and watchful nature make him the ultimate guard dog!

Naturally independent, the Tibetan Mastiff can come off as aloof at times. Don’t let this fool you – he is devoted to his family and would do anything for them. He is calm and even-tempered at home, but if you let him out, just make sure he is in a fenced in area; this breed is notorious for not coming when called.
