The Tibetan Mastiff is rightfully considered the property of a mysterious corner of the globe – the “roof of the world” called Tibet. Representatives of this breed are reputed to be reliable and fearless defenders who are not devoid of self-esteem and independent character. Looking at the threatening appearance of the dog, it is difficult to imagine that this breed is one of the most friendly and loyal. The centuries-old duet of a man and a mastiff taught the latter to show remarkable patience and understanding.
The history of the origin of the Tibetan Mastiffs is shrouded in a train of mystery since the first dogs appeared long before the appearance of writing in certain regions of Tibet. The approximate age of the breed was determined only through genetic research, initiated by employees of the Chinese University of Molecular Evolution.
