Some of the earliest Tibetan Mastiffs in Europe were actually exhibited in Berlin Zoo, where a litter was born in 1878.
About the Tibetan Mastiff
Tibetan Mastiffs are powerful, well-built giants. These sober-looking dogs combine imposing strength with a resilience that enables them to work in any climate. Independent and commanding of respect, Tibetan Mastiffs are very loyal to their family and protective of their territory.
They mature slowly – females take two to three years to fully develop physically, while males take at least four years.
