Tibetan Mastiff

Set of seated and standing side elevation drawings of the Tibetan Mastiff dog breed

The Tibetan Mastiff is a large breed of dog belonging to the mastiff family. With origins rooted in the nomadic cultures of Tibet, China, Mongolia, India, and Nepal, this dog was fine tuned over thousands of years to expertly guard and look after animals and settlements. The Tibetan Mastiff has an extremely thick, double coat that allows it to survive in extremely harsh climates, such as the high altitudes of the Himalayas. Unlike most long-haired dog breeds, the Tibetan Mastiff does not shed year-round, but rather has one great molt in late winter or early spring.
