THE TIBETAN MASTIFF IS A FIERCE GUARDIAN OF HIS FAMILY AND FLOCK, MAJESTIC IN STATURE AND LOYAL FRIEND.

Legend has it that Tibetans believe that the souls of monks and nuns who weren’t  worthy to be either humans or Shambhalas (the heavenly realm) have been reincarnated as these dogs. Perhaps this explains their high level of intelligence and loving nature.

This breed is considered to be Royal as it belonged to Kings and Queens like King George IV, Queen Victoria and Genghis Khan who is believed to have 30,000 of these dogs when he was on his expedition to Western Europe.

Highly intelligent with a mind of their own, the Tibetan Mastiff can sense danger very acutely.

WELCOME! THIS SITE IS DEDICATED TO THIS VERY SPECIAL BREED.

IT'S PUPPY SEASON! BUYER BEWARE!

THE GREEDY SCAVENGERS ARE OUT AND READY TO SELL. I HAVE NOTICED A LOT OF FIRST TIME, SOME MULTI BREED, TIBETAN MASTIFF BREEDERS OUT THERE SELLING PUPS FROM UNTESTED ONE YEAR OLDS. SOME ASKING $5000.00! OMG! SERIOUSLY, WHO DO THESE PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE KIDDING? DON'T BE TAKEN FOR A FOOL AS WE WERE :(. THERE ARE MANY DISHONEST, UNETICHAL SCAVENGERS AND SCAM ARTISTS, WHO ARE VERY GOOD AT LYING OUT THERE. THEY BUY FOR THE AKC CORPORATE PUPPY MILL BREEDERS AND BROKERS WHO THEN MAKE UP PEDIGREES. WHATEVER THEIR SELLING POINTS ARE? COLOR? AKC "CHAMPIONS"? WHATEVER THEIR PUNCH LINE IS, DO YOUR RESEARCH.

$4000.00 PLUS FOR PUPPIES HERE IN THE U.S? HOLY COW!
IF YOU ARE GOING TO PAY THAT MUCH; I HAVE A BRIDGE TO SELL YOU!!! GO OVERSEAS AND GET A NICE OUT CROSS LINE. MOST LIKELY THEY ONLY PAID $1500.00 IF THAT FOR THE SIRE OR DAM.

PERSONALLY IF I WERE GOING TO SPEND $5000.00 FOR A PUPPY, I WOULD GO OVERSEAS AND GET A VERY NICE TIBETAN MASTIFF WITH NEW BLOOD TO BRING BACK TO THE U.S. I CERTAINLY WOULD NOT SPEND $5000.00 ON SOME OF THE STUFF THEY ARE SELLING HERE IN THE U.S. I CAN THINK OF MANY KENNELS HERE THAT CHARGE LESS THAT I WOULD PREFER TO BUY OR RECOMMEND. FROM MY EXPERIENCE WITH SOME PEOPLE; I JUST COULD NOT JUSTIFY SPENDING $5000.00 FOR WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO SELL. I HAVE FOUND THAT THE MOST LONG STANDING BREEDERS HERE IN THE U.S. CHARGE SOMEWHERE AROUND $3500.00 FOR A SHOW QUALITY PUP AND $2000.00 FOR A PET. THESE ARE LONG TIME EXPERIENCED BREEDERS WHO HAVE FAR MORE KNOWLEDGE THAN THE "NEW" SCAVENGER BREEDERS POPPING UP TRYING TO SCAM YOU $4000.00 PLUS. I COULD NOT RECOMMEND A BREEDER CHARGING THAT HERE IN THE U.S.!!! NO WAY.

YOU HAVE PLENTY OF OPTIONS. LAST TIME I CHECKED THERE WERE 7 PAGES OF PUPPIES ON A PUPPY FINDER SITE. TYPICALLY, PEOPLE WILL TELL YOU THAT GOOD BREEDERS HAVE RESERVATIONS FOR THEIR PUPPIES BEFORE THEY BREED. BUYER BEWARE.

DO NOT FORGET THE AKC "DOES NOT" REQUIRE MICRO CHIPPING SO HEALTHY ANIMALS CAN BE SUBSTITURED IN ORDER TO PASS HEALTH TESTS, THE AKC "DOES NOT" REQUIRE HEALTH TESTING OF BREEDING PAIRS AND THE AKC "DOES NOT" REQUIRE DNA ALONG WITH MICROCHIP TO INSURE THE ACCURACY OF IT'S REGISTRY!!!! REMEMBER AS AN EXAMPLE, COLOR IS NOT AN INDICATOR OF THE HEALTH OF A DOG OR QUAILITY. SOME GOOD ADVICE IS TO LOOK PAST THE COLOR. STRUCTURE AND TEMPERAMENT ARE MORE IMPORTANT. SO NOW THAT IT IS PUPPY SEASON; BUYER BUYER. IT'S NICE BEING ABLE TO GIVE TIPS WHEN YOU ARE NOT SELLING PUPPIES FOR A LIVING :). THE U.S. MARKET HAS BECOME OVER RUN WITH NEW PEOPLE BREEDING THE FIRST TWO TIBETANs THEY HAVE. THESE ARE JUST A FEW WORDS OF ADVICE. TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT; NO MOTIVATION HERE. I HAVE NO PUPPIES TO SELL YOU! IF WE CAN SAVE SOMEONE ELSE FROM GETTING SCREWED, THAT IS A GOOD THING!
