At Number 9 – (A) One of the oldest breeds of dogs with a history dating back centuries, the TIBETAN you see today is a semblance of what the breed used to be with differences being today a larger, more MASTIFF bred (Show dog) version. The TIBETAN is a very large dog that is surprisingly athletic and nimble for their size. It’s not uncommon for the modern TIBETAN to weigh upwards of 200lbs.

The TIBETAN is a defensive minded dog, a principal ingredient for a functional guard dog. Not as prey oriented as the NEO, with the difference being the breeds independent nature and hyper territorial attitude towards strangers. TIBETAN aren’t wanderers choosing to stay close to home and acclimated to harsh weather, they don’t mind being outside.

On one side, aloof and distrusting of strangers and on the other a highly tolerable dog of its family and loyal to a fault the TIBETAN needs socializing and training to tame the two (2) extremes. If someone believes the TIBETAN is the dog for them, I’d advise to acquire one as a puppy and to prepare to work with their dog well into adulthood. Maturation is slow, typical of a MASTIFF but they’re a clever breed that is adept to most anything thrown at them. Since their not prey driven, be careful of training with too much defensive pressure as they can become overly aggressive.

Some defaults: Hip and elbow dysplasia. Hypothyroidism and pupillary membranes (eye disorder) canine-inherited demyelinative neuropathy (look up) skin and weight issues. For a large dog, the breed has a longer than normal life span compared to other MASTIFF.
Also beware of unscrupulous breeders and brokers selling the TIBETAN MASTIFF
