Tibetan Mastiff characteristics
Tibetan Mastiff is extremely huge and is considered the world’s largest dog with a height of at least 70 cm and a common weight of 60 – 90 kg. One Tibetan Mastiff is recorded to weigh up to 110 kg and as high as 1.2m. Their body is strong and well balanced. The muscles, especially at the shoulders, chest, hips and thighs are well developed. However, Tibetan Mastiffs usually only achieve their “huge” size when raised in the Tibetan plateau in a harsh cold climate.
The Tibetan Mastiff has a very thick, long, thick coat that helps to defy all kinds of weather, adapting to the harshest weather conditions. The coat comes in black, black – brown, black – gold, black – white, brown, red, orange, gray or yellow.
