Tibetan Mastiff Puppies
Description: The Tibetan Mastiff is the largest of the Oriental breeds, it’s a native to Central Asia. The Tibetan Mastiff can be found throughout the Himalayan region. Their prime function has been as guard dogs and herding dogs, but they also make an ideal family companion. Generations of working as a guardian of yak, sheep and, more importantly women and children and requiring always a protector and not a killer has produced a disposition and temperament of controlled strength, initiative, and fearlessness. This is tempered with patience, loyalty, and gentleness. The Tibetan Mastiff has incorporated many attributes: impressive stature, formidable appearance, and great strength. The Tibetan Mastiffs are well built dogs, well muscled and have much substance and bone. The skin on the face hangs down, giving the impression of a long face. Noble and impressive, this large, powerful, heavy dog is of solemn but kindly appearance.

with children, but should be supervised with them, as they can be overprotective.
