Tibetan Mastiff Dog Breed Puppy Ads

He has a medium-length, thick and weather-resistant double coat that is either black, black and tan, or golden. The double coat is kept throughout the year with very little shedding except once a year (usually in Spring, depending on the climate) when he "blows" his coat. This period of shedding can last about eight weeks. The breed is slow to mature, with males reaching full maturity between the ages of four to five years and females a little earlier at three to four years.

Though patient, gentle, stable and loyal, the Tibetan Mastiff is also independent, aloof and ready to fiercely defend. Those who know the breed will quickly point out that this is not the dog for everyone as he can be a real challenge even for experienced dog owners. He requires a fair amount of attention and exercise to keep him occupied, otherwise, as with many breeds, he may become destructive to relieve boredom. In addition, it should be stressed that the Tibetan Mastiff is a strong willed breed who requires early training and proper socialization with people and other animals.

A very intelligent breed, the Tibetan can adapt to many different functions. However, he is an extremely independent thinker and generally does not show a great deal of interest in organized activities, such as obedience or agility. By nature he is a guardian and this instinctive ability makes him an excellent protector of the home. It must be stressed however, that this is not the breed for everyone. If you are considering adopting a Tibetan Mastiff, learn about the breed before bringing him into your home. Be sure that he will fit into your lifestyle.

The ancient breed of Tibetan Mastiffs (also known as Do Khyi and commonly referred to as TM) gained fame for their legendary fierceness as the outside guardians of Tibetan monasteries while Tibetan Spaniels acted as lookouts, lying on the high monestary walls and barking to warn the monks and Mastiffs when anything approached. The Mastiffs also served as fearless protectors of homes, livestock, villages and caravans. In North Ameria, Tibetan Mastiffs have been used as guard dogs, herding dogs, sled dogs, and as family companions. The breed is believed to be one of the ancestors of the Newfoundland, the Great Pyrenees, the Dogue de Bordeaux, the Great Dane, and many others. Still classified as a rare breed, the Tibetan Mastiff dates back almost three thousand years and is among the oldest of purebred dogs.
If you are considering a Tibetan Mastiff puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
