TIbetan Matiff at 600 Thousand Dollars

A Chinese millionaire couple paid the equivalent of $ 600,000 for the Tibetan Mastiff behalf of the Yangtze River number two. A huge dog weighs about 150 pounds. This is just one example of how expensive the Tibetan Mastiffs were in China.
Tibetan mastiff, which can reach 180 pounds, a team of sky-high prices, because they are considered good luck. Sometimes the dogs are called “snow lion” after the heavenly guardians of the Himalayan kingdom.

Nonetheless, Fan Xing, head of the International Center for Veterinary Services, said that the obsession with bad … for dogs.

Owners of large cash drop at that, ultimately, a status symbol, but not ready or unwilling to properly exercise and care for giant dogs.

A similar trend is hit in the U.S., when Disney’s 101 Dalmatians came out first: each family wanted cute, spotted puppies, but few people realized how high they are in service.

In the case of the Tibetan mastiff, which has a lifespan of 14 years, the main problem is the height: from Tibet, giant dogs are not used to altitudes below 12,000 feet, and some die when they are brought into China, the main town for sale.
