The Tibetan Mastiff is a ancient large breed of Dog, they are very furry, usually black or brown in color 33 inches tall and, 160 pounds or bigger, they are very popular in China, India, Tibet and, Nepal for guarding their sheep from Wolves, Bears, Leopards and, even Tigers. I am assuming these animals probably mostly run, instead of choosing to fight, because even as big and, tough looking of a Dog as the Mastiff is it's hard to imagine, it would stand, much chance in a actual fight, with a Bear or Tiger. Have you seen a Tibetan Mastiff?

Yeah, I saw some pictures and, they are very cute as long as they aren't showing there teeth, then they can look very scary, but I am sure most of them are friendly.

All Mastiff breeds are huge, the main difference with this one is it's very furry.

@TRBRocks420 Oh so that's the difference . The mastiff i saw has a brown fur but not thick and long . It's just like a pug's fur .

I haven't seen a real Tibetan Mastiff yet as it is hardly to see such a big dog in the city. Such kind of big dog will be a threaten for others. I heard that this dog can also fight with lion. Besides, this dog is rather expensive and also you can keep it in a small place. It needs more space to run.
