Tibetan Mastiff...


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. Though patient, gentle, stable and loyal, the Tibetan Mastiff is also independent, aloof and ready to fiercely defend. The Tibetan Mastiff is generally a healthy and hardy breed. 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.

The Tibetan Mastiff is an average shedder with a coarse, moderately short outercoat and a short, dense undercoat. The breed requires regular grooming with a brush. The shiny coat can be maintained by brushing daily with a firm bristle brush and wiping with a moist towel. During the winter, the Tibetan Mastiff has an abundance of hair forming a very thick coat, but at the beginning of the summer much of the hair falls out. During this period the loose hair must be pulled out with a brush and comb. Baths or dry shampoos can be given when needed.
