Video : The World's Most Expensive Dog Tibetan Mastiff Breeds 180 Pound Costs £1million,Pics

Big Splash, the 11 month old, 180 pound Tibetan Mastiff and world's most expensive dog. Big Splash was sold recently for the insane price of 1.5 million dollars.

Tibetan Mastiff has been sold in China for a whopping one million pounds, making it the world's most expensive dog. The Telegraph reported that Tibetan Mastiffs are fierce guard dogs and are thought to the one of the world's oldest breeds.

they have become highly-prized status symbols for China's new rich. The dogs are thought to be a pure "Chinese" breed and they are rarely found outside Tibet, giving them an exclusivity that other breeds cannot match.

Priced at around 5,000 yuan barely five years back, the cost of a Tibetan Mastiff has risen astronomically and is sold for hundreds of thousands and even millions of yuan.

Best of all, their coats shed odors—they lack the troublesome aroma that afflicts other large dogs. In both their native Tibet and the West, they have been prized as livestock guardians and have even been reported to have killed tigers to protect their flock.

It sounds like a shaggy dog story, but it isn’t. A Tibetan Mastiff is believed to have broken the record as the world’s most expensive dog — sold to a young Chinese millionaire for a mind-blowing $582,000.

Ms. Wang, traveled to Qinghai province of northwest China to purchase the 18-month old dog, named Yangtze River Number Two.

Yangtze came home to an A-List entrance at Xi’an airport in China’s Shaanxi province, where he was reportedly greeted by hordes of dog lovers and picked up on Wednesday by a motorcade of 30 black Mercedes-Benz cars.
