If it’s in the Guinness Book of World Records, you know it’s legit! The Tibetan mastiff holds the record for the most expensive dog breed of all time. These giant, majestic creatures are a very rare and ancient dog breed. In Tibetan culture, they believed to be deeply spiritual creatures and have been considered a status symbol for the extremely wealthy. Legend has it that Genghis Khan had one, legend says. So did the Buddha himself!.
Meet Hong Dong (or “Big Splash” in English). In 2011, an unknown Chinese coal baron paid $1.6 million for this beautiful animal!!!
The 11-month-old giant pup was raised on a diet of beef, chicken, abalone and sea cucumber. His breeder, known only as Mr. Lou said he is a perfect specimen.
