A Tibetan Mastiff Puppy Sells In China For Two Million Dollars...

The puppy on the left, a one year old golden haired Tibetan Mastiff puppy was bought recently for twelve million yuan or nearly two million dollars at a 'luxury pet fair' in China's Eastern Province of Zhejiang.
By a Chinese property developer.
The puppy on the right, I'm sure you've noticed, is a much inferior puppy and sold for only
six million yuan.
The dog's breeder, Zang Gengyum explains these dogs are very rare, just like China's nationally treasured Pandas, which makes
the prices so high.
And that the mastiffs have become prized status symbols among China's wealthy for their lion-esque looks and enormous bodies. Descendants of dogs used for hunting by nomadic tribes in central Asia and Tibet the breed are fiercely loyal and protective.
I must remember to get one when I'm next
near a pet shop.
How much is that puppy in the window...


  1. I suggest you follow your dreams, Keith. A Tibetan Mastiff and you in The Flying Tortoise will certainly be one of the more spectacular tourist attractions in NZ. Good idea. And what's next?

  2. What a great pet for such a bargain price. I must get one of those too since we don't have them here in Hungary. The dog and I will go on exhibit. I'll charge a low price for the public to see a crazy lady and a dog for which she paid 2 million dollars and before no time I will have doubled or tripled my investment. Now I just have to figure out how to get that first 2 million since without the dog, no one will pay just to see a crazy lady since there are so many of us even here in Hungary.

  3. The owners have to be rich to feed the dogs!

  4. Sad commentary on the wealthy Chinese that a dog is so valuable and human life of so little worth. How many could eat or live in a bigger box just in the price of these two creatures. They are beautiful, still.

  5. Wait.... Isn't Canine considered a delicacy in China? How many steaks and chops could you get from one of those ugly mutts?

    1. Mr Spot. The dog is not for eating.
      Unless of course the owner gets hungry...
