    VC Agria breed profile 2011-2016

    "The Tibetan Mastiff is a primitive breed used to guard livestock. The breed is highly intelligent, highly protective, and independent thinking dog. Richard Eichhorn has a been involved with this rare dog breed since 1978, he was one of the first advocates for the breed in the United States. Very few animal documentaries will give you insight in to this breed. While at his breeding facility in the California High Dessert, we see a lot of great examples of the Tibetan Mastiff breed. The modern Tibetan Mastiff if only slightly changed from the Ancient dogs of Tibet. Because this is a landrace breed developed over centuries in Southern China, and only recently brought mainstream, this is still a healthy breed. Aloof yet alert the Tibetan Mastiff is quiet and protective of his family, This is an elite canine guard dog. The Tibetan Mastiff developed in the Himalayan Mountains and the plains of Central Asia. The breed has a heavy coat that unlike more domesticated breeds, the coat serve as protection from predators as well as the elements."
