Worlds Most Expensive Dog

Worlds Most Expensive Dog

The Tibetan Mastiff also known as Go-khyi (variously translated as “home guard”, “door guard”, “dog which may be tied”, “dog which may be kept”), reflects its use as a guardian of herds, flocks, tents, villages, monasteries, and palaces, much as the old English ban-dog (also meaning tied dog) was a dog tied outside the home as a guardian. However, in nomad camps and in villages, the Go-khyi is traditionally allowed to run loose at night.The molosser type with which the modern Tibetan Mastiff breed is purportedly linked was known across the Ancient world by many names.
The 11-month-old red Tibetan Mastiff named Big Splash, or Hong Dong in China, was purchased by a coal baron in northern China for $1.5 million.
