In Zhejiang, China a luxury pet fair was held and a property developer paid $1.9 million for a one year old Tibetan Mastiff in what could be the most expensive dog sale ever. Mastiffs are very big dogs that look like a lion and could be, at time ferocious.

Pure Tibetan Mastiffs are very rare in China like Pandas, so their price is high and they have become a status symbol among China’s rich. The Mastiff blood line comes from dogs used for hunting in central Asia and Tibet by nomadic tribes. Owners say they are very loyal and protective.
