The Tibetan Mastiff is a massive, giant dog with sturdy bone structure. The body is slightly longer than tall. The somewhat wrinkled head is broad, heavy and strong. The Tibetan Mastiff is courageous, fearless, even-tempered, calm and thoughtful. Very loyal to their own family. Tends to bark at night if left outside, but will be quiet indoors. They are an outstanding flock guardian and is ferocious against wolves, leopards or any prey that try to approach their flock. Some claim the dogs can weigh up to 220 pounds (99 kg.). The molosser type with which the modern Tibetan Mastiff breed is purportedly linked was known across the ancient world by many names. 'Bhote Kukur' in Nepali as bhote means someone from Tibet and kukur means dog. In Mandarin Chinese, the name is Zang'Ao, which literally means Tibetan Mastiff or Tibetan "big ferocious dog". In Mongolia, it is called bankhar.
