Tibetan Mastiff Q&A

 

How big to Tibetan Mastiffs get?
Males: 26-29 inches at the withers and 100-140 lbs.  Females: 24-27 inches and 80-120 lbs.  Our girls stand at 27 inches and weigh in between 100 and 115 lbs at 2.5 years old.

How often can they have puppies?
Tibetan Mastiffs are an ancient breed and therefore only have one eustress each year, generally in the fall.

How many puppies do they normally have?
A typical littler is 5 or 6 puppies but Wonton came from a litter of 10.

Do they shed?
Yes!  They shed a small amount in the fall when they are growing their winter coat.  They also “blow” their coat in the spring, which is a bit like shedding in over-drive.

What does “Ancient Breed” mean?
Tibetan Mastiffs have been documented as far back as Marco Polo and are widely considered to be the progenitor for breeds such as the modern mastiffs and Newfoundland.

How long do Tibetan Mastiff’s live?
Generally 10 – 14 years.

What does “Slow to Mature” mean?
I’ve read they can take 4-7 years to reach physical maturity.  Emotionally, ours were definitely still “teenagers” at 1 year old.
