No wonder he’s got a spring in his step! Tibetan mastiff goes on sale in China for £1m

Some pet owners go to any lengths to pamper their furry friends – but one dog is entitled to feel a million dollars.

‘Emperor’, a Tibetan Mastiff, with his thick double coat, went on sale this week for a staggering 10 million Yuan (£1m).

He was one of more than 1,000 Tibetan mastiffs from across China appearing at a two-day dog trade show in Shijiazhuang, capital of northern China’s Hebei Province, this week.

Not a hair out of place: Emperor the Tibetan mastiff with his owner at the Chinese dog trade show. Emperor was on sale this week for a fur-raising £1 million

The average price being asked for one of the dogs was around 1 million Yuan (£100,000).

The Tibetan Mastiff has become a status symbol in China because they are thought to be holy animals, blessing their owners’ health and security.

But his owner believes Emperor is a particularly handsome catch, offering him out for breeding purposes with a single mating costing half a million Yuan (£50,000).

The Tibetan Mastiff is an ancient breed of dog, originating from the nomadic cultures of Central Asia.
