Congratulations to Tibetan Mastiff Sierras’ Sasha-Yakone Nanuk, winner of Best In Breed at the 2013 Westminster Kennel Club show that took place in February at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Owners Jim Butler and Ricardo Gallegos.
One of the largest breeds in dogdom, these giants
average 180 [see Jim Butler’s comment below] pounds.
Over 2700 dogs entered the 2013 show – a record-breaker.
Fluffy tails are more than just for show – they can curl over the nose and allow for warmer air to breathe while sleeping in cold climes. Sturdy legs and big foot pads help maneuver over snowy landscapes.
