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.

sweetActually they’re a really old breed, but this is the first year that the Tibetan Mastiff will compete at the Westminster Dog Show at Madison Square Garden (Monday and Tuesday).  On show days, if you walk through the lobby of the hotel across the street from Penn Station on 7th Ave, you will see all manner of dogs.  Competitors


Seems that these (born in 2007) are the K-9’s to be of Annhui.
