Does the dog come with special features?
Agence France-Presse (via ABS-CBNNews.com) reports that a Tibetan Mastiff puppy has recently been sold in China for almost $2 million, according to an article published in the Qianjiang Evening News.
The report noted that the one-year-old golden-haired mastiff was said to be bought by a property developer at a "luxury pet" fair on Tuesday (March 18) in the eastern province of Zhejiang. The buyer reportedly shelled out 12 million yuan ($1.9 million) to purchase the dog.
The Tibetan mastiff partly resembles a lion due to its round mane and enormous size. Its prices have gone up in recent years because it is considered as a prized status symbol for the Chinese elite.
