Tibetan Dog Photo
In their homeland, Tibetan's poems were labelled "dro-ki," which means "a tied dog." This is explained by the fact that they were tied around the house during the day and they were released to guard the land at night. Tibetans were used as security, hunting and fighting dogs. The great giants were very read, because they often depended on the security of the family and sometimes on the entire village. The presence of a puppy in the house was noted as a special event for which the whole family was prepared. The choice of a pet had been taken seriously, and the process had been accompanied by a special ritual, after which it had been accepted as a full member of the family. The selection took into account one very important moment, the puppy was supposed to be quietly drifting in the daytime, and at night, there is constant vigilance to protect people and animals from the attack of predators in the future. With a strong colt, a strong hull and a muscle, they could travel long distances in the vitiation of mountains. During long passages across mountains, dogs were transported in special baskets with the help of beasts. By staying at night, Tibetan mastyphoids were released, and they, by choosing a convenient place, kept camp all night from visiting unnamed guests, people and wild animals. Dogs have been surprisingly eased by the harsh climatic conditions of those high places, feeding only once every 2-3 days and intimidating each predator. According to some sources, they even fought with snow bars. In Tibet, the tone of the lion was of particular importance. Tibetan mastifs♪ The most valuable breeders are dogs with a deep, deaf voice that sounds like "good honey gong." To improve his quality, the pets even had warm milk.
In their homeland, these beautiful dogs often put massive purple-coloured collars on their neck, made from the hair of the yak, to give animals a more serious and solid view. This tradition has continued until today.
The roots of Tibetan mastifs go far to the depths of centuries, it's one of the oldest breeds, there's a hypothesis that Tibetans have a direct connection to the descendants of the first dog that showed up on earth 5,000 years ago. Genetic research has also confirmed - they are closer relatives of wolves than the species that look like them by phenotype.
