Tibetan Mastiff

Tibetan Mastiff, this ferocious dog was said to be first introduced to the West by Marco Polo in 1257 in his account of what he called “…. a dog tall as a donkey with a voice as powerful as that of a lion.”
It was quite rare to encounter a Tibetan Mastiff in the wild and a great luck to have photographed it with Nikon D3X with AF-S VR 70-200/2.8G IF-ED.
