Interesting Photo of the Day: It’s a Bear…er, Dog!

It seems that pet photography can be found at almost every corner of the Internet highway. But once in a while, amidst all the “lolcats” and slobbery dogs, you’ll run across a photo of one of our furry friends that is unusual or remarkable in some way. Or in this case, enormously unusual . . .

Giant Tibetan mastiff (source: imgur; click for larger image)

At first glance, this Tibetan mastiff may resemble a grizzly bear without ears, but this giant shaggy creature is actually a dog, believe it or not. Looking like about two of its owner in size, the large dog has a long reddish coat reminiscent of a lion’s mane (one variety of this breed is actually called “Lion Head”). Though not a true mastiff, the ancient breed is often considered a type Himalayan mountain dog since it originated among the nomadic cultures of Central Asia as a hardy guard dog. Today, Tibetan mastiffs bred in the West can weigh up to 180 pounds and still are, as you might guess, formidable guard dogs.
