This Tibetan Mastiff, Big Splash, was just sold for 1 million pounds (about $1.5 million U.S.)and is now the most expensive dog in the world...
They have become highly-prized status symbols for China's new rich. The dogs are thought to be a pure "Chinese" breed and they are rarely found outside Tibet, giving them an exclusivity that other breeds cannot match.
Big Splash had been fed a diet of chicken and beef, spiced up with exotic Chinese delicacies such as sea cucumber and abalone.
That dog eats WAY better than I do.
