Tibetan Mastiff Puppies



Tibetan Mastiff Puppy Buyer Questionnaire

Due to large number of questionnaires that are received, those with blank or missing information will not be considered.

Please note!! Before completing our questionnaire please note that the Tibetan Mastiff Breed is not suitable for apartment, condo or townhome living, you must have a reasonably-sized yard. A securely fenced yard with a physical fence is a requirement for me to consider placing a puppy in your home. A kennel run located in your otherwise unfenced yard is NOT sufficient.

I feel that electronic, invisible / underground fencing is also not suitable for this breed. Please read this article about the Tibetan Mastiff and invisible fencing before you consider bringing this breed into your home with the intention of using this type of containment.
