Tibetan mastiffs grow in China's Qingzang plateau at 3,000-5,000 meters altitude in cold districts, and have characteristics which were described by Marco Polo, one of the most famous travelers, "as big as a donkey, when running they are as swift as the tiger, roaring as loud as the lion, with good looks".
All Tibetan Mastiffs were collected in the remote villages of Qingzang plateau without good transport facilities, and there were very few crosses between different native breeds.
