Black Tibetan Mastiff Believed To Be The Most Expensive Dog In History
Chinese bloggers have had a field day with the story of Mrs. Wang and her 4 million RMB "master"
Several Chinese- and English-language outlets are reporting the sale of a black Tibetan Mastiff to a millionaire from China’s northern Shaanxi province for 4 million yuan (appx. $600,000), which, if an accurate figure, would make this the most expensive dog in history. As the AFP reports (via Sohu), the buyer — named only as “Mrs. Wang” — arranged an extravagant arrival for herself (and her new purchase) in the city of Xi’an:
A convoy of 30 black Mercedes-Benz cars, led by two sports utility vehicles, drove to the airport Wednesday to pick up the pair, who had arrived from the Tibetan-populated province of Qinghai in China’s northwest.
Photos of the event posted with the report showed a committee of dog-lovers holding up a long red banner welcoming the mastiff to Xi’an.
