This is about living with Tibetan Mastiffs. Kathryn and her husband Brad live on Colorado’s front range with 14 Alpacas and eleven TIbetan Mastiffs.
The Tibetans bred two types of this kind: the Do-Khyi and Tsang-Khyi which is a larger dog than the Do-Khyi. The Do-Khyi are dogs for guarding flocks of sheep of the Tibetan nomadic shepherds or villagers. The Tsang-Khyi, on the other hand, serves as guardians though in this they protect the Buddhist monks or lamas of Tibet.
