According to the Daily Mail
, the Red Tibetan Mastiff has become with world's most expensive dog after being sold for 10 million yuan, or roughly 1.5 million U.S. dollars, to a coal baron in China.
Although the baron dropped some serious money for the dog "Big Splash," the p
ricetag doesn't include the cash it will take to feed the 180 pound pooch.
An adult Mastiff can weigh as much as 286 pounds.
Breeder Lu Liang says Big Splash is "the perfect specimen," justifying his large pricetag.
The ancient breed has been owned by an eclectic group of people including Queen Victoria, King George IV, and Genghis Khan
