Barry, I have two Tibetan mastiffs. You might want to rethink your plan. First of all, the Tibetan word for the TM (("Dokhyi") translates roughly as "a dog that you tie up." TM's didn't "wander the village"; they were tied at the village gate to act as a deterrent and an early warning system. (They get their reputation as vicious guard dogs from the foul temper they developed while straining against the chains the restrained them.) While they can be used as livestock guardian dogs, unless you have a six-foot or taller fence around your yard, you should never let them "wander." They will wander up to Canada before they return home for dinner, unless they get distracted in British Columbia and take a detour to Alaska instead. Eventually, they will probably decide to come home. In addition, if you decide to leave them out at night, your neighbors within a half-mile or more are likely to be very upset with all the night-barking. They will warn not only you, but the entire neighborhood, of all dangers, real or imagined.

Don't get me wrong, TM's are great dogs, but not for the reasons you apparently think. If you are interested, take a look here: (WFS)http://www.tibetanmastiffinfo.com/ The closest breeder to you is probably Citadel in Illinois. I think Kathleen has a litter on the way out of a "niece" of my boy by a new Indian import owned by a breeder in Virginia.

TM's are quirky dogs, so you should think very carefully before you get one, let alone two.

That is my parent's Akita/Chow mix, but I claim her as mine.

Re: Crossfit Dogs

My wife bought this dog when we graduated. I don't like pets, but I tend to follow the motto "happy wife, happy life" so we got her anyway. I must say, things are working out pretty well up to this point (5 years). She licks everything in sight and wets herself at the drop of a hat, but she is great with the kids, she doesn't shed, and so far she has not peed in my bed, so we're cool.

Re: Crossfit Dogs

Staci and I rescued Jessie in June. Belgian Malinois mix is the best we can figure. She's at most of our outdoor group workouts.

Daisy: Part Lab, little bit of Border Collie, maybe some Sheppard in there, but 100% heart! Great with the kids. An awsome running and canoeing partner and just an all-round "Good-dog!"
