Big Splash

Big Splash (Hong Dong in Chinese) is the name of an 11-month-old red Tibetan Mastiff which has became the most expensive dog in the world setting a new record: Big Splash was bought by a coal baron from the north of China for $1.6 million. It weighs more than 180 lbs (81kg) and is still growing, and it is considered a perfect specimen. Its red colour is considered a lucky colour in China, and Tibetan mastiffs are considered it selves as holy animals.

The previous Guinness world record for the "most expensive dog" was set by an 18-month-old Tibetan Mastiff called "Yangtze River Number Two", who was sold for £352,000 ($563,000) in Yushu, Qinghai, China.
