1. Tibetan mastiff

One of the more ancient breeds, the Tibetan mastiff isn't a true mastiff, despite the hefty price tag of around $3,000 per pup (Vice also reports that one recently went for $2 million!). This breed was made for working but is also a born protector. Courageous, loyal and protective, this is the guy or gal you want with you if you happen across a bear in the woods. But it really isn't appropriate for smaller homes or yards as it needs plenty of room to play.
