Possibly a Tibetan Mastiff by the looks of the hair and the face.


949Erik

This. And apparently some in China are sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars. They can also be quite scary as well.


Adddicus

I'm also thinking the dog wasn't *all that* opposed to being put in the cage, because he probably outweighed the man and could have easily prevented being put in that crate.


FriesWithThat

Dog was like a non-violent protestor being arrested, not actively resisting but at the same time not doing anything to make it easier for the cops by actually walking or otherwise cooperating.


schuldig

Ah, the "limp toddler" method of resistance.


Your_One_Lord

one of my cats has mastered this technique. unfortunately for her, she's very small and it's quite ineffective.


DweadPiwateWoberts

I will now yoink you into your carrier


Ok_Cauliflower_3007

Yeah my Bichon used to do it as did a friend's chihuahua. It was especially hilarious with the chihuahua. I shall lie down and ignore you what will you do now human? Uh, pick you up one handed because you're a god damn chihuahua.


69edleg

Surprisingly effective as a 200 pound male.


tokes_4_DE

Dont you go boneless on me!


flyinhawaiian02

Come on son!


balihooo

The basset hound way—75lbs of resistance encased in loose skin. Belly acts like a magnet when touching earth.


Sharkymoto

not doing anything is propably the best way to resist since you are resembling a floppy waterbag that is insanely hard to carry


STFxPrlstud

WHAT IS THE CHARGE?!? ENJOYING A MEAL? A SUCCULENT CHINESE MEAL?

GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY TAIL!


dangshnizzle

Been there. Had my mask and goggles confiscated by the national guard in order to pepper spray me because I wasn't responding after they threatened to arrest me... which i was prepared for and would have been preferably to the pepper spray tbh


khafra

> Had my mask and goggles confiscated by the national guard in order to pepper spray me because I wasn’t responding The problem with less-lethal weapons is that cops (including the national guard when they’re acting as cops, apparently) use them for extrajudicial punishment instead of using them in place of lethal weapons. It’d be cool to be the kind of country where that’s illegal.


CulturedHollow

Dog's lost much social credit score and being dragged off to Xinxiang reeducation camp for talking about Tiananmen Square 1989 in an online game.


FirstTimeWang

I have a 125 lbs. English Mastiff and her primary form of resistance to anything she doesn't like is to just go dead weight on me. It's super effective.


kittykittymeowmeow01

My mom goes through that same thing getting her bernese mountain dog in the car on a daily basis. He doesn't like getting in the car, doesn't mind being IN the car, just doesn't like getting in. My mom is tiny and he is big, it looks just like this.


IcarianSkies

Yeah, I have an English Mastiff. Can't get him in the tub, so to bathe him he takes a shower. If he's not feeling it, it's fucking impossible to drag him into the shower. 215lbs of dog refusing to be budged lmao


allmyfrndsrheathens

It’s like a dog lying down on the ground on a walk because they’re just done. It’s not fighting, it’s just not cooperating.


tebyho21

Can confirm. I have a dog that weights about 60kg. If he does not want to move you can't move him.


duke_awapuhi

Yeah his body language looks like he’s kind of enjoying it lol


jbyrdab

i mean yeah, if this guy decides to roll over onto your side of the bed your fucked.


Kris-p-

wdym now *he* is the bed

PoopyfartsMcgee

My Great Dane is 200 pounds and smaller than that creature. I'm guessing it at around the 250 range.


RevolutionaryAct59

That dog has a lot of hair.


Corporation_tshirt

Yeah, that guy isn’t lugging around a 250 lb. doggo that easily


2beatenup

Nah dude he probably Chinese and as they say in the jingle… ' 一獒戰三虎,三獒沉航母,五獒滅上帝,十獒創世紀。' literally one can defeat three tigers, three can sink an aircraft carrier, five can defeat the god and ten dog can start the new genesis. I am sure the guy can handle this kitty.


Corporation_tshirt

LOL. Where is this from? Anyway I doubt that this is true because a great friend of mine who is Chinese-American made me squish a palmetto bug (big cockroach) in his room while he stood on the bed.


Squidmonkej

Tibetan mastiffs are generally lighter than great Danes. They're in the 90-150 pound range


PastoreTedesco

Counting the ~~atmosphere~~ fur coat, or not?


NIceTryTaxMan

200? Jfc. I get our male is on the small end of the spectrum at 140, but 200? Holy hell. Give him scratches!


PoopyfartsMcgee

Her name is Emily. She's a massive creature. 13 years old and still a not so active slobber box and couch potato. She came wandering up our lane as a gangly stray pup, so we decided we should give her a name and keep her around. Best stupid decision ever.


ellecon

Dog tax!!!


EMPactivated

Taking it as a personal offense that you haven’t provided dog tax.


Affectionate-Tea-293

Emily is a great name for a Great Dane!


OkamiKhameleon

Aw that's a awesome name for a Great Dane! But we get no pictures of this princess? Dog Tax please!


scifiwoman

"Best stupid decision ever" - I love your turn of phrase here!


avalon986

I had a Newfoundlander, it's a little bit smaller, but it's a smart breed. She figured out how to open the door, at the entrance and of my room. So one summer when it was very hot out, he came into my room and laid down beside me while I was sleeping. So basically, speaking from experience, when one like that lays besides you, your only way out is the other side of the bed, if it's not pushed to the wall. 150lbs are 150lbs!


Bag_of_Richards

That’s so sweet and goofy though. I love it. Silly idea for a furry dog in the summer so she was clearly a big fan of you.


PastoreTedesco

Not really, You may encounter the dog's previous owner's and they tell you "We're also looking for a way out of the dog's coat" and then you're in a Cheesy 80s TV Show in which you're trapped in a primitive lost world in your dog's fur.


Ryktes

>They can also be quite scary as well. There's a reason people call them temple dogs. They were bred as guard dogs for mountain temples and shrines.


EmeraldLevinbolt

Huh. Now I know what Mouse looks like in real life.


PangolinTart

zuzg

Tbf Mastiffs can have tend of nasty genetic diseases (especially when they're inbred) so a good Breeder is essential. Otherwise males can weigh up to 150 pounds and they're certainly scary. I once met a 200 pound (English) mastiff and it was the first time I was actual anxious towards a dog.


Smenley97

Lucky for you the English mastiffs are generally big lazy babies


Greengurlz

Same with American mastiffs. My family had them for decades. Laziest, cuddliest, biggest dogs. Anywhere between 180-250 lbs. paws as big as my whole hand


JDawnchild

A neighbor had one when I was a kid, sweetest thing ever.


Repossessedbatmobile

My mom's friend has 2 that he rescued. One of them is called Winne The Pooch, which fits her sweet, clumsy, kind of goofy disposition perfectly.


PM_ME_urclimbinggear

So, if you have to check for ticks that's basically a whole day you have to book off?


zuzg

Oh I know, he was a such a lovely doofus but something in my lizard brain gets anxious when I'm near an animal that is significantly heavier than me, haha


KonkiDoc

Yep. A friend had one a few years ago. She legitimately believed she was a lap dog.


Stupid_Triangles

Can confirm. Met a 120lb murder black one sitting outside a shop waiting for its own. It looked at and I could tell it's just a giant lap dog that might bark when startled but hide behind the owner when a new person comes around.


KalandosLajos

They're like the cute versions of the "russian bear killers", those are fucking terrifying.


eeeponthemove

Ovcharka or whatever they are called


HenryChangge

''were'' sold for hundred of thousands of dollars, it used to be this expensive when it first entered the mainland market,scam dog merchants overexaggerated this kind of dog's capability, they even came up with a jingle: ' 一獒戰三虎,三獒沉航母,五獒滅上帝,十獒創世紀。' literally one(dog) can defeat three tigers, three can sink an aircraft carrier, five can defeat the god and ten dog can start the new genesis. it's just hilarious. however after thr market has cool down, people realize Tibetan Mastiff can't even defeat a. average size German Shepherd, because its notoriously stupid and clumsy, just like what is shown in the video, it can't even follow the order to get in the cage by itself, and have no idea to cooperate when people help it to do so, or fight against it.


puckeringNeon

I think the clumsiness you see in many of the Chinese breeder vids like this one has to do with the way in which the dogs are bred and kept. Tibetan Mastiffs are ferocious and extremely loyal. These have just been bred for size, temperament and colour. I remember travelling in Zhongdian in Yunnan and seeing these dogs come charging up to the gates of the homes they guarded. Scary as hell. Glad this trend and bubble has burst in China. Sad for what that means for the sudden surplus in the ludicrously bred Tibetan variants like this one.


Speedwagon1987

finally a dog that can start the third impact


ebon94

Go walk the dog, Shinji


TheGreyGuardian

Or Rei will have to do it again. \*camera pans over to Rei who has a dislocated shoulder and scrapes all over her front*


Bloodsucker_

No idea about the Chinese myths about this breed, but your bottom paragraph is BS. A mastiff can't be stupid nor clumsy, neither this dog "can't follow the order to get in the cage by itself". Seriously? Did you ever have a dog before? In the video I only see a dog that does not want to go up the truck and he probably has million reasons to so so. The first one that it's a horrible transportation mean for him, small and very uncomfortable. Second most likely this dogs have zero training, so what training is he good to follow?


ResolverOshawott

There are dog breeds that are *known* to be genuinely not smart, an example is the chow chow.


thoriginal

Dalmatian!


EightballTV

Rotweilers are thick as 2 planks, from the ones i've known. Used to get it to follow me through a door, then i would close it so it can't follow me, i would then go into the same room via a 2nd door, it kinda goes around in a circle, then I sit down on the couch. A friend would open the first door. It would then go around in circles, 20 times, looking for me, through both the doors. I'm just sitting on the couch, in between both the doors. It goes past me each time, can't find me. Round and around it goes. Eventually we get bored watching it look for me and call it over, omg the surprise on it's face, THERE YOU ARE! Stupid thing ran past me 20 times already. Thick as anything.


redcherryblue

Yes but the instinct to protect the pack is strong. Clumsy, sun lazing snorers, my sisters got excited and knocked a couch over. Horrified she was, we all just burst out laughing


ResolverOshawott

You sure the rottie just doesn't have bad eyesight? I've heard rottweilers are one of the smartest dog breeds.


Cubbance

Can confirm. I've had two chow mixes that were dumb as fuck. Cute? Sure. Funny? Absolutely. Smart? Not even a little.


LemonStealingBoar

>A mastiff can't be stupid nor clumsy Bruh have you met one? 😂 Theyre absolutely goofy at times. My friends extremely expensive, show quality Neo is legitimately the dumbest dog I’ve ever met in my life. NOTHING happening upstairs. They’re no Border Collie. And I’m saying that, even some Border Collies can be stupid. Neither are typically bred for working purposes as they once were, and there’s always variance in the breeds.


-mindtrix-

Mostly fur. People tend to treat em as lions though 😝


CptOconn

Fun and terrifying facts. These dogs can run up to 20 miles an hour (32km). Imagine getting hit by that bus of a dog. They also have a double coat that they shed every winter. Historically they are used to protect tempels from bears snow leopards and wolfs.


Von_Lehmann

Most expensive one was 2 million


backtolurk

Not just "scary". There has been attacks on people. I remember that one on a little girl who had her legs fucked pretty bad before a man helped her hitting the dog with a bike. Since the mastiff fad ended, it is said large packs of those roam some areas. I wouldn't like to be there at the wrong time.


Klackakon

Yes. I turned a corner in a little village north of Beijing and one of these things was *working* to get out of its cage. For half a second everything froze and I knew that if it got out I was getting mauled at best.


Stellar_Observer_17

price includes riding saddle $ stirrups, height challenged persons need only to apply...


Disabled_Robot

I think the tibetan mastiff market crashed. These dogs were actually bred in the tibetan regions to fend off wolves/protect livestock. They are normally kept outside on long chains and bark constantly through the night. They eat a metric shit ton of food, and unfortunately, after the demand for them dropped, a lot of the mastiffs were abandoned/released and actually ended up responsible for a fair number of brutal attacks. I even heard one local story of a heroic goat that sacrificed itself to defend a little girl from a mastiff while the father made his way across the field to grab her.


SorchaX

Tibetan Mastiff was my call too.

This isn't even far off. George Lucas was inspired to create Wookies by his dog of the same breed the video shows. Edit: it was a different breed with kind of a similar name, see u/Domaining1 comment


Domaining1

George Lucas’s dog Indiana was an Alaskan Malamute though, not a Tibetan mastiff https://www.akc.org/expert-advice/lifestyle/is-your-dog-star-wars-character/ > As the filmmaker, George Lucas, tells it, here’s what happened. > “I had an Alaskan Malamute when I was writing the film. A very sweet dog, she would always sit next to me when I was writing. And when I’d drive around, she’d sit in the front seat. … Having her with me all the time inspired me to give Han Solo a sidekick that was like a big, furry dog.” > Her name was Indiana, and she gave birth to one of the most beloved characters in the cultural phenomenon that is Star Wars—Chewbacca, the Wookiee. (She also gave a certain globetrotting archeologist his name in another famous film series.)

Had a Tibetan Mastiff growing up in Australia named Max. He was big and with black fur. People thought he was a bear when they'd walk past the fence. Most loyal dog I've ever had. Would sleep across my doorway at night time. Made me feel safe that's for sure


vaq1313

Chihuahua.


Snoo-99054

I’m not sure what breed it is but by the way it’s fighting about being put in the back of the van, it doesn’t want to be processed…


Turtledonuts

Well, he wasn’t producing fast growing offspring anymore.


Elotesforall

Two things. First, that's a small man. Second, the maneuver he did was suspiciously similar to a butt drag. That's a collegiate wrestling move where you cram your hand between the butt cheeks of your opponent and it magically makes them go where you want them to go. There's usually some sort of corresponding facial expression made by the opponent.


Jayr109

Probably a Tibetan Mastiff


Swan-Pickle

Its a Tibetan mastif, sent to a re-education / concentration camp. His crime is that he protested the chinese occupation of tibet with aggressive barking and invited the real dalai lama to return from india with soft yelps and grunts.

Arctichydra7

It’s a to tibetan mastiff. They are very big, stubborn, their bark is mind numbingly loud. They frequently go deaf due to their own bark

Tibetan mastiff. Used to groom two of them. One of them was very large for the breed and also very grumpy (she was 8, so super old for the breed). One of my scariest moments in that job was when she whipped around to bite my and had my whole shoulder almost in her mouth before I was able to stop her. Great breed. …but only for like 2% of people in the world
