WOULD you pay 10 million RMB (S$1.5 million) for a dog? Well, someone has.

A coal baron from the north of China paid just that amount for a red Tibetan mastiff, Big Splash.

The dog, now priciest dog in the world, comes with massive dietary requirements, as they are known to weigh as much as 130kg: Big Splash needs enough chicken and beef to feed his growing 81.8kg frame. And not forgetting the sea cucumber and abalone.

Tibetan mastiffs have become furry status symbols in China, possibly ousting mansions and jewellery.

Not only is red thought to be a lucky colour among the Chinese, but Tibetan Mastiffs in particular are considered holy animals that endow their owners with good health and security.

Tibetan mastiffs, believed to be one of the oldest precious breeds in the world, used to be the best friends of Queen Victoria, King George IV and Genghis Khan.
