Here is the new world's most expensive dog.

A Red Tibetan Mastiff has just been sold for nearly $2 million.

A Chinese coal tycoon -- who is also a breeder -- is quoted as saying he considers the dog a good investment.

As a male dog, the mastiff can be hired out to other breeders and may in fact recoup the owner's money in a couple of years.
