Though all dogs are wonderful, these dogs are among the most expensive in the world. Whether their breeds are prized or they are exceptionally rare, the reasons are multiple. Keep on reading to learn about the 11 most expensive dogs on the planet.
Tibetan Mastiff – $1.9 Million
Only a few years ago a Chinese real estate mogul made the history books when he shelled out nearly $2 million dollars for a Tibetan Mastiff. Tibetan Mastiffs are giant dogs known for their calm demeanor, floppy tongues, and gorgeous mane of fur around their head. The Mastiff was sold at a Chinese ‘Luxury pet Fair’ where it fetched numerous bids until the unidentified man landed the winning price. The reason for this huge price point is that purebred Tibetan Mastiff’s are exceedingly rare in China and thus have become a sort of status symbol for the uber rich and flamboyant. The bear-like Mastiff weighed in at 200 pounds while standing almost 3 feet tall. Prior to this sale the record was $1.5 million for a red Mastiff named Big Splash back in 2011. With such a focus on status at this level of Chinese business we can pretty much promise that the record will be broken once more and probably not too far into the future.
English Bulldog – $4,500
While Bulldog’s get stereotyped all over the world, English Bulldog’s are pushing to get their reputation cleaned. English Bulldogs are ultra likeable, squat creatures that can be had for a small fee of $3,000. English Bulldogs live around 10 years and they are incredibly affectionate toward members of their family, These big dogs demand a ton of healthy dog food in order to really focus and hone in on a long and healthy life. As lovely as the English Bulldog is, the bred does tend to run into quite a few health issues later on in life. So you’ll need to be ready for potential vet bills once you decide to adopt a dog of this variety. We highly suggest sticking to organic dog food while spending time at dog training schools. This way you can get a well behaved and healthy English Bulldog, thus eliminating some of the breed risk.
