Is dog the man’s best friend? Well can you buy friendship? Anyhow, here is the list of the most expensive dog breeds in the world.
One of the massive, fluffy dogs has become the most expensive dog ever sold. An 11-month
old pup named Big Splash (“Hong Dong” in Chinese) recently sold in the Chinese city of Qingdao for 10 million yuan — about $1.5 million in U.S. dollars. The 3-foot-tall, 180-pound dog is one of a breed that has been around since time immemorial. Tibetan mastiffs are said to have guarded nomad camps and monasteries, and are rarely seen outside of Tibet. Over the past several years, they have become status symbols among China’s growing wealthy classes, driving up their price from a few hundred dollars to hundreds of thousands!
His price can reach up to $ 24,000! The German Shepherd Dog is one of the most widely recognized breeds in the world. The breed is known and favored in many countries for its intelligence, trainability, adaptability and fortitude.
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small breed of Spaniel-type dog, and is classed as a toy dog by most kennel clubs. It is one of the most popular breeds in the United Kingdom. His highest price is $14,000!
The Samoyed which originates from Siberia are excellent companions, especially for small children or even other dogs, and they remain playful into old age. They will instinctively act as herd dogs, and when playing with children, especially, will often attempt to turn and move them in a different direction. The breed is characterized by an alert and happy expression which has earned the nicknames “Sammy smile” and “smiley dog.” His highest price is $11,000!
The Bulldog is a muscular heavy dog with a wrinkled face and a distinctive pushed-in nose. The English Bulldog is popularly used to represent England or the United Kingdom. The English Bulldog breed is the official mascot of the United States Marine Corps and many bases have their own mascot on base. His highest price is $9,000!
Chow chow is developed in China. Chows are an aggressive breed, fiercely protective of their people and property and should only be adopted by experienced dog owners who have the time and energy to devote to proper training and socialization. His highest price is $8,500!
The Rottweiler is a medium to large size dog from Germany. A Rottweiler is self-confident and responds quietly and with a wait-and-see attitude to influences in its environment. It has an inherent desire to protect home and family, and is an intelligent dog of extreme hardness and adaptability with a strong willingness to work, making them especially suited as a companion, guardian and general all-purpose dog. His highest price is $8,000!
The native type of dog, which still exists in Tibet and the Himalayas can vary in temperament within the same litter, raised in the same household. Newspaper reports have suggested that a pair of these Mastiffs have killed tigers while guarding sheep in the highlands of Nepal. His highest price is $7,000. Now although one of these was sold for a whopping $1.5 million it still doesn’t make it as generally the most expensive dog breed.
The Pharaoh Hound is the national hound of the Mediterranean nation of Malta. The Pharaoh Hound is independent-minded, highly intelligent, and occasionally stubborn, yet very trainable when positive methods are used. It is a very sensitive breed and responds poorly to compulsionary training methods and to being physically punished. His highest price is $6,500!
Bearded Collies are an energetic breed, originally intended to work in the Scottish Highlands herding sheep; they also excel at dog agility trials. A loyal and family-friendly dog, the Beardie can add years of pet-ownership enjoyment to the home. His highest price is $5,000!
The Akita or Akita Inu is originating in Japan that should not be confused with the American Akita that was obtained by crossing in the early twentieth century. It was also used to hunt bears.

It’s a little dog barking and majestic appearance. His highest price is $4,500!
