Most Expensive Dog Breeds
The Dogo Argentino, also known as the Argentinian Mastiff, was a breed developed in the 1920s by scientists who sought to breed together some of the best qualities in dogs around the world. They were bred from over 9 types of terriers, mastiffs, and hounds, and the result was the modern Dogo- a fearless hunter with great stamina. They are ideally suited to police work, guarding, and tracking, and because they have been so carefully bred, the average puppy costs $3,900.
The Pharaoh Hound is one of the most unique dogs in the world. When it’s excited, a unique trait in the breed causes it to ‘blush’, and its nose and ears will turn bright red. In addition to it being a very unique breed because of this adorable trait, Pharaoh Hounds are also fantastic small-game hunters. These dogs are incredibly fast runners, and can track a scent until they’re worn out. The Pharaoh Hound is one of the oldest domesticated dog breeds in the world, and puppies can retail for up to $5,000.
Originally bred in Siberia, Samoyed dogs are known for their characteristic mane of fluffy, pure white fur. They were used by the Samoyed people as sled dogs and for herding reindeer, and also slept next to their owners to keep them warm in the fierce Siberian winters. They came to England in 1889, and from there were spread around the world as watchdogs, although they’re mostly for show – purebred Samoyeds are exceptionally friendly and loving. A true white Samoyed puppy can cost up to $8,000.
