10 Most Expensive Dogs in the World

Dogs have, for centuries, been tagged as “man’s best friend,” and this has been true for all those years. We treat them like precious gems, shower them with all the love and affection in our hearts, and give them everything possible to keep them safe and healthy. However, one fact that you will find interesting is that some pups are more expensive than a small car. And to own one of these canine companions, you will have to part with a minimum of a few thousand dollars. This depends mainly on the breed of the dog, but it does not change the fact that some dogs are very expensive and might require you to break the bank to get them.

Number 10. Afghan Hound

The Afghan Hound is regarded as one of the most beautiful dogs in the world. It originates from the mountains of Afghanistan, and its ring curl tail and silky smooth hair are its distinguishing features. They usually weigh between 23 and 27 kg with a height ranging from 64 – 69 cm. One of the care requirements of this dog breed is daily hair brushing because its long silky coat becomes easily tangled. Their coat are in a variety of colors such as cream, gold, or fawn, and they have a black face.

The average life of an Afghan Hound is between 10 – 14 years, and if it gets sick, the treatment might cost you a lot more money. They are prone to having health conditions like hypothyroidism and cataract, which means you have to care for them in a special way to prevent the development of these conditions. It is a unique dog breed, and this uniqueness probably justifies the $7000 price tag.

Number 9. Pharaoh Hound

The Pharaoh Hound is known as the national dog of Malta. It is mostly used for hunting rabbits in the Maltese Islands, and another name for the breed is Kelb tal-Fenek, which means “Rabbit Dog” in Maltese. They are very athletic and intelligent, with a bodyweight ranging from 45 to 55 pounds depending on the sex. Their life expectancy is between 11 and 14 years, which means you can have them for more than a decade. Their most positive trait is the genetic makeup that makes them loyal and easy to train. They are suitable for large families and groups. Male Pharaoh Hounds have a height ranging from 23 to 25 inches while female Pharaoh Hounds are between 21 and 24 inches tall.

One peculiar thing about the health of the Pharaoh Hound is that it does not take well to stress. Stress causes severe neurotic and digestive issues, which cost a couple of thousand dollars to treat. This dog breed commands a lot of attention because of its individual appearance and body build.

Number 8. Dogo Argentino

The Dogo Argentino is a heavily-muscled dog capable of hunting wild hogs in Asia and South America. It is well-suited for big game hunting and is quite expensive in the dog market too. The first breed of the Dogo Argentino dates back to 1928, and it was bred with breeds like the Great Dane. Its life expectancy ranges from 12 to 14 years, and they require going for daily exercises regularly. If this breed does not exercise regularly, it is prone to developing serious health issues, which are usually expensive to treat. Some of the health conditions this breed is likely to have in its lifetime include deafness and hip dysplasia, and these can cost up to $1600 or more to treat.

This breed is prohibited in New York City, Colorado, and the United Kingdom because they have dominant physical traits. These do not exactly make them unsuitable as pets as they are excellent pets for large families, and many people who can afford them have enjoyed keeping them.
