Most EXPENSIVE Dogs In The World!

October 14, 2019

From the powerful Czechoslovakian Wolfdog
to the nearly extinct Lowchen, here are 10 of the most expensive dog breeds in the world. 10: Czechoslovakian Wolfdog Most people know that modern day dogs are
closely related to the wild wolf, but it looks like the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog is as close
as they can get. The relatively new breed looks almost exactly
like a wolf, and was made by combining German Shepherds and Carpathian Wolves. Priced at close to $1000 USD per pup, the
wolfdog is an amazing combination of powerful and trainable. The wolf dogs were actually used in Czech
Special Forces, and have also been used in hunting and rescue operations. Obedient and brave, they are known to defend
their masters but require special leadership from their owners, due to their inbred pack
mentality. They are mostly used as guard dogs, and are
very sturdy and large animals, able to survive many conditions. Despite their somewhat intimidating appearances,
many wolfdogs are good with children, despite their more reserved attitude around strangers,
but it is important they are familiar with humans from a young age. Regardless, the general rarity and the usefulness
of the breed are what make for a hefty price tag, but it’s still far from the most expensive. 9: Saluki Known as the Persian Greyhound, the Saluki
is an ancient dog breed from old Egypt, Mesopotamia and the surrounding area. Even in the times of the pharaohs, tribes
used to use the vision and hunting skills of Salukis to kill prey in the desert. They have long legs and a big chest, and they
usually hunt prey by running it down. Even though the greyhound is one of the fastest
dog breeds, Salukis are actually faster over longer distance. They are able to clock in close to 42 miles
per hour, and are known for their stamina. Not normally playful, they are sensitive dogs
and are not easily trainable. (Kind of like cats!) However in ancient times, they were able to
coordinate with hawks and camels to bring down prey for their masters. They should normally remain leashed in public
spaces and are not known to be a good breed to be left alone. These graceful breeds are worth close to $2,500
for their amazing and ancient pedigree. 8: Peruvian Inca Orchid With origins from before even the ancient
Incas, comes the Peruvian Inca Orchid, one of the least dog-looking dogs out there. The most noticeable part of the dog is it’s
almost completely hairless, with chocolate or elephant grey colouring. Fast and loyal, the Orchid is hardy and can
survive in almost any climate that we can! Very smart, they are easy to train and will
understand boundaries and commands. They are considered somewhat hypoallergenic
due to their lack of hair and they can almost also be considered tick and flea resistant
because of it. One of the few dog-breeds colonizers found
living in the Inca-empire, they are very used to humans and make great pets. They nearly went extinct after Spanish forces
invaded modern day Peru, but local superstitions that the dogs were magical helped them survive. Not cheap, the Peruvian Inca Orchid can fetch
close to $3000 per dog. 7: Azawakh Another ancient and greyhound-looking, long
legged beauty is the African Azawakh. It was mostly used as a hunting dog for different
tribes in modern day Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso. Almost cat-like in the way it moves, the Azawakh
is known for its speed and graceful presence. They are known to be extremely close and affectionate
with their owners, while more guarded around strangers, making them a great protector dog. Being from warm climates, they are very well
adapted to the heat and have been known to run in over 100-degree weather! (Fahrenheit that is). They are one of the few dog breeds which are
able to hunt gazelle and other speedy prey by running at over 40 miles per hour! They are loyal and independent, and while
unpopular in North America, they are beginning to get a following of breeders. These runners are also pretty expensive, often
costing over $3000 each, still most owners find it more than worth it. 6: Akita Akitas are one of the internet’s favorite
canine pals. These fluffy Japanese dogs are well known
and largely sought after by many North American dog owners. They were originally used in feudal Japan
as protectors of noble families and are still known for their proud demeanor. They are fearless and have even been used
to hunt animals as large as a bear. Their large heads and powerful bodies are
trademarks of the dogs and while they do pretty well with strangers, they are known to be
completely loyal to family members. Many call the breed stubborn and say that
the Akita likes to follow owners from room to room and seems to almost try to communicate
with them. They love to use their mouths and can be easily
trained to retrieve newspapers or slippers. Akitas also have some distinctly feline features
despite there over 100 pound muscular bodies. They clean themselves by licking just like
cats and even stalk their prey in the same way. They need proper training in order to bond
with their owners and normally shouldn’t have a third party trainer. Intelligent and willful, the Akita is an amazing
dog breed, but the pricetag of over $4500, can make it hard for dog lovers to get one
of their own. 5: Rottweiler The loyal and intimidating Rottweiler, is
well known for its power. They were bred to pull old carts for butchers
and were even used to herd cattle. This intelligent animal is originally from
Germany, and is very protective of its owners. Despite their fearsome and aggressive reputation,
most Rottweiler owners actually say the breed is somewhat more relaxed and even gentle with
family members. They require lots of training in order to
find their place within the pack and are therefore not recommended for beginner dog owners. They also have to be properly exposed to others
and trained to be social so that they don’t become overly protective. In fact, this has lead some cities to ban
the dog altogether due to some incidents involving the breed. Despite this, Rottweilers are social animals
and love to be a part of the family. In fact, their loyalty and obedience made
them one of the earliest police and military dogs. That loyalty has a hefty price, and while
it fluctuates wildly between bloodlines, some can cost over $6000! 4: Pharaoh Hound Another ancient breed is the luxurious Pharaoh
Hound, the national hound of Malta. It is said that in ancient times the breed
could be seen hunting gazelles alongside ancient Pharaohs, giving the breed it’s name. Very intelligent and affectionate, the Pharaoh
hound is normally an easygoing breed that is very friendly to any who have the pleasure
of meeting one. Somewhat independent, these dogs still love
attention from their owners and are great at playing with other dogs and children. The most adorable part of the breed is that
it is actually able to blush, and their cheeks and ears will be bright red when excited or
happy. One of the most loving dogs on the planet,
they can even be taught to smile! They are pretty vocal and known as barkers
but mostly bark when left alone. This happy go-lucky animal is used to hunting
prey by its owner’s side and is comfortable meeting new people and exploring new areas. This regal sunshine dog can be worth up to
$6,500…and that’s something that only the dog can smile about. 3: Tibetan Mastiff The huge and powerful Tibetan Mastiff is as
expensive as it is devoted. Normally a guard dog, this breed is known
for being a hard worker. For centuries, they have worked side by side
with people in the mountains of Tibet and are very used to human interaction. A quiet and stubborn dog, they will usually
listen to their owners, but when they believe they are right, there is no arguing with a
Tibetan Mastiff. They are extremely protective and can sometimes
be a little territorial. They will normally not allow many visitors
in their house, however if they are trained to be social from a young age, this shouldn’t
be a terrible issue. While more than a little assertive, they are
unflinchingly loyal and beautiful pets that care deeply for their owners. This massive breed can grow to be 160 pounds! Good thing too because it needs this size
to protect the livestock it guards from predators, like tigers. No joke. The Tibetan Mastiff can cost up to $7000 but
it’s still cheaper than a human bodyguard. 2: Samoyed The fluffy and white Samoyed is the Siberian
ball of adorableness, popular for their distinct appearance. They are actually used in many northern countries
to pull sleds and even hunt reindeer. The Samoyed’s furry coat helps keep it warm,
and it will even share its warmth with cold owners by laying on top of them on chilly
nights. Friendly and dignified, the breed is very
comfortable around humans and can even be seen to smile when excited. A social animal, it is pretty friendly around
new people, though it can sometimes be more than a little talkative. The fluffy coat is beautiful but prone to
shedding, so don’t wear your nice, static-y black sweater around them. However some weavers can use the fur to create
amazingly warm and beautiful jackets and scarves. Companion, heater, friend, and sweater all
rolled into one! All this comes for a price as the Samoyed
is as expensive as it looks at around $8000. 1: Lowchens The rare and royal Lowchen is the pinnacle
of prices. In fact, some bloodlines can cost around $10,000! Known as “little lions”, they are tiny
dogs that were very popular with European nobility around 400 years ago. They were groomed to look like little lions
on purpose and it was often used as a foot warmer for the ladies! Many of these prestigious pooches can be found
in paintings as far back as the renaissance, living in beautiful and luxurious conditions. Social and easily trained, these dogs almost
always place high in dog competitions. They get along with other pets and are great
at adapting to different lifestyles. It sheds little to no hair so they are great
for people who have allergies, so that’s definitely a plus! While at one point they had the title for
rarest breed in the Guinness Book of World Records in the early 1960’s, that title
has been taken away by the Glen of Imaal Terrier, or something like that, although they are
still considered rare. Interesting fact, there are more Giant Pandas
in the world than the Glen of Imaal Terrier! A friendly breed, most owners consider their
playful and loving attitude more than worth the high price tag that comes along with the
breed due to it’s rarity. Thanks for watching…Do you have any of these
