Meet The World's Most Expensive Dog
In what could be the most expensive purchase of a dog ever, a Tibetan mastiff dog was purchased for almost two million dollars in China by a property developer. This ancient breed is seen as a status symbol, with its large size and long coats. The pup (seen above on the left) weighs nearly 200 pounds and is 31 inches tall. The dog's breeder said that his dogs “have lion’s blood and are top-of-the-range mastiff studs. Pure Tibetan mastiffs are very rare, just like our nationally treasured pandas, so the prices are so high.”
There is no doubt that this is one special dog but we like to think there are plenty of equally priceless pups up for adoption at local pounds and animal shelters. Our friends at Life in the Dog House remind us that for very little money you can find the perfect rescue pet for you.
