Dog lovers of the world, how far would you go for man's best friend? And by how far, we mean how much would you spend to own the pooch of your dreams? Believe it or not, pure bred pups can fetch quite a hefty sum on the market, so if you're looking for your ideal doggy mate, you may have to win the lottery first just to be able to afford the selling price. Not to mention food, shelter, vet visits, grooming, and so on.
Of course, just because some breeds of dog are pricier than others doesn’t mean they aren't worth every penny. So if you have a few thousand to spare from your lotto loot, after buying everyone you know a Ferrari, why not consider taking home one of these precious pups?
If floppy ears are your thing, then a Basset Hound is your dog - for the all-time knock-down price of just $1,200 - $1,500. Not only are they fabulously friendly and just too cute to quit, they have an amazing sense of smell as well - handy if you're ever looking for something or someone. The better the breed, the more expensive the Basset, so get that chequebook out!
A great price for a Great Dane, these oversized playful pups come in at $2,000 - minus all the relevant expenses and most likely the extra car you'll have to buy for vet visits. But these gentle giants are a pleasure to have round the house and wonderful with children too. Who knows - you could end up saving on babysitters and nannies in the long run!
Looking for a good guard dog? Then you'll want to look in the direction of a German Shepherd, or Alsatian, as they're also known. These elegant, well-groomed hounds can be fierce protectors when needed, although gentle and kind to their owners. They also make great running partners - and if you can train them to get you out of bed on cold, wet, leave-me-alone mornings, they'll be more than worth your initial investment.
If you thought Great Danes were big, take a step back and take in the full enormity that is the Irish Wolfhound - the largest breed of dog in the world. While they may look intimidating due to their massive size, at heart they're fun, friendly dogs - although as they were originally bred as war dogs, if you ever need an extra level of protection at home, we're sure your Wolfhound would be happy to provide it!
We know that just saying the name 'Rottweiler' can strike fear into the hearts of even the most enthusiastic of dog lovers, but really the only thing scary about a Rottweiler is the price. For $5,000 - $6,000 you too can own one of these strong, don't-mess-with-me dogs - who may look menacing on the outside, but are apparently complete marshmallows on the inside. Don't let too many people in on the secret though - you don't want the Rottweilers to lose their rep!
Got any ideas about which breed of pooch to splash out on? Then get your kennel ready, and fill it with toys, treats, and one of the best dogs money can buy. Sure, it may not be that second home in the south of France, but it'll be a lifelong investment in joy and unconditional love.
