Having a dog is akin to having a best friend who will always be there to listen and never judge you. Not only that, but they can never tell anyone your secrets and they’re always happy to see you when you get home from a hard day’s work.
While you can’t put a price on that kind of unconditional love that having dogs gives us, there are breeds out there that cost a little more than the average beagle.
People choose different dog breeds for various reasons and these breeds can start to add up in the money department. Below, we give you the ten most expensive dog breeds in the world.
10. Basset Hound ($1,200 to $1,500)
Basset hounds are known for having ears that make it look like they could simply fly away from you at any moment. These faithful companions have a great temperament and sense of smell. You’ve just got to love those droopy eyes, ears and everything else. Depending on the show quality, these pups can run you anywhere between $1,200 and $1,500. They’re so cute and worth it, though!
9. Bernese Mountain Dog ($2,000)
The Bernese Mountain Dog looks very similar to the St. Bernard but that is because they are both from Switzerland. These guys are very affectionate dogs and are easy to train, so the higher price tag makes sense. For this kind of dog, it is best to have a huge yard for him to run free.
