It’s always good to have a dog in the house, unless it could eat you out of house and home. Today we
will be looking at 10 expensive dogs that only the rich could afford. You’d think that the lovable corgi
would occupy the number one slot on this list, but you’d think wrong. Stay tuned to find out what the
most expensive dog is.
Number 10. The Afghan Hound
An ancient member of the sighthound family, the Afghan hound was first bred thousands of years ago
by nomadic peoples of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and northern India. An extremely skilled hunter, the
Afghan was used to bring down both large and small game, including antelopes and perhaps even
leopards. Although many present day experts doubt that leopards were the Afghan's traditional prey,
eyewitness accounts tell of lone Afghans killing leopards by seizing them by the neck and severing the
leopards' spines in their jaws.
They became popular as pets and show dogs starting in the 1970s, and it’s pretty easy to understand
why. It’s widely regarded as one of the most beautiful dogs with their flowing coats and curly tails. They
even require daily hair brushing because their long silky coats become tangled very easily.
You can get one of these beautiful dogs right now for $7000, but don’t think that the cost stops there.
Not factoring in the cost of food and grooming, the health bill for this breed can easily add up, being
predisposed to cataracts and hyperthyroidism, and treating either condition can run you up to $3000
Number 9. The Pharaoh Hound
Aloof and goofy, the Pharaoh Hound can be dated back to around 3000 B.C. It has long been rumored
that the breed originates back to Ancient Egypt, but was recently proven otherwise. Recent DNA analysis
has shown the breed originated in Malta where, instead of being the pet of kings, was primarily used to
hunt rabbits. IN any case, the breed has been shown in previous Egyptian hieroglyphics, which lends
credence to the idea of the Pharaoh Hound existing for centuries.
The Pharaoh Hound is a muscular, athletic breed with a graceful stride. His original purpose was to track
small game by using his talents of sight, sound, and smell. His look exudes an exotic and regal
appearance. He loves to be able to play and has intense bouts of energy. This breed is athletic and excels
at agility and lure coursing.
So, how much to get your hands on the dog of the pharaohs? About $7500 dollars, and that doesn’t
include maintenance costs.
Number 8. The Dogo Argentino
The Dogo Argentino has its origins in the province of Cordoba where it was developed by Dr. Antonio
Nores Martinez in 1928. Originally developed for big game hunting, due to its muscular stature, Dogo
Argentinos are one of the most expensive dogs in the world. Their muscular body allows the doggo to
hunt wild hogs in South America and Asia mainly.
Not really known to be dangerous, they do have a certain predisposition to become very aggressive.
Despite that, they have become very popular pets and the breed successfully combines many features:
he is a long-distance runner and a sprinter, and a ruthless hunter and a pet.
For $8000, you can have one for your own, but then again, maintenance costs will also add up. The Dogo
Argentino is a generally healthy dog with a lifespan of 9 to 15 years. They have a few genetic problems.
The main health issue is deafness. About 10% of dogs from this breed are deaf in one or both ears. And
due to their short coat, they get easily sunburned, and is also prone to hip dysplasia, hypothyroidism,
glaucoma and laryngeal paralysis. Can you imagine the vet bills?
Number 7. The Canadian Eskimo Dog
The Canadian Eskimo dog is one of the rarest breeds in the world and is currently facing extinction with
less than 300 dogs remaining in 2018. They were brought to North America from Siberia more than
1,000 years ago and had been decreasing recently since the 1960s. And because they are so rare, they
are also quite expensive.
Puppies usually costs around $8750 which sounds not that much compared to other dogs in this list. But
then again, health issues drive the maintenance cost of this breed sky high. The breed is very prone to
gastric torsion, entropion, where the eyelid folds over itself, heat intolerance and arthritis.
