10 Most Expensive Dog Breeds in the World

Dog breeds are a lot more complex than most people think. They actually have an entire pedigree, which if you know absolutely nothing about animal lingo means they have a family tree. That said, it’s usually the dog’s rarity or purity of breed that drives up the extremely expensive cost.

Never thought it could cost you millions to land your best friend, huh?

This breed usually goes for anything between $4,000 and $10,000. It’s named after the Samoyedic tribe in Siberia, which had originally trained this dog to herd reindeer and pull sleds. The dogs do shed and can weigh as much as 66 pounds. Fun fact: In some parts of the world, people recycle the dogs’ fur to knit winter wear.
