How much can cost a dog? It turns out that a lot. The most expensive dog in the world comes from Tibet and this is the Tibetan Mastiff. It’s a huge shepherd dog weighing 130 kilograms up! Despite his size he’s very friendly.
Recently, a small Tibetan Mastiff has been sold for 1.5 million dollars. These are great money! Why such a price? A few years ago you could buy a dog of this breed for about 200 dollars!
Tibetan Mastiff dogs are rare, but it doesn’t explain the issue of 1.5 million dollars. This price is an effect of new trends and fashion. Since when in China is fashion for all items from Tibet, the price of these dogs has increased considerably.
Another cause of the dog's price is belief of Asians. They believe that the Mastiff dog is holy and blesses owner’s house and bring prosperity! Currently in China Mastiff are very valuable, they represent high social status.
The name of the most expensive dog in the world is Big Splash. This is the perfect healthy specimen with good genes. The current owner spent a fortune, but he knows the trends and popularity of these dogs. I think that he did a good deal. When Big Splash will have offspring, each puppy will also cost a lot of money. The investment will pay for itself.
What do you think about the price of the dog? Is the dog should become a symbol of luxury? I’m waiting for your opinions !
