The Most Expensive Dog in the World

2013 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show: Tibetan Mastiff GCH Sierras'Sasha-Yakone Nanuk

Say hello to the most expensive dog in the world as of this date: the great and cuddly Tibetan Mastiff! As much as I'd like to hug a Tibetan Mastiff if I happen to come across one, I'd rather just admire it from afar. Despite the breed's gentle appearance, with its thick fur and bear-like features, it is said to be fierce to people (and perhaps to animals too) that are stranger to it. Granted, it acts as a sweet cuddly bear to its owners and is even gentle with children.

In my country, I'm yet to see someone who owns this breed. In Hong Kong, the demand for Tibetan Mastiffs is growing. Perhaps owning this breed is like owning a Louis Vuitton. It's expensive and gorgeous. The problem is, not all homes are suitable environments for these dogs. An average home in Hong Kong is about 427 square meters. It's too small for a dog that can reach a height averaging between 25 to 28 inches. I'm not sure if these dogs are available legally in Hong Kong. I heard in the news that a lot of these dogs are smuggled from China.
