World’s Most Expensive Dog Costs 1.5 MILLION Dollars!
That’s a lot of money for dog food! Tibetan mastiffs are especially rare and owners will pay a pretty penny to own one of this majestic breed. But this price tag takes the cake!
A Chinese coal industrialist drop $1.5 million on a red Tibetan mastiff, beating out the previous most expensive dog record (also a Tibetan mastiff) of $582K. This dog is 180 pounds and he’s only 11 months old!
Named Hong Dong or “Big Splash,” the rare pooch was fed only beef, chicken, abalone and sea cucumber. His breeder, Mr. Lu, believes Big Splash will make an excellent breeding dog, as Tibetan mastiffs are quickly becoming status symbols on the level of limos, super cars, and diamonds.
Some historic figures who were Tibetan mastiff owners include Queen Victoria, Genghis Khan, and even Buddha.
These dogs are thought to be lucky charms and spiritual to the level that some monks believe that they are reincarnations of monks and nuns who didn’t make it to heaven.
