Default What is the most expensive breed?

While looking at the Friday paper I seen CKC registered Stephens Curs for sale at $200, I also seen an add for a CKC registered Yorkshire terrier for $1800, now that is a big diffrence in price for these breeds and it made me wounder why the big price gap in breeds?
What is the most expensive breed of dog out there or what is the cheapest?

thankyou
Melissa

What are stephen curs?

The most expensive I have seen here are English Bulldogs, going for £1800 each.

Cheapest pure bred dog is probably Border Collies, most of them go for free around here as there are so many of them and loads of people have pups. Although apparently on the mainland where they are less common people actually PAY for border collies which is new to me!

I'm guessing it varies in each country though. Because some dogs will be rare and some virtually unheard of in some places and could be really common in other countries making them cheap.
Like when I first joined this forum, I have never heard or seen an ACD. Or a rat terrier. As far as I know there are no rat terriers in the UK. Never heard an ACD mentioend here either, so if someone in the UK wanted one it would cost a fortune to get one.

people pay $400 for border collies here lol
Stephnes Curs are a hunting dog, I think some kind of hound.
The most expensive dogs I have seen here are Great Danes,Yorkshire terriers and English Bulldogs

That is one cute puppy. Breed or pure bred. There are very expensive cross breeds but don't want to start a fight.

Missy this breed sales on this link cheap. I would venture to say that the Caucasian Mountain Dog is alot higher in prices. Not pretty to me but useful dogs. Check this link of a breeder of this breed, somebody is pricing toooo high?? http://www.blackmouthcur.com/sandridge_kennel.htm Now these dogs are not bad, but I would have no use for one, too lanky looking. short coats however and also useful.

I paid 70 for my border collie, I think that's about $40 in the states, however, I paid 140 for my greyhoundXsaluki. (about $80 in the states).

I have no idea what the most expensive breeds would be. It all is down to personal preference though isn't it? It might not be expensive in 's, but they are worth so much more as companions. I'm sure if I bought a dog for a million pounds it would but as good a friend as a dog I rehomed for nothing!
Dogs are best at being dogs! It is humans that put a price on them.........

DonnaSim, £70 would be roughly $130.
Melissa, the Dogue de bordeuax works out as £1238 roughly, so here the bulldog would still be the most expensive.

I believe the english bulldog is highly expensive I paid $1500 us dollars for ours only to have constant skin problems, breathing etc. It is just what you like, what you find worth the money regardless and is paying alot for any kind make sure u get warrantys or guarantees on it be it mix, rare, etc. We all have our own likes and will pay most anything to obtain an ownership of a puppy regardless. No reason to start fights it is a matter of opinions. Some breeders are money hungry and breed junk, come price reasonalbe and you get an even better puppy, so plunge into whatever fits your needs, wants and likes. No matter the price, just wanted to let you know Missy that I found a cheap breeder for the dog in your book, ha ha. No kiddn we all love certain breeds and will pay. It is a personal choice and our money spent.
