When you think luxury you usually don’t think your dog hey makes sense after all these mongrels are known for sniffing their own well you know, and let’s not forget that if someone says you’re in the doghouse that’s not a good thing but today we want to throw all your preconceived notions aside, because some dogs are considered extremely rare, and that makes them extremely expensive. think like two million dollars expensive, get ready for all the dirt on rare doggies.
The first high-class hound is the Azawakh breed, a dog that originated in West Africa in the countries of niger Mali, and Burkina Faso. the defining features of this beautiful and exotic breed are its short and incredibly fine coat of fur which can come in a variety of colors including red, tan, black, blue, and brown. as well as its rather bony frame but don’t take that as an insult as a walk being thin makes them particularly aerodynamic and perfect for hunting in the arid sands of the Sahara desert, in fact, scientists believe this breed of dog has been hunting everything from small hairs to gazelles for over 1 000 years, and they’ve been particularly good companions to the Tuareg nomads native to this region. They have an elegant look, but they are fiercely loyal and fearless hunters and they are particularly rare. Especially among breeders outside of the West African region without shipping as a walk dogs can cost up to two thousand five hundred dollars. we don’t even wanna think what that number jumps up to with shipping.
Next up we’d like to introduce you to stabyhouns, a soft mouth retriever that has a knack for hunting duck and other birds, originating in the Netherlands. these dogs are known for their wonderfully obedient gentle and patient natures, they are also incredibly independent, so hey if you’re a cat lover maybe a Stebyhouns is the pooch for you they are most commonly black or white, but it’s not unheard of for stabys to come in brown and white. unfortunately another fur color combination orange and white are almost entirely extinct, if your staby is orange and white you’ve got one of the rarest dogs in the world. stabys are also a rather inquisitive breed and if you’re not paying attention they can get themselves into trouble real quick, but despite this, they are known for being incredibly good family dogs and are also known for their all-around skill. the set needs a hunter to go with the staby, retriever yep stevie does that too, how about a best friend who will stick with you till the end yeah that’s the staby just be ready to pay for it purebred stevie hounds can run from 1 500 to 2 250 and again the price can be even higher if you have to import it from overseas.
New Guinea singing Dogs
When we say singing, we mean it. These unique and extremely rare dogs are known for their unique barks; they sound eerily like a yodel and the harmonic sounds they produce have been compared to humpback whales. Better make sure you’re a fan of their tunes, because these little cuties are known for their incredibly long lives. It’s not unheard of for them to live 15 to 20 years that’s going to be a lot of dog yodeling. now what makes them so rare well until 2016 none had been seen in their natural habitat for about 50 years, a pack of singing dogs were stumbled across by an expedition in Papua Indonesia, there were reportedly only 15 in the pack at the time, arguably these little canines could be considered the rarest dog on earth. Now before you hop a plane to pick up your perfectly pristine and priceless pooch we ought to tell you that due to there only being about a hundred of these dogs in capacity, buying one could easily cost you five thousand dollars. and make no mistake these are truly wild animals, they aren’t good with families and can be very stubborn to train, but if you did manage to train one just think of the tick-tock videos you could make, a dog singing Billy Eilish, well yeah we’d watch that.
Our next rare breed is the Thai ridgeback, not to be confused with the Norwegian Ridgeback, which is a dragon from the harry potter franchise. come on people this is science, not fantasy here, they are an incredibly smart and headstrong breed and are known to walk all over owners who don’t assume a leadership position in the family pack, but if you’ve got what it takes they are fiercely loyal and act as fantastic watchdogs. that would be a distinctive fur pattern which actually grows in the opposite direction on its back, creating a sort of ridge feature it’s a really rare quality, in fact, only two other dogs in the entire world have such a feature the ridgeback can come in black, blue, red, or yellow. and their distinctive ridge can even come in eight different patterns. hey if you’re a dog lover collect them all, only make sure you save up for them the average going price here, is about 1500 one thousand five hundred dollars, and if you’re looking for a top breeder who can produce the papers to prove a superior lineage, then expect to pay up to 10000 ten thousand dollars. These dogs are kind of the Ferrari of hounds and they even come with built-in spoilers in the form of that ridge on their back.
next up we’ve got a real cutie it’s the lagotto Romagnolo, and oh my gosh look at those curls. so adorable. this little bundle of fluff hails from Italy and there they are known as the truffle dog due to owners utilizing their incredible sense of smell to sniff out truffles in the woods and that’s what makes them so darn special because while other dogs can be used to find truffles legatto is considered the best in all the world what else are these doggies known for well we already mentioned their undeniable cuteness, which in Italy would be called Carino, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that these fluffers are pushovers. Legati are diligent and extremely hard workers; they won’t let you down when sniffing out the truffles. a rare and expensive delicacy on their own which might come in handy because you’ll have to sell quite a bit of truffle to afford your newfound hound, a lagotto Romagnolo puppy can go for as much as 2500 two thousand five hundred dollars, but again just remember to do a few lucrative truffle hunts and you’ll be good to go.
we’re sure our next dog is going to put you in a good mood and that’s because it’s none other than the Mudi breed of dog. This canine comes from Hungary and evolved from pooly german spitz and pumi breeds. They are very active, highly intelligent, and known as fantastic working dogs. They are also quite rare, with only a few thousand located in their home country of Hungary and even less scattered throughout all of Europe. but if you need a sheep or cow herder this may be the dog for you and on top of that they are one of the most reliable search and rescue dogs around you want the dog equivalent of robin to your batman, go with the Mudi well if you can cough up the 1 500 bucks to own one and that’s on the low end these dogs can go for even more if you go to the top Mudi breeders in Hungary and Finland. into big game hunting there is a rare dog out there that may be perfect for you it’s the Karelian bear dog and it has an acute sense of smell is well known for working cooperatively is a strong independent breed and loves to be on the hunt, that being said make sure you’re up to the challenge of raising one, they can be rather territorial and its headstrong nature can make it difficult to train for first-time dog owners. but this medium-sized spits is also known for its dense coat of fur and its incredible athleticism which is perfect for taking down large game and it won’t bark until the targeted beast is taken down, this one is truly a ninja warrior and they can cost up to 1700 one thousand seven hundred dollars.
Karelian Bear dogs
Let’s head to Malaysia for our next mongrel, the tolomians. They are thought to have bred to be hunting dogs and for keeping unwanted vermin away from homes, but the truly astounding fact about these dogs is that scientists believe this rare breed may be the missing link between the African basenji and the Australian dingo. own one of these dogs and you own a piece of evolutionary history. they are extremely intelligent and have a keen sense of what’s going on around them. They will be sure to let you know of any potential threats or danger, but their defining characteristic is their insane climbing ability. You heard that right, it’s thought that this breed developed the ability when they could climb ladders in their ancient past to reach their owner’s homes. on average these dogs can go for 1 300$ but that number can climb up to three thousand dollars.
sweet caroline is the name of our next rare and exotic breed. it’s the Carolina dog and they first arrived in America when they accompanied the paleo Indians across the Bering land bridge that connected Asia to America over 200 000 years ago. Believe it or not, they are still living wild in Georgia and South Carolina, but have also been found in Pennsylvania and even Ohio. They have a fox-like snout and distinctive pointed ears and have striking similarities to Australian dingoes. all that time in the wild gave them an innate pack mentality, which means they will be cautious of strangers but ecstatic when their family is around, believe it or not, they aren’t too expensive you can get a purebred Carolina dog puppy for only about 500 five hundred dollars, hey that ain’t too bad for a rare breed.
Alright, we talked about the cute, the cuddly, the pack leader, the one who sings. but as far as price goes none of these compare to our last lassie on the list. This is the story of a cute adorable golden-haired Tibetan mastiff puppy all the way from eastern province in China. who has sold for almost 2 million dollars well 12 million yuan to be exact, which comes to just about 1.95 million dollars, which is insane right? the breeder claims that this particular mastiff has lion’s blood and judging by the fact that they are 80 centimeters that’s 31 inches tall and weigh 90 kilograms or almost 200 pounds, we gotta say he might be right, the breeder also claims that this particular breed could be compared to the nationally treasured pandas, which are also located in china the mastiff dogs have become synonymous with wealth and status. they are an ancient breed with distinctively long hair and yes we have to agree they are cute but two million dollars, cute well we’ll let all you millionaires and billionaires out there decide that one for yourselves. hey, we love our furry friends just as much as the rest of you but some of these prices get a little out of hand, yes we realize that these are some of the rarest most talented dogs in the world. I mean come on the new guinea singing dog actually yodels people, when the price tag is up in the 2 million range, yeah you lost us. We say that the richest have their expensive canines because the rest of us are just fine adopting from a local shelter, although we gotta say if you’re gonna get a rare dog might as well make sure it’s one of the rare breeds we talked about here on the richest.
Is a big or small dog better
Over hundreds of years of selection, an incredible number of
different breeds have been bred: from the smallest Chihuahuas to giant dogs. And sometimes
the choice is obvious, given easily, but some future owners choose between a small and a large
dog, evaluating all the advantages and disadvantages. Comparison of large and small dogs Life
span Larger individuals have a shorter lifespan than small ones. Representatives of large
breeds age faster and are more prone to joint and other diseases. Research by scientists,
based on the study of more than 56,000 dogs of 74 different breeds, has shown that for every 2
kg increase in weight, life expectancy decreases by about 1 month. On average, large animals
live 7-9 years, while small ones can live twice as long. Nervousness Small animals have a
reputation for being slightly irritable and nervous animals. Such behavior can be genetically
inherited, but upbringing also plays an important role in the formation of animal behavior. Large
and small dogs need socialization, education, during which the boundaries of what is permitted,
hierarchy are established. Under certain circumstances, small pets behave aggressively, which
can be justified by the fear of a small animal trying to protect itself. Training With the right
approach to training and motivation, physically and mentally healthy animals of any size lend
themselves to training, just some need more time, while others grasp everything on the fly.
Small breeds are not able to concentrate for a long time, so for them classes are shortened to
5-7 minutes, otherwise the pet will lose interest. But during the day, you can do several
approaches to the study of this or that exercise, working out the team. Physical exercise Every
pet needs minimal daily physical activity to maintain weight and normal health. Size is not
always an indication that large individuals need more exercise than small ones. It all depends
on the characteristics of the breed, some animals are active, energetic and they need active
games, training (Jack Russell Terrier, Border Collie), while others are less active by nature (Shih
Tzu, Pug, Chow Chow). Guard and sentry qualities Instincts have not been canceled; some
breeds have well-developed guarding qualities. Large dogs look intimidating, frighten off with
formidable barking and impressive size. But small animals also know how to warn of danger, the
arrival of intruders, although they will not be able to fully protect family members.
Representatives of some breeds, although small in size, but with the spirit of a strong and
formidable dog, are endowed with courage and loyalty. Smell Regardless of the breed, dogs
have their own odor, which intensifies under certain conditions, for example, in heat, when the
coat gets wet. But small breeds smell less, due to the fact that their coat gets dirty less, some of
them have a poorly developed undercoat, it is easier to care for them and keep the coat clean.
The control Small breeds are less powerful due to their small size. During a walk, such a dog is
easier to keep on a leash, even if it pulls. The small dog can be picked up or carried in a carrier
if it misbehaves. A large pet is not easy to hold if he jerks after the object that has attracted his
attention. Even an adult and strong man can hardly keep a large animal, let alone a woman or a
child. A place It is believed that larger breeds need more space. The opinion is partly true, but it
all depends on the level of activity of the animal and its lifestyle. Working dogs, for example,
Siberian Husky, Border Collie, need frequent physical activity, individuals with a thick undercoat
are less tolerant of room temperatures, especially in winter. To keep them in the house, you
need to allocate more space for the couch. To meet the exercise needs, you will need to walk
your pet more often. Therefore, when choosing, the determining factor is the temperament of
the animal, the level of energy, working qualities. For example, living conditions may not be
suitable for shepherd and sled breeds. Care A large pet is more difficult to care for than a small
one. It will take more time and effort. Bathing requires more space, more water consumption.
Drying of wool takes longer, naturally the coat can dry longer than a day, especially if the animal
has cords. Longer trimming, claw trimming can be a problem, and family assistance may be
needed to secure and hold the animal. Food Many future owners choose small dogs because
they need less food than large dogs. This circumstance allows you to acquire a four-legged
friend and save on its content. Large animals require more calories to maintain their weight and
get the energy they need. Consequently, you will have to spend more money to buy
ready-made feed or natural products. Money spendings Small dogs are better than large dogs
in terms of economy. The maintenance of small breeds requires less money, because they
consume less food, medicines are cheaper (less dosage), less cosmetics, even clothes and
accessories are cheaper. Children in the family Regardless of size, pets jump and run. During
the game, large and small dogs can accidentally drop a child, and if handled roughly, they can
bite. Among the many breeds, there are those that are tolerant of children, much depends on
the temperament of the animal. A small pet may not show friendliness to a child, but a large
one, for example, a Newfoundland, may become an excellent “nanny”. In any case, you should
not allow children to be alone with the animal, and it is also necessary to instill in children the
rules of respectful treatment of animals. The comfort of family members should be taken into
account. If the child is afraid of large dogs, then it is better to give preference to a small breed.
How do you change ownership of a dog?
There are many situations in which there is a change in the owner of a dog. The previous owner
could die, some are forced to part with the pet due to the move, others are no longer able to
keep the animal and take care of it due to age, illness, increased employment. Where to attach
a dog If the search for a new owner among friends and relatives has not been crowned with
success, then there are only two options left. Submit an advertisement in the media or arrange
an admission to the shelter. Advertisements can be placed electronically on popular Internet
resources (updated daily), submitted to a newspaper, and paper advertisements can be pasted.
In any case, the ad indicates the age of the animal, gender, weight, height, temperament
characteristics, make clear (better color) full-length photographs of the dog, describe possible
health problems, but pay more attention to positive characteristics. You can send an animal to a
shelter by contacting it directly or through charitable foundations dealing with animal problems in
the city. However, it is not always possible to attach a dog to a shelter, since they are often
overcrowded. Veterinary clinics can help. Potential owners should be asked questions to make
sure they can take care of the animal. After the dog is with the new owner, you should not visit
it. The adaptation of a pet to a new family will be faster if it does not return to the past. This will
minimize the animal’s own sadness and stress. In addition, it will be unpleasant to see how the
pet gradually begins to move away, ceases to be happy with the meeting and even barks.
If proper attention is paid, care is provided, then the dog will quickly get used to the new owner
and new living conditions. How a dog copes with a change of owner If the pet is middle-aged or
elderly, or socially dependent, then parting with the previous owner can turn into depression.
Dogs are sensitive to changes in their life, it is not for nothing that it is recommended to form a
lifestyle according to a certain repetitive schedule. The animal may lose interest in favorite
things and activities, it may have a decrease in energy, lethargy, may refuse to eat or eat little,
interact less with people. The pet tries to retire, preferring to sleep during the day, while
restlessly sleeping at night. Prolonged depression is a reason to see a veterinarian. Some pets
show signs of destructive behavior, for example, chewing objects, barking or howling, and
behaving anxiously, trying unsuccessfully to find a previous owner. Some animals do not show
any signs of emotional distress, though. How to speed up adaptation It is important to help cope
with sadness, to do everything so that the dog gets used to the new home and becomes
attached to the new owner. Let your pet explore the house or fenced yard, although in most
cases it will try to find its way out and escape from unfamiliar surroundings or hide. Therefore, it
should not be left unattended. You only need to go out on a leash. The dog is given its own
space. A sleeping place is arranged in a quiet place where the animal can feel safe. A favorite
toy helps to enhance the sense of security. You can use the old bed, since the pet experiences
stress from the change of place of residence, and familiar objects will give more calmness and
confidence. The pet is surrounded with care and love. They constantly interact with the animal,
encouraging it to play, walk. You need to act gently, affectionately, drawing the animal’s
attention to new toys, family activities, slowly moving on to learning simple commands, offering
treats. Speak softly, amicably, pronounce the nickname more often. At first, try not to leave your
pet alone at home. Thus, a trusting relationship with the animal is built. Dogs are creatures of
habit. Therefore, it is important to gradually build a daily routine that includes walking, feeding,
hygienic care at the same time. Until the animal has adapted, has not begun to feel comfortable
in the new environment, it should not be overloaded with new information and emotions. Let him
spend some time in the house, walking around the house for a short time. You need to gradually
introduce new places and people. A sharp change in the usual diet, combined with the
experiences of the animal, can lead to indigestion (diarrhea). Therefore, adjustments to the diet
and the introduction of new products are made gradually. Food is made more attractive due to
delicious delicacies, special sauces, which are lightly seasoned with food, giving it a tempting
aroma and taste. The adaptation process can take from several days to several months. It is
especially difficult for a dog to get used to a new owner if the pet had a strong attachment to the
previous owner. The speed of adaptation largely depends on education and socialization.
Socialized animals adapt faster. Dogs are pack animals. A change of leader is a completely
natural process for them, and sooner or later, the pet will get used to new conditions. Human
behaviors are often projected onto pets who become family members. But not all of them are
painful for separation, and not every dog experiences stress when changing owners. Often, the
drama is created due to the feeling of guilt that for some reason there is no way to keep the
Feed rates for dogs by age
Before you get a dog, you need to decide not only on the breed, but also on the upcoming
expenses for the purchase of pet food. The correct calculation of a single portion is also
important for the health of the animal, since overfeeding can cause obesity, and being
overweight, in turn, leads to other serious problems.
How to calculate the correct portion for feeding dogs
The amount of food for dogs depends on several factors:
● pet breeds;
● weight characteristics;
● the age of the animal.
It is quite natural that large-sized individuals (Alabai, Bulldogs, German Shepherds, Labradors)
need twice as much food as indoor ones (Spitz, Pug, Chihuahua, Miniature Pinscher, Yorkie).
“An adult animal should be given up to 1 kg of dry food per day, while a puppy should be given
If the dog is kept only on the street, then its appetite is higher than that of a relative, which is
taken out into the fresh air only for a walk. Under mixed conditions of detention, you need to
select your own nutritional standards. Active individuals burn energy twice as fast as lazy ones.
Over time, metabolism changes, it takes more time to digest.
Some processes fade away, causing irreversible metamorphosis in the body. Dry and roughage
should be replaced with liquid and semi-liquid food for better absorption.
Feeding professionals believe that for an adult, the daily rate should be no more than 1 kg of dry
You can divide the portions into several receptions, you should take into account the class of
feed: economy, premium, holistic. The higher the grade of the feed developed by the
manufacturer, the less it will be needed for one individual. Physical characteristics are also
worth considering: large breed dogs eat a lot more than indoor dogs.
It is normal for the animal to feel hungry during the day. The main indicators that the food is
selected correctly are a healthy coat and body weight, at which the dog can lead an active
You should also consider the fact that many pets like to sleep after eating. Therefore, if the
owner leaves the house for a long time, it makes sense to feed the dog before leaving so that
during his absence she would spend a significant part of the time sleeping.
Puppies are not weaned until 4 weeks of age and are breastfed. From a three-week period of
life, they begin to accustom to solid food and feed them up to 5 times a day every 4 hours.
Upon reaching two months of age, the number of feedings is reduced to 3-4, after six months of
age – 2; one-year-old animals and older, depending on their physical condition, are fed once or
twice a day.
Diet by age and weight
If a small puppy is taken to the house, then each feeding should be strictly according to the
schedule, at least 4 hours later. If this rule is observed, the baby’s diet is established, which has
a beneficial effect on the functioning of the digestive system.
Gradually, the periods between feedings increase, the night intake is best done after 6 hours.
When the age of the pet reaches six months and older, it is fed every 5 days during the day. A
one-year-old dog is considered an adult and is fed 2 times a day.
To avoid problems with digestion:
● one hour before meals and one hour after the dog must rest;
● you can not arrange active games during rest, especially after eating;
● it is necessary to feed the animal in a calm environment;
● keep the bowl clean by removing all residues from it in a timely manner.
Puppy food norms
In order to correctly calculate the daily feed rate for a puppy, you need to know its weight and
calorie content of the feed itself.
The feed rate is indicated for 1 kg of weight.
If it is possible to buy elite feed for them, then the dosage is made at the rate of 60 g per 2 kg of
weight, not taking into account the calorie content of the feed.
Gradually, dry food begins to be mixed with canned food, and then they are transferred to adult
Age Calories (kcal)

Feed rates for adult dogs
The amount of feed per 1 kg of body weight per day for an adult dog depends on the breed and
It should be borne in mind that the animal may exhibit food allergies.
Elderly dogs are considered older than 7 years. Due to their age, they may have problems with
the digestive system. If the diseases are clearly manifested, it is recommended to transfer such
individuals to a special diet.
Norms for natural nutrition
With natural nutrition, take 40 grams of dry food, the same amount of wet food and fiber per 1
kg of body weight. For pregnant women, service dogs and stud dogs, the number of natural
dogs can be increased.
With an average physical activity, a dog weighing up to 40 kg requires a day in grams:
● meat – 600;
● cereals – 500;
● vegetables – 200-300.
With heavy physical exertion, a relative in the same weight category needs (in grams):
● fresh meat – 1000;
● cereals – up to 700;
● vegetables – 300.
With increased physical activity, for a dog weighing more than 40 kg, it should be used per day
● meat – 500;
● cereals – 700;
● vegetables – 400.
It is also recommended to add 50 g of meat and fish-bone meal to the diet, from fermented milk
products – kefir and fermented baked milk, in a volume of 100-200 ml, cottage cheese – from
200 to 500 g.
Breeds Calories (kcal)
Dwarf or very small (up to 5 kg, height up to 30 cm) 100-120
Small (from 5 to 10 kg, up to 40 cm) 55-95
Medium (up to 20 kg, 40-56 cm) 70-80
Large (from 20 to 30 kg, 56-65 cm) 60-70
Giant (50+ kg, from 60 cm) 55-65
Wet Feeding Rates
If the owner decided to feed the pet with wet food, then the mass of one dose is calculated in
the proportion of 70-120 grams of cooked food per 1 kg of animal weight. It all depends on age,
breed and lifestyle. Pregnant, guard dogs and males during the mating period increase the
amount of food by 10-15%.
we recommends: norms and rules for feeding dry food (by breed,
As a rule, the daily intake rates are indicated by the dry food manufacturer on the packaging.
But this information is for informational purposes only, since the manufacturers do not know the
individual characteristics of the pet.
Dogs of small breeds are often very active, they metabolize faster, and their medium and large
breeds move more slowly, and metabolic processes are often less active. Small stature and
body weight force the dog to be in the lower layers of the atmospheric air, therefore, in the
winter season, it can freeze more and burn the calories received faster.
Older dogs need a softer food structure, while younger dogs need bones and tough food.
Veterinarians have concluded that a 75% to 25% dry to wet ratio is best for a dog’s health in a
The higher the calorie content, the less feed the pet needs, since the body is saturated faster,
thanks to the proteins it contains in kcal:
● holistic – 350-450;
● super premium – 350-450;
● premium – 300–350;
● economy – 250-300.
Holistic food is made from the highest quality products and can be recommended for specialized
feeding as it is hypoallergenic. Super-premium granules are a complete food, premium – they
contain offal and animal proteins, economy – low quality products, you need to additionally
include vitamin supplements in the diet.
For one-month-old puppies, it is preferable to prepare soaked dry food pellets so that tooth
enamel does not wear off.
For small breeds from 2 to 5 kg, it is advised to give 50-100 g of dry food per serving for an
active lifestyle, and 30-80 for an inactive one.
For dogs whose weight starts from 10 kg, with good walking and games, 150-170 g are
required, for their less active relatives – 120-150. Further, the rate of one dose increases by 100
g for every 10 kg. That is, if the animal weighs 20 kg – 250-270, 30 kg – 350-370 g, etc.
If the food is selected correctly, then the dog looks cheerful, shows interest in games, his coat is
healthy and shiny. With the wrong diet, the dog can begin to gain extra pounds. To prevent this
from happening, you need to control whether she manages to eat a portion in 20 minutes or not.
If the food is based on dry granules, then the pet needs more water than wet feeding. Therefore,
it is important that there is always fresh water in the drinking bowl.
