Dogs can bring joy and happiness to any household, becoming beloved and lifelong friends to whoever shows them even remote attention. Most dog owners will agree that the benefits of owning a dog far outweigh the costs, but that might not be entirely true. You see, taking care of a dog can cost you thousands of dollars for food, supplies, and vaccines. On top of all that, there is also the initial cost of buying a healthy pup. A purebred, healthy pup can cost you anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to thousands or even more.
Depending on the type of dog, the cost might actually rise due to specific needs that rare breeds sometimes have. Perhaps it would be best to see what the 10 most expensive dog breeds in the world are to give ourselves an idea of exactly how much purebred dog ownership can cost us these days.
