The 10 Most Expensive Dog Breeds Can Set You Back as Much as $4000

Why pay rent when you could buy a dog (despite there being 4 million in shelters)?

Life is a constant stream of decision-making: Should you spring for dessert? Should you have that sixth vodka soda? Do you need that leather jacket, which looks pretty similar to two others you already own? Should you pay your rent, or should you buy a new dog?

In New York City, finding a decent one-bedroom in a desirable neighborhood will set you back $1,500 at the very least. (For an abode in the most enviable areas, you can expect to pay upwards of $4,000 for a dingy studio. Greatest city on earth!) As fortune would have it, that price range also applies to the most expensive dog breeds in the world.

The Gazette Review recently published a list of the 10 priciest purebreds money can buy, so if you’re looking to add a pet to your family for less than $1,000, stop reading. From the noble Shiba Inu (imagine owning a fox) to the mystifyingly massive Tibetan Mastiff (imagine owning an adult lion but with longer hair), you have a wide range of options that vary in all but one respect: the price tag. So the choice is yours: shell out $2,500 for a Portuguese Water Dog just like the ones the Obamas have and move into your car, or keep your home and hit up your local shelter

(This is your gentle reminder that even if you are looking for a specific breed, you can search [BREED] + shelter and rescue the dog of your dreams. #AdoptDontShop)
