[adrotate group=”4″]

Our dogs are some of the most precious things in our lives. We love them with all of our hearts and shower them with love and affect. But how far would you be willing to pay for your pup? We do everything for our pups and spend a lot of money every single day. While some prices might be higher for breeders than animal shelters, no matter where your precious pup comes from, we love them nonetheless.

No matter where your dog is from, Americans spend an average of $1,675 per year on their dog, and purebred dogs cost five-times more than a mutt or mixed dog. While that might seem like a lot, there are way more expensive dogs out there than purebreds and these are the top-10 most expensive dog breeds to own in 2021.

20. Saint Bernard – $1,500

Most Expensive Dogs - Saint Bernard

Kicking off our list is the St. Bernard, a breed of working dog from the western Alps in Italy and Switzerland.

They were originally bred for rescue purposes by the hospice of the Great St Bernard Pass on the Italian-Swiss border.

The 1992 movie, Beethoven, catapulted the breed’s popularity, and might have something to do with its hefty price tag!
