I thought he might on a wind-up until I read this...

World's most expensive dog? Pup sold for $2 million

A golden-haired Tibetan mastiff puppy has reportedly been sold for a whopping $2 million in China, potentially making it the world's most expensive dog.

The pup was sold at a premium pet fair in the eastern province of Zhejiang on Tuesday, fetching 12 million yuan ($1.95 million), according to AFP, which cites a report in Chinese newspaper Qianjiang Evening News.

Dunno Markey would be handy to know the breed..

I used to shoot with a friend and his wife had 3 German Shorthaired Pointers, so intelligent, she won a room full of trophy and some money which I do not know how much.
She used to say the Pointers were worth £thousands.

When we were 'walking up' I always tried to be behind them, fantastic to see working.

The average price for German Shorthaired Pointers pups in the UK is around £765 (KC Registered) - unlikely to be worth thousands starbold. :dunno:

Depends on the breeder/line. Some pay a bloody fortune.
I paid the upper end of average for my Newf, but the higher end could stretch to £2-2.5k

For German Shorthaired Pointers pups? Or is there a separate price for trained dogs (as in sheepdogs)?

I only ever take rescue dogs so pricing is not my expertise.

With these expensive breeds you can see why there’s a major problem with puppy farming ,

I agree Markey - it's something we work at (through charity) to seek more stringent regulation at the very least. The good news is that the govt is to announce a crackdown soon apparently.

Personally I ask all dog lovers to take unwanted dogs instead of buying from breeders.

I usually ask people to consider helping these folk if possible - or at least adopt / foster a dog instead of buying one.
