Anyone who owns a dog knows that it can be one of the most rewarding things you can do in your life. The unconditional love you receive from your new best friend can get you through the tough times and make every day a little more fun.

Although we always say it’s better to adopt a dog rather than to shop for one, we realize that different people have different needs and so different dog breeds can be more or less suitable.

So if you decided to buy one, or if you are just interested in how much can a dog cost you better hold on to your hats as we give you our list of the most expensive dog breeds in the world.

This little dog is going to cost you big bucks. These little purse dogs have a life expectancy of 13 or 16 years, so they’ll definitely be with you long enough for you to get your money’s worth.

They’re so expensive because of the health conditions that they’re prone to, including eye injuries and knee injuries. While they don’t shed, a Yorkie will cost you a good $30 every time you go to the groomers.

And if you have a vet issues that need to be taken care of, a $9,000 bill is pretty common.
