Most Expensive Dog Breeds

There are luxury homes, luxury cars -- why not luxury dogs, too? When a mixed breed just won't do, there are plenty of ultra-pedigrees who will offer you unconditional love. Just be prepared to fork over some serious dough for them. Here are the most expensive dog breeds out there.

German Shepherd
Cost: $3,000 - $24,000

Compared to some of the other dogs on this list, German Shepherds are sort of the new kids on the block. But its intelligence, agility and obedience have earned it top jobs with the military and police, and it’s the go-to service dog for the hearing- and sight-impaired. These gentle giants are also stars of the silver screen, most notably Rin Tin Tin.
