World's Most Expensive Dog - $1.5 million dollar pup

Saturday, March 19, 2011

11-month old Hong Dong, a Red Tibetan Mastiff, recently sold for a record $1,500,000.00. The name means "Big Splash", and this 180lb puppy has certainly made one. These dogs have become one of the latest "it" items in China, and the rich and fabulous have gone crazy for these furry status symbols.

Besides their unique appearance (red is considered a lucky color in China) and their intelligence, Red Tibetan Mastiffs are also prized for their history. They are viewed as one of the world's oldest purebreds and have been used as watchdogs in Asia for thousands of years.
