10: Czechoslovakian Wolfdog
Most people know that modern day dogs are closely related to the wild wolf, but it looks like the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog is as close as they can get. The relatively new breed looks almost exactly like a wolf, and was made by combining German Shepherds and Carpathian Wolves. Priced at close to $1000 USD per pup, the wolfdog is an amazing combination of powerful and trainable. The wolf dogs were actually used in Czech Special Forces, and have also been used in hunting and rescue operations. Obedient and brave, they are known to defend their masters but require special leadership from their owners, due to their inbred pack mentality. They are mostly used as guard dogs, and are very sturdy and large animals, able to survive many conditions. Despite their somewhat intimidating appearances, many wolfdogs are good with children, despite their more reserved attitude around strangers, but it is important they are familiar with humans from a young age. Regardless, the general rarity and the usefulness of the breed are what make for a hefty price tag, but it’s still far from the most expensive.
Known as the Persian Greyhound, the Saluki is an ancient dog breed from old Egypt, Mesopotamia and the surrounding area. Even in the times of the pharaohs, tribes used to use the vision and hunting skills of Salukis to kill prey in the desert. They have long legs and a big chest, and they usually hunt prey by running it down. Even though the greyhound is one of the fastest dog breeds, Salukis are actually faster over longer distance. They are able to clock in close to 42 miles per hour, and are known for their stamina. Not normally playful, they are sensitive dogs and are not easily trainable. (Kind of like cats!) However in ancient times, they were able to coordinate with hawks and camels to bring down prey for their masters. They should normally remain leashed in public spaces and are not known to be a good breed to be left alone. These graceful breeds are worth close to $2,500 for their amazing and ancient pedigree.
8: Peruvian Inca Orchid
With origins from before even the ancient Incas, comes the Peruvian Inca Orchid, one of the least dog-looking dogs out there. The most noticeable part of the dog is it’s almost completely hairless, with chocolate or elephant grey colouring. Fast and loyal, the Orchid is hardy and can survive in almost any climate that we can! Very smart, they are easy to train and will understand boundaries and commands. They are considered somewhat hypoallergenic due to their lack of hair and they can almost also be considered tick and flea resistant because of it. One of the few dog-breeds colonizers found living in the Inca-empire, they are very used to humans and make great pets. They nearly went extinct after Spanish forces invaded modern day Peru, but local superstitions that the dogs were magical helped them survive. Not cheap, the Peruvian Inca Orchid can fetch close to $3000 per dog.
Another ancient and greyhound-looking, long legged beauty is the African Azawakh. It was mostly used as a hunting dog for different tribes in modern day Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso. Almost cat-like in the way it moves, the Azawakh is known for its speed and graceful presence. They are known to be extremely close and affectionate with their owners, while more guarded around strangers, making them a great protector dog. Being from warm climates, they are very well adapted to the heat and have been known to run in over 100-degree weather! (Fahrenheit that is). They are one of the few dog breeds which are able to hunt gazelle and other speedy prey by running at over 40 miles per hour! They are loyal and independent, and while unpopular in North America, they are beginning to get a following of breeders. These runners are also pretty expensive, often costing over $3000 each, still most owners find it more than worth it.
