8. English Bulldog
English Bulldogs originally were used to drive cattle to market and to compete in a bloody sport called bullbaiting. Today, they’re gentle companions who love kids. A brief walk and a nap on the sofa is just this dog breed‘s speed.
Overall, Bulldogs can have a lot of health problems. They are wonderful dogs, but be sure you’re willing to monitor their health closely and can afford any medical treatment they may need. Bulldogs are inactive indoors and don’t require a great deal of exercise. $9000 and you’ll gat your own walking blob.
Originally bred to hunt, haul sledges, and herd reindeer, the Samoyed dog breed proved a valuable companion for northwestern Siberia’s Samoyede people. Among the breed’s duties: pack hiking, tracking, and warming their owners by sleeping on top of them at night. Now It can cost up to $11000 per pup.
The active Samoyed is not suited to apartment or condo life. A home with a large, securely fenced yard is the best choice. Because the Samoyed is a working dog, he needs room to romp and play.
