Samoyed – $4,000
The Samoyed breed of canine is striking for its fluffy body and striking white coat. This breed is originally from Siberia and indigenous initially to the nomadic Samoyedic tribe. The Samoyedic tribe of people were known for their herding of reindeers and it is no surprise that the Samoyed was involved. Samoyed help both with breeding and sled pulling despite their smaller frame, weighing in at up to 66 pounds. Samoyed’s are ultra friendly but they are very active. If you don’t stick to good dog foods, an active schedule, and a busy home life then you will get a dog that goes into the yard to dig or starts to make a mess in the house. We advise these dogs for active people and ones who plan on being around them enough. Oh yeah, and a pure bred will cost you anywhere from $4,000 to $6,000 depending on the breeder.
Pharaoh Hound – $6,500
Despite the name, the Pharaoh Hound has nothing to do with Egypt. Instead, the name was likely glommed on due to the pointed features of the dog’s face as well as its high ears — both traits seen in many Egyptian drawings. The Pharaoh Hound is actually from Malta and it represents a supremely athletic breed of dog. This breed has short red coats and noses that match their skin tone. An interesting aspect of these athletic creatures is that both their noses and ears can turn a slightly different shade, blushing, whenever they feel supremely excited. The Pharaoh Hound looks similar in shape to a Greyhound but they are much harder to train and keep around as a family pet. If you do decide to buy a Pharaoh Hound you need to be ready to really focus on dog obedience training.
