In George Orwell classic The animal farm,” (a very good book, read it) there is a quote, which stands out, “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” The saying aptly captures the pricing of dogs, all dogs are canines, but some cost a fortune. The bottom line is that, if you do not have a bulging bank account, you will never have a chance of owning some dog breeds. Of course any dog can be a loyal pet, no need to clean your account for one!
