8. French Bulldog
The French Bulldogs are very shrewd, energetic and curious dogs by nature. Although they are great companions, they can also be excellent guards and will let their family know of any danger. The price is a little high: $2000 and, due to potential serious health problems, the average cost of care of this type is about $4300. The reason this price is so high is in the fact that its gestation is very difficult and requires artificial insemination and C-section. Its life range is 10 to 14 years.
Azawakh is one of the few most unusual African breeds available in the United States and Canada, priced at $2000 or $2500. Nomadic African tribes originally raised and trained the Azawakh to hunt and be guardian. He can run faster than an English greyhound, reaching 40 mph. Identifiable by its slender body and striking almond-colored eyes, this dog can run and hunt relentlessly under the strong African sun. Azawakh is one of the few that do not have “dog smell” as it has developed a self-cleaning mechanism, so grooming and grooming won’t cost owners much. Possible health problems include risk of skin disease and hypothyroidism, which means an average cost of $5000 in medical expenses. They live between 12 and 15 years old.
