The breed was developed back in the 13th century. So, indeed it is an ancient one and the dogs are highly cultivated. They are not the savages, as the Tibetan mastiffs are. It is believed they are the offspring of the ancient war hounds. You would not believe the changes cultivated in this type of dogs after the banning of bull bating.

I love pets! They give people good emotions. Dogs are funny, very often kind and loyal animals. But some of them are very expensive, it's true. I cannot say, which dog from this article I like more, who is more beautiful for me, because I prefer dogs from the street. It's remarkable that breeds of dogs in the world look so different. I think I'll never pay lot of money, if one day I want to buy a dog. All dogs for me are amazing. But if some people want to buy an expensive dog - why not? It's their own choice.

Owning a dog is good, but to make her famous throughout the world not everyone can do that will require major financial and moral investment. The most expensive dogs are in good demand from journalists and different TV channels. Often it is a purebred dog and are not small money. Care of them special and thorough. If many people think that if a dog is small it is almost nothing to do with it is not need, they are mistaken, because it is a family pet and it requires a proper attitude.

To have a faithful friend the dog was probably very good, it is a pity that some do not realize this and throw them into the street.

Oh!!! They are really pretty! I know there are a lot of kind-hearted people who kriticise me, but i don't like tle look of a pretty woman with a simole street dog beside her. It looks disgusting. Some people say they are the clewerest, but I don't believe it. I've never seen a usual dog in a police looking for a robber or in a firebrigade looking for people under rocks. I'll never change my German Shepherd to any breed. I don't like small dogs,they are noisy, if you haven't got enough place for a big dog, it's better to take a cat .

Those dogs are truly beautiful. But one should never have thought that they cost that much. I think that you should love your dog even if he does not have a fancy breed. The most important thing about the dogs is that they love you, they do not care if you are rich or poor, ugly or beautiful, smart or stupid.If you treat them nicely then they will give you all their love. I just love dogs so much. Even if my dog is not that expensive i still love him. Probably i would never give him up for all the money in the world.

Purebreds animals - is certainly a good indicator of riches at the owner))) Of course, most people think that if such a pedigreed dog, then the match will be a little, or not at all hurt, her strong immune system, and care of smaller animals are not so much necessary. But! It is not correct information. In most cases, a pureblood animals that require special grooming, good nutrition, active lifestyle. But the immune system may be weak due to genetic mutations that are subject to purebred animals. Sometimes it is better to take a very simple breed, which will be 100 times healthier and more friendly)))
