When I think of all the good a million pounds could do in the world, a story like this makes me want to cry. If this dog is any better than any of the ones I've owned, which have ranged from free to $105, I'd like to know how.

LOL I would rather have a Tibetan Mastiff that could do what it was bred to do then look pretty, Its not a Tibetan Mastiff you can only call a dog a breed if it does what its been bred to do which this one does not.

Looks just like my Beeze (color-wise!) but he was only $125!

You wouldn;t belive what some in the middle east pay to buy a dog for their kids because its what they want and what they pay to transport it home. You can have a animal buiying spree in the US and they pay $250,000 to charter a private flight to transport a couple horses and some dogs back home. Millions are spent every year by the rich to get what they want as pets.
