Fun Dog Facts

Stephen Dent would like to share some fun facts with you about Dog Breeds. For instance, did you know that a Red Tibetan Mastiff, named Big Splash, is thought to be the world’s most expensive dog ever bought for a price of $1.5 million USD? Or that the smallest dog known in the world is one named Boo Boo, who is a long-haired female Chihuahua and stands 4 inches tall and weighs a mere 2 pounds. The heaviest dog known today is a St. Bernard named Benedictine who is 357 lbs.
