Dog lovers are a special breed of people, usually distinct from your average pet owner. These people take their canine companions way more seriously than your average pet owner and will go to great lengths to obtain a unique breed of dog that they love. They’re not afraid to invest a lot of money into getting the breed they want. Different breeds require different levels of care. Now a piece of unique news is coming from Bengaluru, a Bengaluru-based kennel owner spend a phenomenal Rs. 20 crores to acquire a rare breed of dog, the Caucasian Shepherd. This news created a buzz in the pet-loving community in India.
Satish, the breeder from Bengaluru, is the guy for whom the price tag was worth it since finding Caucasian Shepherds that are mostly available in Turkey, Armenia, and Azerbaijan is very rare in India. Such an exclusive breed normally also comes with a hefty price tag. The dog was bought from a breeder in Hyderabad. The Caucasian Shepherd Dog is a large, powerful, and impressive breed of dog that is known for its courage, and loyalty.
In India, such a majestic breed is not available at pet stores and the market is relatively niche when compared to other popular dog breeds such as the Labrador, German Shephard, and Poodle. Though there is no denying that Rs. 20 crore is an exorbitant price to pay for one dog, this news of Satish’s successful acquisition and his commitment to the breed is a positive one. It shows that not just commercial breeds, but rare breeds such as the Caucasian Shepherd can find takers in the Indian market.
