The nation’s most expensive dog breeds have been revealed but where does your pooch come?

As a country, we can’t get enough of our pets and would do just about anything for them – no matter what size or shape they come in.

But between vet costs, food, insurance and general upkeep, our favorite furry friends can cost an absolute fortune.

In fact, according to the marketing service Savoo’s research, your waggy-tailed pal could cost you as much as £25,000 over their lifetime.
