Here are the 10 most expensive adorable dog breeds after the pandemic sent prices skyrocketing

Many of us welcomed new puppies into our families during lockdown in 2020, as the Kennel Club saw the number of dog owners jump almost 8% to around 250,000.

And some breeds will cost you almost £3,000 on average.
