How much for the doggy in the window?
Finally, a border collie from Northumberland has become the world’s most expensive sheepdog after being sold to an American ranch owner for £18,900.
Two-and-a-half year-old Megan was sold by shepherdess Emma Gray – who has represented England at the World Sheepdog Trials – at an auction in North Yorkshire on Friday.
“I had to ring the auction and just make sure it wasn’t a hoax and that I wasn’t dreaming,” she said.
The average price for a working dog is about £2,000.
Megan will go from herding sheep in the north-east of England to rounding up Wagyu cattle in Oklahoma.
