All week, the biggest International showbiz buzz has been on pop star Lady Gaga and her stolen bulldogs' heartbreak tragedy story. She even offered to give Sh50,000 million for Koji and Gustav's safe return, which she refers to as part of her family.
Well, the puppies don't come cheap. French bulldogs' can go for Sh10 million and above. This huge pricing is because of the special breeding process, as they can only procreate via artificial insemination. They also give birth through cesarean section.

Known to splash her big money on priced pets, back in 2013, she spent around Sh5 million indirectly buying Koi Fish in a special home aquarium - from Japan. She is not the only celebrity who has splashed serious money on pets. Here are some of the most expensive celebrity pets.
