The dog on the left was sold at the record price.

The unnamed new owner, not believed to be the man pictured, is said to have acquired the one-year-old mastiff at a “luxury pet” fair in Zhejiang, AFP quotes the Qianjiang Evening News as reporting.

"They have lion's blood and are top-of-the-range mastiff studs," the dog's breeder Zhang Gengyun is quoted as telling the paper.

A red mastiff named “Big Splash” (not pictured) was previously thought to be the most expensive dog after it was sold for a reported 10million yuan ($1.5m, £900,000) in 2011.
