Hugo Lloris, who captained France in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, recently shelled out a reported £15,000 for an elite personal protection dog. Reports in The Sun revealed that the 33-year old Premier League veteran bought the mutt from Elite Protection Dogs in order to protect his family and home when he’s away with the team. The London-based firm claims to only use German and Belgian Shepherds that “come from military and police backgrounds”.

The Elite Protection Dogs website states, “The military and police all around the world tend to choose these breeds as their first choice, as do we. These dogs have the highest IQ in the protection dog category. A personal protection dog is not only a family-friendly pet but also a form of protection. They crave a family bond, affection and love and are very child friendly. Prices start from £15,000.”
