    DefaultHow much did you pay for your dog?

    Sensitive subject but I have seen a bunch of threads saying that people pay too much for red fox, etc etc. My last dog was a freebee, this one I happily shelled out $1200. I personally know of people spending $2700+ for a pup from FC AFC parents.
    Is price an issue when buying a dog?

    I paid a 50.00 adoption fee at a shelter for Mambo. If I get another it will also be one for a shelter or rescue.

    We paid $400 for Tucker and $1000 for Frankie. Frankie is a rare creampuff lab. :P :P

    Hmm, it probably has a lot to do with breeder, pedigree, area of country, and time of purchase.

    Bear (championship pedigree), in 1993 in Saint Louis, was 400. From what I remember (I was ten at the time), that price was very high for our area.

    Maverick, in 1998 in Chicago was 600. Maverick was pet bred-That price, I seem to remember, being pretty on par with everything else.


    Gabby, in 2006 in Southern Illinois was 875. Gabby is field-bred-This price was pretty dead on for Saint Louis area prices right now.

    Jimo was free since we rescued him.

    Shiner would have been about $1500 but my husbands parents provided the breeder with lots of landscaping plants from their nursery so the breeder owed them one, and she was free on 'trade'. That being said I would not reccomend that breeder, not only are they overpriced but their dogs have health issues and they refuse to acknowledge it.

    we paid 250.00 for abbey and 350.00 for cinder because she had papers and so did her parents but since we had her fixed, we really didn't care what she came with as long as she had a good temperment. if something were to happen to either of them, my husband and i will definitely go with a rescued lab.

    I got a pet bred BYB dog...Rider for a measly $200. My new dog is going to be in the range of $800-$1000 for a show quality pup.

    Cisco was an even $300 in the summer of 2003. I have already identified the breeder of my next lab puppy (to be purchased this summer) and it looks like he will run around $1000.
