    DefaultHow much is too much?

    I was just wondering, what your opinions would should be the cost of a pure bred lab from a reputable breeder? Does it change with the color type and everything?

    Well hmmm....a rough estimate, be willing to pay up to $1500, and I would say not less then $700, depending on where you live. Color should never influence cost. Things that might are big specialty wins, finished champion parents, innoculations, wormings, microchipping or tatooing, etc etc. There are a lot of things that go into why a particular price is asked.

    Be sure your breeder does all health screenings etc. After that, know your limits. I have a family that wants one of my girl's puppies, and set up a payment plan, so that the pup is paid for before he goes home, and they don't have as big a dent in their bank account.

    As a single working person, I know that the cost of a well bred puppy sometimes seems out of range. But most breeders are more then happy to help out the right person for their puppy.

    Color won't change the price with a reputable breeder...neither will sex. The cost will depend on area and the quality of dog. Most good reputable breeders in Michigan charge between $800 and $1500 for a good dog from show lines....all health clearances, microchipping, etc.
