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.
Oh wow, that's so nice of you to do that for them!
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.
