    Depending on the lines, I've seen well bred GSDs for 800 to 1800.

    I've never priced Dutchies, but assuming they're the same as Mals, I'm guessing there in the same price range, which is definitely what Hilly and Adrienne posted.

    I've not really seriously priced Labradors, because I haven't found a breeder producing what I want except one and I don't remember who they were :p Leah posted them though. And I don't remember what they were charging.

    Ozzys are free :p

    I don't really know because I didn't shop around. Juno was $1000. I do remember looking at classified ads just to see what was out there and I don't think I ever saw anything over $1k, but pretty sure none of those were reputable breeders soooo I don't think that counts.

    Dalmatians range in price from $800 to $2,500.00. Depends on pet, show, co-ownership, on the location (the coastal states seem to be priced slightly higher) and the kennel name attached.

    I've seen anywhere between 1,000-2500 for an Ibizan. The puppy I was planning to get was going to be priced at the further end of the spectrum and I would easily pay $2000-2500 for an Ibizan pup from certain breeders.

    Mexidogs are priceless lol.

    At some point I really want a Saluki and a Xoloitzcuintli... Not sure their price ranges.

    $400-$1,000 for a pup from working lines is average IMO. $1,000-$2,000 for show lines is about average. As for sport lines, I've seen anywhere from $500-$3,500. Yes, that $3,500 I quoted in the other thread was from a real breeder, and it's a sport breeder.

    That breeder wouldn't happen to be in California would they? There's a sport breeder in CA that I remember hearing had really high prices.

    :lol-sign: I don't know, but whenever I think of Xolos, I think of this one woman in my area who has them. I know her through agility, but she shows conformation too. She amuses me, because she never ever lets a dog go. She has a couple really homely dogs that are foster failures (mixed breeds that probably have some hairless breed in them) Then she had this dog she "borrowed" to make points for her Xolo in the breed ring, and wound up deciding to keep. She's like the Hotel California for dogs.

    Anyway, the Xolos don't seem to hard to come by, just don't try getting one away from her!

    About this.

    Cali was only $700 though, despite her mom being a Canadian show champion and her dad was an import from Slovakia.. she was also the breeder's favourite. But, the breeder was a bit older and was taking a break from breeding for awhile. She had produced nice dogs though, I had found a few on breeder websites like Braylor's and a few from the Maritimes.

    I would agree with that. When I was looking at Berger Picards I was expecting to pay a pretty penny, but when I finally went with an English Shepherd the price became much, much lower. That $500-800 sounds about right.

    If we are talking health tested titled breeders, usually between $500-$2500 depending on the purpose of the dog and whether it's for breeding or not for breeding.

    One could get a lovely coy from a disreputable shelter for the grand total of $75. Coy from a breeder? $350, and yes, I've seen it. I weep for those poor puppies.

    Xoloitzcuintli- Depends on size and with or without coat and if your importing but you can find NICE Standards from 400-2000.

    I'm surprised to see such high quotes for working bred BCs. Around here, I could easily get a working bred BC puppy for $250-400. Or do you mean successful trial lines?

    I wonder if many people are actually paying those higher prices for the puppies though? A friend of mine was looking at a getting a working line Mal puppy that the breeder was charging, I think $1500+. She ended up deciding to go with someone more in line with her expectations for the dog, as this guy was a typical Mal sport breeder who kept their dogs kenneled and bragged about how insane the dog were. Found out that months later the guy still had puppies and wasn't even able to give them away. It seems to me there is a bit of an over-saturated market as far as "decently bred working line" Mal puppies go.

    It seems the less common breeds are split - some are very expensive and others are relatively cheap. When I talked to a Pumi breeder, she said $500 for a puppy. Then said, half the time she can't even sell the whole litter and ends up having to keep multiples because there is just not a big market for the breed in the US.

    Happy cost my sister $500 from a (suspected) mill but that was many years ago. I think that's still the amount BYBs and such charge though. So probably $500-1500 maybe? There are probably people out there charging more but that would be what I consider reasonable and typical for a sheltie.

    Cardis are pretty reasonable, I got a discount on mine for various reasons but most go for $800-1000.

    My sister and I have a running joke that Mackenzy cost us some pocket lint and an old paper clip. LOL

    Field cockers usually run $800-1000 as well, though they can be had for cheaper from parents that hunt but don't trial, and breeders who don't health test, etc. Ollie was $1000 from Field Champion (and highly ranked), thoroughly health tested parents. His breeder occaisionally has litters from dogs that are still working on their FC's that are slightly cheaper, $800-900.

    Blaze is a mix of farm dog/successful trial line. It just really depends on who you buy from. To me $600-$800 it's that much, compared to 99% of the rest of breeds.

    I mean health tested trial dogs, I'm guessing you could probably get a working dog from a farm, sans health testing, for around $200-$400. I have seen ISDS puppies anywhere from $300-$1,000 (USD, obviously they're typically sold in pounds or euros).

    As for that sport breeder who charges so much, I believe she's in northern CA or OR.

    Chows are pretty similar to other breeds for limited registration/pet quality: around $1200-1500. Except Goose, she was discounted ;) I've only had pet quality Chows, so not sure about show pup prices, etc. Our next Chow, in many moons, will probably be a show pup, so we'll see then :)

    I will note that like 17 years ago I got my first Chow (from ok lines in general, but purchased from a BYB) was $250, lol. He was the best dog ever though, temperament wise :) Hip surgeries taught me my lesson about going to breeders who health test, but he was still pretty excellent :)

    This price range is stable across the US for Basenji Club of America members, almost all of which do extensive health testing. I am actually floored by how much some breeds cost. It's been 20 years since I purchased a dog and I'm feeling "sticker shock". :yikes:
