I don't know what vet costs are in your area, but for general figures, count on 100$ for the initial vet check and vaccinations and worming, if not more.
Here where I live, a vet visit (just having the vet look at my dog) is 56$. Then there are the extras on top of that, like the costs of the vaccines, the worming meds, or any other procedures that need to be done. If your pup eats something and gets sick due to a possible blockage - eating something big that gets stuck in the intestines and can't pass through - the x-rays to see where the blockage is can be around 100 to 200 dollars, and the surgery would be around 1000$.
So you see, the initial cost of a dog is nothing. The real cost in on-going care and the possible emergency situation. If your family does not have the money to cover these costs, what will you do? Sit there and watch your puppy die?
