I personally cannot see myself ever paying more than $2,000 for a puppy, no matter what breed it is. $2,000 is my max price.
I would much rather go for the small hobby breeder who has 1 or 2 litters a year. I feel like they have more time to spend with their puppies and get to know each individual puppy so that they can match it to the proper home, they have more time to communicate with their past and future puppy buyers, they are more likely to not be stressed out or overwhelmed with puppies and dogs.
