The price of a puppy can vary greatly. If they're from a backyard breeder, you could spend as little as $200, maybe less. From a reputable breeder, however, you can pay as much as $3,000. IMO, what you pay in the beginning saves you in vet bills later. Please don't support BYBs!
I know it's hard to spend about $1,500 (I believe that's the norm) on a puppy, but with parents that have been health and temperament testing, you really do get what you pay for.
