Puppies are a LOT more time. I suggest an older dog.
Both breeds have lots of prey drive, and cats are fair game. TRAINING can help, but don't leave them alone together.
Well, there are the vet costs, shots, physical exams. Then when you need to bring the dog in for sickness or injury... It gets expensive fast.
Food, if you feed kibble, one 50lb bag every few weeks runs about $40+ a bag.
Then you will of course need a crate, leashes, collars, toys, bedding, grooming supplies (brushes/combs, shampoo's)extras (treats, other collars, ect.)
If you have a behavioral problem and want a trainer, it runs in the hundreds.
And damages, all dogs mess things up, especially puppies, they destroy when they get bored.
Thousannds of dollars a year, and if your dog gets into an accident requiring surgery/staying at the vets, add a few K more.
But it varies. Dogs are expensive.
Not to mention the hours of time, and the patience needed.
I'm sure you will get better answers than mine.
