2021 Pricing of Puppies Query


Recommended Posts

We have recently had to have our 15 year old rescue put down due to cancer on the liver.  Devastation is an understatement.  We are trying to move forward and have decided as a family (of 4 adults) that a puppy will help us move forward and fill a void in our hearts.  Having done a lot of research about pedigree vs cross breed dogs, the issues around puppy farms and backyard breeders, we are still at a loss as to what we should be expecting to pay for a pup.  Our rescue 15 years ago cost $180 :) !! (We know that we will be paying substantially a LOT more than that for a pup).  We are looking at two breeds specifically, Cairn Terrier or a West Highland Terrier.  This dog will definately not be a show dog nor do we intend to breed with it, but just to become our fifth wheel in the household.  Can anybody give me some indicative prices of what we could expect to pay for these breeds?  thanks in advance.

You need to contact Breeders to find prices ,it’s the easiest and correct info which will also allow you to know the potential waiting time

Whilst you are speaking with Breeders - they may have an older Dog available for Adoption, if no Puppies available.

Deepest sympathies for the loss of your 15 year old.  Just wondering if you have considered another rescue although your preferred breeds rarely turn up in rescue, they do from time to time and crosses there of.  A hard working rescue group in Victoria is Starting Over Dog Rescue.  Good luck in finding your “fifth wheel”.

@Boroniais definitely the one to get advice from re finding a reputable rescue that may have the breeds that you are looking at... and Westies in particular... maybe she will be along soon...

righto T, I'll do that :laugh:

@vikik1968,  the FB link to All Westie Rescue in Victoria is here

find older Westies for sale by breeder here  ...only one at the moment for sale from a lovely woman who was the previous owner of one of my older girls, Maria's dogs are so looked after!

and check that the breeder is legitimate here as there have been quite a few scams involving Westies lately.

Go to shows and speak to breeders, you will find shows advertised here  sometimes beside each show listed there is a 1490078214_Screenshotfrom2021-07-0307-46-20.png.5bf673e4c76a2fa514c6c63dce0ebea0.pngsymbol, click on that and there will be a list of dogs entered for that show

 

Good luck with your search :)
