    Default Be honest! How much did you pay for your dog?

    We would get them and Neos and a few other of these guardian breeds into rescue because they were not handled right as pups and were a danger to the public. They are freakin adorable tho.
    That's sad - my brothers fiancée sister has one ( which is how I first found out about them!) he is just wonderful, gentle, great with kids and very friendly - I met with the breeder last year and his dogs were all wonderful - maybe the people that gave them up were not used to big dogs? I've had rotties and have a brilliant trainer so am very prepared! I still have to convince DH though he still thinks its a lot of money but he also fell in love with them , I've looked at Neos but not keen on the drool !

    We paid $400 for our little boy (purebred cavalier) from the cavalier rescue org and $400 for our girl (purebred cavalier)on gumtree from a family who couldn't look after her. To be honest, I would have paid more and was shocked when the lady at the rescue place only said $400.

    There is a facebook page for dogs that need homework you can get them as a puppy or a senior they can cost upto $350 but that's including desexing, microchipping and all their injection or they get put down. Italian called sa dog rescue. I wouldn't pay anything more than $500 for a dog.

    To all the ladies asking. (i don't know how to multi quote on my phone).

    Apparently he had cherry eye when he was born and was the smallest of the litter, and no-one wanted him. :-( I don't know why he certainly isn't small anymore and he is just so cute and so lazy (unless my washing is on the line, then i have to watch him like a hawk)

    He is fantastic with my kids especially my two year old, that kid can do anything to him and he just lays there. In fact if i ever need to wash the dogs bed i get my 2 year old to get it because he is the only person allowed to touch it!!

    Plus no medical issues at all other than major separation anxiety which I've been told is common with Westies.
    I think I can vaguely picture ur dog from the products packaging...

    We paid $500 for my staffy....I will pay a lot more next time to ensure the Staffy we get has had genetic testing + hip testing.

    I loved my boy, but had he lived longer then 4 years, he would have started to suffer from early onset arthritis due to his hip displasia He also would have seizures every 6 or so months. Thankfully neither seemed to cause him pain.

    Our Purebread husky was free. He cost his original owner $1500. They passed him on to our friend at 5 months as they didn't have the time to train him. Our friend had to rehome him at 10 months due to a relationship breakdown. He has been with us over 2.5 years now
