    I have paid anywhere from 0-2500 for dogs. You can get a nice free staffy from gumtree and you can get nice purebred dogs from shelters for a ton less than you are being quoted. There is no real reason to go to a breeder unless you want to show and breed dogs, you can get just the same quality for a lot less or even free. I am amazed at the prices over here compared to the US Staffys in the US are a couple thousand dollars even un registered and you wont ever find one free. Here they seem a dime a dozen.

    If you dont want to fork out that money for a dog just watch gumtree and take your time you are bound to find exactly what you are looking for.

    I've paid between $700 and $1300 for registered show dogs in the past.

    Our dog we have now is a Bull Arab we paid $150 for her with all work done as a pup. We bought her as I knew DP missed his old girl a lot. She was advertised at $500 but as she was last left they sold her for the cost of the work. She's a great dog.

    I would not hesitate to easily pay over $1000 for a registered, pedigree dog with all medical Certs and medical Certs if parents and from a reputable breeder.

    Our dog was only 4 weeks when we got her I don't even know what she was doing in the pet shop. It was a very spontaneous thing we did. We were in there looking for fish. But DP kept going back to her. She wasn't even in a proper enclosure thing. I ended up buying her for him for 650 and we had to feed her with a syringe for a week.
    My mum has a lab x Newfoundland and he was a abandoned puppy with his brothers and sisters and cost mum 150 without the needles.

    $950 for my first beagle x cav & $700 for my beagle x cavalier who looks more like a miniature Rottweiler but I love her to death!

    I am about to pay $2500 for my next dog once we move into a bigger place. We are getting a new foundland. They even have to interview us to see if we are suitable?!

    $150 from a back yard *breeder* who bred their female border collie with their dads black lab. It was definitely not a puppy mill He is a great dog, I think both parents were very good quality but I will never take a chance on a back yard breeder again, I just got lucky this time.

    I had another dog that was free. He was very sweet but as the saying goes ....you get what you pay for. I think they forgot to breed a brain into him.

    My boxers were around $1200 each from a registered breeder. Mum's pugs were $1500 each I believe, again from a registered breeder. Also have one from the rspca for a few hundred. I don't believe in supporting backyard breeders. If you want a purebred but not as expensive you could perhaps try the rescue group for the particular breed dogzonline has details of rescue groups.

    We paid $600 for our bulldog. He came with papers and photos of parents, and their pedigree history.

    We paid $900 for our pedigree Rotti with full papers 10 years ago. Today we will have to say good-bye to him

    I will never buy a dog from a backyard breeder or a pet shop.
