The higher prices are for show prospect and the $500.00 are for family companions, but not that a show prospect cannot be a family companion too because they certainly can and will be.

What cost $5000.00? Why was she so expensive? That sounds a bit high for a Golden.

Our next dog will be more carefully thought out, and we are more prepared to pay the price up front (not that Teddi was inexpensive) rather than risk the expenditure we had after we brought her home.

The family who had him frist paid $600. I wish we had gotten to him first. But he was definately worth the surgery!!!!!!!

We brought Sadie home as a rescue needing surgery so she was free initially but that breeder sells his dogs for $800.00.

We paid 1500 pesos or about $120 for two to the adoption people. The female was extremely ill and untrainable, so they did take her back. I sent some extra money to help her, but since I haven't ever heard back, I think she probably had to be euthanized.

The male, is an absolute doll. He has some hip problems but has steadily improved over the past two months. He gets glucosamine chondroitin, vit. B and mavicam. He's so sweet and loving we can't even imagine living without him now. He brings us gifts and talks, just a sweetheart and gorgeous looking too.

Tayla was free from a co-worker of my husband's who got her as a puppy in TN and then decided she was just too over the top for a single guy who worked all day and wanted to party at night. She is now 14 months and we have had her for 10 of those months. She is finally turning the corner into a lovely dog.
