Bear was $350 from a rescue at 9 weeks. Worth every penny.

Elvis was free! I got him from a very nice woman who was going to give him to a shelter because she couldn't find the time anymore to care for him. So I got a beautiful 5 year old AKC registered golden for $0!

Buddy was a pet store dog (I know...) and he was $1200. Worth every penny even if he is a jerk sometimes :P

Hiro was free, a friend was going to just let him loose on the streets and I said I'd take him instead.

I paid $500 for Ellie. Yes, she was a rescue, but I'd rather have paid for her than for her to stay one more day in the life she was living. Never looked back.

We got our first golden "Buddy" (June 2000-January 2012) from a BYB for $300. He was a wonderful dog, with a great sense of humor, and we miss him every day.

We got Finlay from a wonderful breeder, and paid $1300. He is such a sweetheart, and so much fun. I could not imagine our home without him

Just listing the GRs we actually paid for:

Belle in early 80s was $25.00 from what people call here BYB. Smart and wonderful in the field. Put many other dogs to shame in the field.

Trooper in early 90s was over $500 from reputable breeder, both parents were titled, had all the clearances. He was a full bag of health issues from hips to allergies to seizures. Ended up spending tens of thousands. Don't regret it, glad we could do it. What I do regret is that with him my DH has given up on training.

Rose - in 2012 - $650 asking price, I paid $750 because I believed the breeder was worth more than what was charged.
