Post by: m1ctk on 02:51 06-Nov-2018
I am intrigued that an ex friend of mine who I thought was always not that well off has bought a Yorkshire Terrier...what is the average price to buy one I wonder ?

A trip to the rinok should answer that question for you.

I am actually living in the UK so no idea what you mean especially 'A trip to the rinok' !  I Just thought someone might be able to simply answer the question really :)

I dunno, you have to look on OLX.  I found a pure bread beagle on OLX....which I bought when he was 4 weeks old....

Ask at the vet offices.

We bought my daughter's West Highland Terrier down there in Goatville where you live in 2016 for 6000 UAH with papers. I'm not sure where my wife found it.

That's a lot of money to make pudding.....It's cheaper to get schwarma if you like dog that much.

Several factors go into dog prices that I see.

Do you want papers certifying parents are registered purebreeds?  Do you want then the breeder to register your pet with whatever association certifies your dog as "pure."  I think each breed has their association that certifies.  Probably some overall coordination of these associations, don't know.  From people I heard that wanted to "officially" breed and sell purebred dogs, they told me the "associations" weren't letting them "join" or certify their dogs.  But don't know if real obstacles to enter the market or if really official supply is restricted, but could be issue on pricing.

With Yorkies.  The smaller dogs will be more expensive.  The "mini" are the smallest types and will likely be most expensive.  I see a lot of fairly "largish" Yorkies around, don't know if they are pure or not.  Not a specialist.  So what your friend bought exactly will largely affect the price.

How much does a dog cost?  How much do you want / ready to pay?  Something for everyone......

Quite, which is why there is such a wide range of prices. They are also fairly high maintenance requiring regular bathing and brushing, coupled with fairly regular visits to the doggie beauty parlour to have the dog's coat properly trimmed.

Well there's always more cute puppies in the pound (that fish in the sea thing is way over used).  Don't toss the leash and dishes out, you never know when The One will pop on your radar.
