It does depend on breed and location. i payed $125,$200,$95, and $120 these were adoption fees though. The most I payed for from a breeder was $375 and that was for a yorkie/maltese mix that was supposed to be a yorkie/poodle mix.that was before i knew about BYB as this lady was.this dog was also very stupid.
Spotty I do not need that rude comment!! The dogs parents were very very very inbred.We werent allowed to see the parents,but when she opened the door to her apartment 20 breeds of dogs ran out.
Im sure your "Purebred" mutt is very nice,to bad you got a bad deal. I paid $120 for a mixed dog. I never sll mixed dogs are stupid but this one was, I have fostered a Schnoodle,Scoodle,puggle,yorkiepoo, and some others all were very smart.But the people that adopted them sure didnt pay 2,000 dollars for a mutt they were smarter than that.
my cockersomething is very smart too,even knows how to talk quite a few human words.
ask other people on here if I know how to train dogs Im sure 99% of them say yes.even if I train different from them they still know how well my dogs are trained.make a topic on it see what they all say.

Don't respond to spotty...she's obviously trying to cause a fight regarding the whole puggle being a breed and talking about champions...I wouldn't be suprised if she's just another alias of you know who.
On topic: my most expensive dog was my rescued Border Collie. Our "free" dog cost about 2500 to get healthy.
Spotty, I honestly can't believe it. I'm sure you are not lying but, I know pug show people, and getting a good Champion sired pug is litterally like pulling teeth. Most people who show pugs are crazy protective of their lines.
Just to be clear, the parents of your puppy were AKC titled confirmation Champions? Not of a different registry, not 'field champions'? Did you get their AKC numbers? I am completely in shock.
To answer the question: A good price depends on breed, sex and quality of puppy you are looking for. The best 'value' for my money has always come from an older (senior citizen) show person that has prices stuck in the 1970's for excellent dogs. You have to look hard for them, but they are still out there believe it or not. Good luck!

I have a very sweet mix names Cody. He is a Bichon Frise/Westie mix and just adorable. We paid $150.00 for him and don't regret it at all. I have had purebred and mixes and have loved them all. They were all great dogs, not a stupid one in the bunch and I am not a professinal trainer. Why do people spend so much money on mixes is beyond me and I even question it for a purbred also. I don't care how much a person pays for their pet (as long as they are happy) I just don't get paying a large sum for them, what does that prove? When i take my dog for a walk, I am walking my dog not my bank account.
Emma, $225 Teddy $125 Squirt stud fee $100, got 1 live pup,of course we kept her! Zetta $150
The most I have paid was $350 years ago for a Rottie. Three days after I got her I had a horseback riding accident and I had to sell her because I was laid up for a year.
1 of the best dogs I ever had was free
a lab/gsp when I was a kid, he saved my baby brothers life, got between him and a rattlesnake, and would not let David move. Barked like a maniac, (and he was a quiet dog) His name was Tar, and I miss him still.
