chihuaha cost to raise
Although you might think 200 is a reasonable price an you deserve to get a good Chihuahua dog for that, I can assure you that that is not way a person can register, dna, and vaccinate a litter of healthy Chihuahua pups from a champion pedigree and sell them for dollars. I didn't say anything neagative to you just that the price was cheap. Your not gong to ge a show quality animal at hat price. ssuming that greed is the motive of show breeder is completely erroneous. It's your choice to buy a cheap dog. Thre is a market for mixed brees as well as a market on the other end of the price continuum for show quality pets. But I can guarantee you a breeder who is showing/breeding select breeding AKC champion (titled)stock will have no way to sell a dog at that price.Even the shipping costs more than that. Breeding for a hobby is a money profit business.Breeding show dogs as a hobby is not. The entry fees, gas, parking, grooming and care of a well card for show dog is extremely expesive and no money is ever made off show dogs even no matter if they run 3500. A person breeding mixed breeds and selling their dogs 200 a piece at 7 weeks old can make much more money than anyone who cares to hold on to their dog,till age 7-12 months old, selecting out the show prospects, weeding out pet qualit, and guarantees them(all) as healthy, gives all puppy shots,wormings,rabies shot and grooming, training etc, tests, and championship titles and da the parent. Believe me, there is no profit motive of profit on a price of 2500 nd up etc. on a show quality dog that is asking price of 3500. It takes thousands of dollars to campaign a dog to it's tiltle and by the time it isall said and done, there was absoutely no money made. I have records to prove this...Breeding dogs is not a hobby, showing dogs is the hobby. Just breeding them and selling them at 200 dollars at 7 weeks before any shots are needed, no time is spent an no reserh done by showsetc on the stck, is pure profit. If someone profits,its a pet breeder, not a show breeder, for example, say, 200 dollars on each pup at 250 per sale, and a show breeder profit nothing on a dog at 3500, after 1-2 years of care , training, vet etc etc, then who is profiting?? The hobby show person has not profitted at all, just the pet quality breder. But the hobby show person's animals will be alot closer to the AKC breed expectations which we call the AKC breed standard. Shw people won't sell breeding stck topet breeders and they limit the AKC papers on pets or spay and neuter, so things are not going to change on this either. Like I said have fun with your dog you buy or rescue for 2-300 dollars. Even rescue here charges 250 for a pup.
