Default Prices of Boxer Puppies?

Hello, I am new here and I am looking into adding a Boxer puppy to our home. *I have done my research (at least 2 years year's worth) on different dog breeds that would be a good fit taking into consideration my family, the ages of my children, our lifestyle, etc. *I've pretty much narrowed it down to a Labrador Retriever or a Boxer. *I know they are both wonderful breeds and family-oriented dogs. *I am leaning towards a Boxer.

But I am a little perplexed. *Does the price of Boxer puppies vary in the different regions of the U.S.?

I have corresponded with different breeders in my general area and it seems that the "going rate" (for lack of a better word) is $1800, $2000, and way upwards. *Today, I spoke to a person who works for a very well known and from what I understand large Boxer breeder in my area. *This person told me that their (I don't want to say "his" or "her" as I don't want to post personal information) dogs have excellent temperments (I do have a friend who bought from this breeder years ago- her Boxer boy passed away at around 10 yrs old and he was WONDERFUL), etc. and are in the area of around $3400 and up. *Say for example, $3400 would *be pet quality plain fawn or brindle- they would have a black mask, and maybe a little white on their body. *The flashy fawns/brindles prices go upwards. *She told me that for a show quality dog, it could be in the area of a $6000, maybe more. *Now I am not planning on showing- I am happy with a pet quality. *I also asked about white boxer puppies, and she did say that sometimes they have whites and there is a mandatory spay/neuter contract for them(which is perfectly fine with me- no argument there!) and that would be more like an adoption, in the area of $500.00.

It is not a case of "if you can't afford the price of the dog, how can you afford the vet care" issue with me. *I can certainly afford vet care. *But I am a little perplexed as to the prices of puppies. *I do know that it is costly for a breeder when they plan a litter and I won't negate that.

But is $1800 and up what the cost of a puppy would be? *Any input would be appreciated!

I got Lilly in the Pacific Northwest and as a white her original adoption price was $2500.00 (as a 1 yr old). *That's because of her pedigree and some of her training (they hadn't decided what she would be trained for yet). *They kept her and decided to train her as an S.D. (Service Dog) and realized that she had natural talent in the field of hearing work (WOOHOO!!! for me!!!). *I actually adopted Lilly for $600, because they dropped her "price". *No one could afford her. *I got lucky enough to get her!!! *With her training in Service Work, her breeding, her CGC, and her dual certifications her monetary value is upwards of $35,000-$40,000.

A puppy from her breeder is generally sold around $1500- $2500. *They have exellent pedigree's and temperaments.

Shoot, here (if you can even find a puppy) you would have to take a second mortgage out on your house (if it is from a responsible breeder affiliated with AKC and ABC). *Even the BYB's here charge an arm and a leg for a pup (today's paper had a listing for AKC Boxer puppies [no pedigree] slightly flashy for $1100).

So, to answer your question, yeah...it can vary from region to region, breeder to breeder (depends on their breeding "stock")...etc...etc...etc...

Sry to have highjacked the thread momentarily * *
