I think it really depends on what part of the country or world you are in. My thoughts of what are reasonable prices for a boxer pup are.... $0 for a pet store or commercial breeder pup, and anywhere from $800-$1500 for a companion pup from a reputable breeder. For show, I'm not really too sure but I would think it would be upwards of $1200.

Around here a puppy from health tested parents can go for $800 to $1200 and a show puppy from health tested parents $1200 to $1500.

I think a reasonable price for a pup from Canada/USA is 1000-1600. I would not fall into the trap of paying more for a "show quality" puppy. You won't know if a dog is show quality until it is more mature and does well in shows.. IMO

yea that is what i expected. was justing comparing to see what others had paid. good topic. usually you can find pups for 600ish but they are usually not health tested and i think anything over 1500 is just too much.

This can also vary depending on where you are..My breeder sells her pet puppies from $700-1000, whites always should be less...Her show prospects she sells for $1500 and up...But at a young age, it is very hard for a breeder to tell what will be a good show prospect, it's a gamble, that can sometimes backfire..Some pups don't show their potential at a young age, the breeder may sell to a pet home and then the pup blossoms, this is what happened with Flick

Willow, may be off topic, but since he is show quality, do you plan on entering him?
