Alright guys, I've got another question. Now I KNOW that I shouldn't get a dog based on price, and I DO NOT plan to. With that being said: how much should I expect to pay for a healthy Boston pup? I've been checking the local papers, and I have seen sort of a large price range over the past year or so...from about $200-$500, I think. Oh, and if this matters: I just want a loveable pet, I'm not planning to show.
And I'm very sorry if this is a dumb question =(
I've noticed that there seems to be a high population of owners with younger dogs (like 5 and under) and I was wondering how many here have older Bostons? Smudge turns 9 May 20th, and I can't believe it's already been that long!!
So how old are your babies??
Alright I have (yet another) question. Is it really so common to buy a BT that is sickly? I mean, I've heard a lot of horror stories about these dogs. I mean, is it a good chance that I'm going to end up with a sick puppy, here, if I don't sink a ton of money into it?
Also, I live in the Syracuse, NY area, and it was suggested several times in response to my last post that I should adopt. Does anyone know of any BT rescues close to me? I keep checking petfinder, but the closest available BTs listed are well...not very close. I also check the SPCA and Humane Society regularly. Other than that, all I've been able to locate were a few listings in the newspaper, and honestly, I like the idea of adoption better than buying a new puppy.
