THE PRICE OF PUPPY LOVE
Getting a new dog can be such an exciting idea that it's easy to forget there's a financial component to bringing home a four-legged friend. Whether you're adopting a dog from a shelter or splurging for a puppy from a breeder, the breed you choose can really impact the amount of money you spend. From upfront costs such as breeder or adoption fees to feeding and lifetime healthcare costs, there are plenty of factors to consider. While some breeds take only a small bite out of your budget, others can be howlingly expensive.
