|Shelters are the BEST DEAL in town on price!
A pet store will sell an non AKC American Eskimo puppy for $800. The shots will run $100 from a private vet. If you don't want messy periods and pet overpopulation the spay will cost another $200. Grand total $1100!
A breeder will sell an AKC female pup for $1500. Add shots and spay - Grand total $1800!
You can get a 1 yr old female (most likely purebred) American Eskimo from the shelter here for $150, and that includes a spay, all the shots, a microchip and a bag of food!
Plus you get the added glow of saving a life.
I never understood why do people only get their pets from pet stores when there are lovely purebreds and hybrids for so much less in the shelter - Also quite frequently they have puppies too.
