If you're adopting the dog from a rescue group or shelter, no, I don't think it's a great deal to pay. If you're buying it from a pet shop or a back yard breeder or puppy mill, yes, it's an incredible amount to pay as all the suffering of the dogs involved in such operations and all the health issues with the poorly bred dogs they produce increases that amount 1000 times.

I second clm's comments.

Good breeders do not sell their puppies unregistered,they furnish registrations within six months.Aussies are prone to some serious problems that can be screened for by caring breeders.Some lines are more work oriented than others,so find out about your puppies parents.Three hundred and fifty is way too much to pay for a puppy from a backyard breeder.

I agree with clm and Lise.
