Well, that is a loaded question but a very good one to ask before adopting a pet. You need to take into consideration what the dogs food costs will be, annual vet visits, spay/neuter costs, taking care of any illnessess he/she may get, city/county licensing, leashes, beds, collars, bowls......the list can be a long one. OOPS forgot toys, blankies....
Some of our members have spent thousands of dollars on their pets that have been ill, lame or even aged.
I hope this gives you an idea of some of the costs that you will have.
It Is What It Is
