I wasnt going to get one as I said before, I wanted a purebreed poodle, but none were available so I got my little maltipoo, she is fabulous, so easy and cute as a button. They can charge the amount they do as they are in such high demand as they seem to be free from all the problems that purebreed dogs are having lately, I dont think you can get a small dog for under $300.00 here, mostly they range from $400. to $1,000. You can still get some large mutts for real cheap as they are not in so high demand as the little dogs.

you are joking right?


free from all the problems purebreds are having? such as what? Please fill me in on what your malti poo doesn't have that purebred maltese and purebred poodles do.

they charge the price they do because people who don't research before buying will pay that price because of some string of BULL the "breeder" feeds them. Do you know why pure bred dogs from GOOD breeders are so expensive and may not go as quickly as your "designer dogs for the truly ignorant" because that money goes towards the cost of breeding good pups. It goes to the cost of all the testing that should be done and other such medical needs. What they sell the pups for is often not even enough to cover but a portion of the bills. That money doesn't go into the breeders pocket so they can buy more bitches to impregnate so they can make more money.

You don't see a problem with buying a dog because "it's the thing ot have" at the time? Would you adopt an asian child because its the IN thing. Come on now
