Getting yourself a new pup will definitely leave a dent in your pocket, so the associated costs are something you want to know about beforehand. So, how much does a Boxador puppy cost?
Despite being a designer breed, the price of Boxer Labrador Mix puppies is not exaggerated.
Depending on the breeder you’re buying your pup from, as well as the age of the pup, you can expect to pay anywhere between $300 and $800.
Other Initial Costs
Aside from the buying price, there are other costs that you’ll need to take care of before bringing your new four legged buddy home.
These include the costs of things like spaying or neutering, vet examinations, blood tests, vaccination, deworming, and purchasing things like a crate, collar and leash, food bowls, dog food, and so on.
These will push up your initial costs by another $500 or so.
Recurring Annual Costs
Owning a pet is like caring for a child. You cannot avoid spending on them regularly.
Once you’ve brought your new furry buddy home, you’ll find yourself spending money regularly on things like dog food, flea treatments, regular health checkups, pet license renewal, training and socialization, toys and treats, pet insurance (optional but recommended), emergency medical expenses, and so on.
You should be ready to spend anywhere between $1,000 and $3,000 per year on these recurring costs for the next 10 years. Yeah, owning a pet is not cheap, but it will bring you immense joy and pride.
