The Price of a Puppy
What can you expect to pay for a well-bred Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy from Othropedic Foundation for Animals health screened and American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club Champion parents from a RRCUS breeder?
Prices range from: $1,200 to $2,500
The price may vary do to the overall quality of the puppy, and any cosmetic ridge faults, kinked tails, overbite, too much white, show quality vs pet quality, etc. The price of the puppy is small when you consider the cost that goes into caring for a dog with quality food, training, veterinary care, toys, treats, show expenses, etc.
You aren't buying a toy or a new car but a "living sentient being" who should become a member of your family. Not to be discarded when you bore of the novelty of the puppy that is now a large dog. Not to be left and neglected in the backyard. Training and constant socialization is a must with this breed. These dogs live for 10-12 years on average. Think before you buy!
