My DH and I have been in contact with a breeder since late March while her dog was still pregnant. The dam has given birth (4/17) and there were five puppies. One is staying with the breeder and one is going to the sire's breeder. So that leaves three. One female and two males. When we spoke to her in late March, she told us that this litter should run around $600. Well, last night I looked at her website and she has them listed at $800!! :eek: Why the big jump?? My husband and I budgeted approximately $600 for our baby, then we budgeted tons more for all the new puppy stuff and the unexpected. My DH is upset and wants to call and talk to her. I want to know - is this common? Should we ask her to honor her original quote or compromise on a lower price? Anyone else out there experience this? Any thoughts on what to do?
