Questions & Answers
The prices for puppies in our network of dog breeders vary. It all depends on the puppy you pick and the breeder you get it from. If you pick a more rare breed that’s in higher demand, the price will be more. A more common breed will have a lower price. Long-established, highly recommended breeders also charge higher prices, while newer ones may be more of a bargain. But not to worry, if they’re in the Uptown Puppies network, you can be assured they have good experience and take good care of the pups.
