Since when do cross breeds command such high prices? $900 seems to be the going rate for small cross breeds. I smell undeclared income.
Anyone else horrified? Would you pay that for a multiple mixed breed?
I'm not against mixed breeds, and charging enough to cover the vet checks and vaccinations of puppies, but this seems excessive to me.
Here are a few examples I found today on a 'for sale' site:
Maltese/bichon mother and Maltese/Pomeranian sire. $950
Sidney silkey/ Maltese and Silky/Maltese and Shih tzu/Bishon $750
Shih Tzu/Bichon $950
Mini 'Schnoodles' $1,2000
There are lots of mixes of Maltese, which happen to be Australia's most dumped breed.

"It's just that they weren't designed by a dog breeder. They were designed by a dog breeding."
Anyone here pay that much?16 AnswersDogs1 decade ago
