Re: Average Cost of a Vizsla puppy
While I'm not going to condone purchasing a "premium" puppy as a necessity when getting a good dog, I do understand the need to question the varying prices in dogs from reputable breeders.
In my experience the price doesn't necessarily reflect the quality of the dogs as much as it does the quality of the breeder. What I'm really saying is that someone who has been breeding vizslas 15-20 years is more likely to charge more than someone who has been breeding less than 5. Now a days it's hard to find reputable breeders who charge less than $1000-1200. Still that doesn't guarantee anything to you as a buyer.
Going through the vizsla rescue org is a great way to get a great pure bred vizsla and not have to shell out a bunch of cash. While it's almost impossible to adopt/rescue a puppy, it's a great option regardless.
