Cost of having ONE dog is about $1050 +/- year (if he is healthy and don't need to go to the vet for other things) and doesn't need anything else. I didn't even add in their neuter fees (one time).
When we first had a dog I didn't think that they would cost us so much. I was told only a few hundred dollars....BUT
I think is all WORTH IT!!They both love me unconditionally (even if I smack them for being naughty) or tease them. PRICELESS!!!
