The Toy Poodle breed has been gaining in popularity in recent years. This dog has a noble appearance and has a fine muzzle and elongated neck, but its distinctive feature is undoubtedly its abundant curls that can be shaped. Another of its most outstanding aspects is that this breed can be found in a wide variety of colors: blue, silver, brown, cream, grey…
Toy Poodles are also small dogs, as their name suggests, and they do not reach 28 cm in height when they reach adulthood, as well as not exceeding 4.5 kilograms.
How much does it cost to acquire this breed of dog?
When buying or adopting our new pet, it is essential that we take certain recommendations in order to do it correctly. In fact, even the price can vary depending on the type of purchase we choose, therefore, we must take several factors into account.
In the first place, the prestige of the breeder. This point is key since it will determine both the final price of our Toy Poodle and the quality of the litter: the more prestige, the more the price will rise. Another factor to take into account is the size of the puppy, given that newborn dogs usually have a more expensive price due to the greater demand for small dogs than large ones. If in addition to saving you do not care about the size, it is best to opt for the reception of your future Toy Poodle, giving a second chance to an animal that has not had optimal conditions.
Another of the characteristics to take into account to establish the price of our new dog is the gender , since females are more expensive than males due to their low availability and greater demand. One of the causes of the predilection for females is that, in general, fewer dogs are born and others are selected for breeding, so there are usually few copies for sale.
We must also take into account both the beauty and the morphology of the puppy if we do not want to see our budget excessively expensive. That is, there are animals that are born with higher beauty characteristics than their own siblings, so their price will also be more expensive than that of their relatives. Having a Pedigree is another element that can make the final price more expensive, since this certification has an additional cost. In this sense, if our future animal has bloodlines that include champions in exhibitions, its price will also be gradually higher.
However, opting for a Toy Poodle puppy in professional breeding centers can cost $1,200 as the lowest price. However, currently the average price is around $1,800 , although all the aforementioned factors must be taken into account to know how much our budget can increase. The most advisable thing is to opt for adoption by going to shelters, since both we and our future Toy Poodle will win with this new opportunity.
