Chihuahua Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 5/5/2006
my daughter and i are starting to breed chihuahuas and dont know how much money to charge for the puppies. i have heard that the smaller they are, the more to charge for them, but we dont know whether to do that or not. our puppies will be anywhere from 3.5-4 lbs as adults. i have seen these chihuahuas to cost from $300-$1500 and sometimes more than that. we are lost on exactly how much to chargefor them. please help! thanks!!!

6/6/06 This all depends on where you are located and where you intend to sell your puppies. It also depends if they are show quality or pet qualitfy. If they are AKC registered or not. In small towns, we do not get the prices that the large cities get. I had a family come from the large city to buy from me. My chihuhua, AKC show quality maturity weight 3 lb chocolate with white markings smooth coat sold for 800.00 They were amazed at my price. They stated they had been looking in their area (big city) for a year and anything close to the quality of mine was 2000.00 and above. So there are a lot of factors to consider. Belinda
11/5/06 it depends on many things...from the sounds of it your daughter has unregistered you need to sell all these pups at pet price of no more then 300 and place them on spay/neuter contracts then fix your daughters dogs and never breed again Alexis & Steve
