How much does a pure bred Shiba Inu puppy generally cost for purchase? Price range?

I'm looking to purchase a Shiba Inu puppy but first, I would like to know what the price range is on these dogs. I have seen very cheap prices and very expensive.

As with almost any breed you can find them free to $1,000+. Newspaper ads or petfinder classified have often have free dogs and shelters get in Shibas, around here a $59 adoption fee gets you a dog all shots, neutered, chipped, heartworm tested, Frontlined and first dose of heartworm given. From a responsible reputable breeder who has OFA'd stock, titled the parents and has a good guarantee a pet quality will prob run you $1,000 and a breeding/show pup $1,500. Most rescues charge around $200 or so for a dog all vetted so there are several options.

    You best bet is to contact multiple breeders and ask… See what you get…. then I would check into the breeders' background to find out if there has been any complaints….
