If a dog’s average lifespan is twelve years, buying a puppy and caring for him throughout his life will cost $4,620 to $32,990. You may spend more or less depending on the dog you adopt. Keep in mind that this doesn’t include expenses like emergency medical care.
The cost of a dog is an investment, both of your money and your love. So before you adopt a puppy or dog make sure you’re willing to spend what it takes to keep a pet healthy and happy for his lifetime.
