The question is, can you afford to buy one in the first place?† And after purchasing him, can you afford the upkeep required to keep him happy and healthy throughout his long life?
While I canít tell you how much a Miniature Pinscher will cost, I will tell you not to go bargain hunting. Your new Miniature Pinscher, puppy or not, is going to be a member of your family for his entire life, so make a wise investment.† Choose a reputable breeder and learn as much as possible about Min Pinís before you start looking, so you know exactly what it is that you are looking for in a quality dog (good thing you have this guide to help you!).†
On a much smaller scale, buying a dog is like having a child.† There will be expenses associated with grooming, medical care and feeding throughout his life.† It is important to take a realistic look at your budget to be sure that you can afford this dog at this point in your life.
What costs can you expect and budget for?† Food, for one.† A good quality pet food (weíll talk more about different brands later) will help keep him healthy, happy and fit.†
Regular and emergency veterinary care should also be a factor for you to consider.† Your Min Pin requires annual shots; call a veterinarian to find out how much this will be each year.† And unless you usually have $500-$1000 in savings for emergencies, you might not be able to afford an emergency vet treatment or surgery for your pet, if needed.†
Training and obedience classes should also be considered.† Min Pinís respond well to obedience training; donít put yourself in a position where you donít enjoy dog ownership because you canít afford to solve a behavioral problem.† Factor the cost of this training into your budget.
Throughout his life, your dog will need regular exercise on a leash or in a fenced in yard.† He will also need a food dish, water bowl, identification collar and toys.†
Responsibility comes with dog ownership.† Examine your financial situation to be sure you are ready for this step.
