According to this report, the total first-year cost of owning a dog is $1,270 and for a cat it's $1,070.

As you can see, having a pet can cost you over $1,000 in the first year, and well over $500 each additional year.

Depending on the food you buy and sudden medical expenses, the costs could be much higher.

Because well bred dogs are expensive to breed.

The average litter can cost $2,500+ or so to breed by the time all is said and done.

If there is only 1 or 2 pups in the litter as is often the case with toy dogs even at $1,000 the breeder is often taking a big loss.

Any purebred dog is going to be expensive.
