Whether you visit the shelter or buy from a breeder, adding a new puppy to the family may be more expensive than you think.
If you're inspired by the Westminster Kennel Club dog show, be prepared for higher up-front costs. Even a quick review of breeders' sites turns up prices that range from several hundred dollars to $5,000-plus, depending on breed and lineage.
