Pricing & Costs

Not all breeds are priced the same way; some are bred champions and others recreationally. Some breeds follow Hollywood trends, and some are rarely bred at all driving up their prices. The lowest price we've ever had advertised for the Chihuahua is $1; the most expensive price is $8,000. Generally the average Chihuahua costs around $595 to purchase. Keep this in mind when you see the prices vary greatly within our listings. If you don’t mind having the runt of the litter, or a pup who is far from a champion Chihuahua, by all means explore the cheaper options. But if you want a model pup you’re likely going to have to pay for it. Just be sure you’re not supporting a backyard breeder or abusive owner as sadly these days we see far too many of them around.
