How much is Chinook?

In buying to a legit Breeder you can expect to pay $800– $1000 to Chinook puppies.

The legit breeder puts a lot of effort into high quality and healthy breeding of dogs. They provide healthy Dog Foods, visit the Vet for check-ups, Vaccinations, Vitamins, and proper Grooming of the dogs. The breeder will coup up all the expenses he/she spent to provide a healthy breed to you so expect a little expensive.

Nowadays hundreds of thousands of dogs are being abandoned that’s why instead of buying I suggest you adopt! Support those in need give them love and a home to stay for the rest of their life.

Note:  The expenses of taking care of dogs do not end in buying one after you bought or adopt your dog you must provide their necessary needs, like visit vet once a year for their health check-up, complete and follow up vaccinations, foods and provide vitamins as their maintenance and the most important is time to play and cuddle with them, I think that’s the most affordable one, giving attention to them, proper care and lots of love from you…
