Jamie: How Much Do Briard Puppies Cost?
This is PURE curiosity, they're not exactly a common dog here and I couldn't find any ads to see what they sell for. We adopted a Briard Bearded Collie mix about ten years ago(he looks like he has nothing else in him honestly lol), and while watching the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show just now, my grandma was wondering what they would cost to buy as a puppy from a proper breeder. It was an out of the blue question, and I have no idea since I've never really looked into that stuff. I've seen ads in the paper, but not for Briards. I've seen Newfoundlands go for $ 2k. WOW.

We're not looking to buy, we always adopt when we get dogs. Just curiosity...and yes, I KNOW it will likely depend where I am and how good the breeder is, but what have you seen them sold for before?

a guarded breed, not may byb and as far as I know no puppy mills breeding. I would guess around $ 3000 for a pet quality dog, more for a show dog.
good for you for adopting. My current breed is yorkie) but I use to have a clear red min pin, so excited the min pin wone the toy group.

Who says your dog is even that mix? The shelter is surely just GUESSING what breeds are in the dog.
$ 2K is about right for a starting price for a registered, well bred Newfoundland. The prior owners of my Newf paid $ 2,200 for him. Briards are far less common a breed but not as popular as the Newfoundland. I couldn't find any breeders with prices, either, but I'd imagine at least $ 1,000 - $ 1,500 for a pet quality dog.
Note that "ads in the paper" are seldom reputable breeders with AKC registered animals. They're more often horrible backyard breeders lying about what breeds their dogs are. Or if they are registered that only means pedigrees are tracked - not that their reputable. Reputable breeders seldom have to advertise their litters in the paper as puppies are reserved before they're even born!

Ads in the paper are not pure bred dogs, they mixes and they are all over priced
Shelters only guess, your dog is some sort of collie mix and likely does not have Briard in it.
Reputable breeders don't advertise in papers. Ever. They have a waiting list for people to buy puppies before the puppies are even born. I hope you have a lot of land and sheep or goats for it to herd since its a working breed and needs a job.

If you find the Briard Club of America website, or go to www.akc.org, you can find some breeders listed them. Some list their prices.
