Enough with the personal attacks, or it's going to be a time out in the dog house.

As a few have mentioned, there are absolutely, 100% still breeders who are incredibly reputable, ethical breeders who are selling puppies for under $3K. PRICE ALONE is not an indication of quality, whether it's a high price OR a low price. Perspective on this issue is needed. Prices range quite a bit, especially in different areas of the country, or up in Canada. Take a breather everyone. I mean it. Last warning.

Price was the least of my concerns when I was looking for Sugar. My heart was broken from losing Coco and I needed to have another lovey in my home. Since Coco was from a byb before we knew better, I knew this time what to look for. I contacted 4 reputable breeders in Ontario and heard back from 3 of them almost instantly because I wrote a very heart felt email about the loss of our old gal, what I was looking for and what I had to offer a puppy as well as the invitation to assess my home. 3 of the 4 breeders offered me a puppy. I never asked them the price because it was not what mattered to me although the price range in Ontario in December 2018 was $3000 to $3600 Canadian.

Do your research OP and put the odds in your favour healthwise because these guys take a big piece of your heart when they're gone. You don't want your lovey to leave any sooner than they do. I got lucky with Coco. She was from a byb and lived to 4 months shy of 10 years but not everyone is that lucky.

Good luck in your search.

I did forget about them--and they are another who have been a puppy mill from the beginning.

I charge $2500 for my puppies. Actually just started charging the same price for all puppies. I know plenty of other reputable breeders who don't charge more than $2500 for their puppies. Some a little less. All with health tested parents and ears cropped of course.
