    No.
    Just for grins, try pricing Labradoodles and Silver Labs.

    Caveat emptor.

    In the late 80's I bought a pup for $850 from a bitch out of 2 NFC/s bred to a NFC - washed out @ 6 month
    I also bought a pup around that time for $1,000 out of a NFC & a FC-AFC who proved to be a competitor
    Around 2000 I got a pup for $750 from FC-AFC & a bitch with a FC-AFC sire that also proved a competitor
    If you want a dog with all the clearances you have to pay for that - if you buy a dog that doesn't have the
    clearances you better know your dogs - With all the close breeding taking place & the use of the same sires
    predominately you better know what you are looking at - JMO

    My wife has a friend that paid $2500 for her Labradoodlemutt. That's insane.
