    After much searching and debate, we have settled on a place and the terms and we will be able to move in as of August 1st! Three acres, no neighbors, no laws! We are allowed to work on the fence and barn and stuff during July so that we can be ready to get in there as of August 1st. I am so excited!

    Cost varies. One from a good breeder who does health testing on parents and shows is usually $1000-1600. Working lines only, with health tests - $800 -$1200. Working dog lines, no health testing, $500-1000 Rescues - free to $400
    There's a whole diatribe I could get into about why spending $$ up front and buying from a breeder who is responsible is the best option. Feel free to PM me if you want details.
