Bella only a few weeks old.

Are you looking to buy a Boston Terrier, but unsure what it will cost you. When I bought Bella, a purebred Boston Terrier, back in 2009 we were able to get her from a breeder for $350.00 in Missouri. But that was over a decade ago. After a few hours of research, here is what I found out.

How much does a Boston Terrier cost?

The average price for a purebred Boston Terrier puppy online is $1,299.68. The median price of over 137 different breeders across the country was $1,050. The price can vary wildly from as low as $350 to as high as $3,299.

Where is the best place to find affordable Boston Babies?

Buying a puppy can be expensive, so be sure to do your own research online. The most affordable place I could find was Craigslist as well as shelters. The only thing you may be missing from the shelter or Craigslist is the American Kennel Club (AKC) registration, which ensures the dog is a purebred. If a purebred Boston is important to you, make sure you see and receive the AKC Dog Registration Application before buying your new puppy.

How I did my research

In doing my research for this article, I used the following marketplace websites:

The process

I went to every site and found 30 different breeders to compile an average cost of Boston’s for that site. The only place I was unable to pull 30 breeders from was Craigslist. In Craigslist, I was unable to verify if the puppies were purebred, so I did not include them in my sample. The Craigslist sample size included 17 breeders.

Final thoughts…

Buying a Boston Baby should be an exciting time for you. Emily and I drove eight hours round trip to buy Bella. A local pet store was selling Boston’s for $1,200.00, and we purchased Bella for $350.00, the weekend drive was worth it.

Do your research and call around to see where you can get the best price. If you scoured the internet long enough, and you’re patient, you should be able to buy a purebred Boston under $1,000.
