#17 Miniature Pinscher
Healthy and tough for a small breed, miniature pinschers are often twice as playful in size – so it’s like buying more dogs for less. Their life expectancy is around 14 to 15 years, and thanks to their short hair their grooming costs are low. Feeding them normally costs only $ 200 per year. Common problems include Legg-Calve-Perthes disease and dislocation of the kneecap (dislocation of the kneecap), each costing between $ 1,000 and $ 2,500.
A strong breed, beagles are a great low-cost option and typically sell for around $ 650, with a life expectancy of 11 to 15 years. These loving dogs don’t require much grooming thanks to their easy-to-maintain coat, and can be fed for around $ 10 a week. Lifetime healthcare costs can range from $ 1,500 to $ 7,000, for conditions such as ear infections, allergies, and spinal problems.
