Whats the general price of a sbt?
& whats the general price of a beagle?
just regualr colours ect.
The average price of a SBT puppy is between £400 - £600,there are a variety of colours within the breed,no colour is rare.
All Staffords should be tested for L2/HC and screened for PHPV & PPSC.
SBT average puppy price £300-£500
Beagle average puppy price £500-£800
I think so anyway x
there is the odd ''cheap'' one , ive been lookking around at staffys like in the sun and stuff and some are breeders but selling them cheap with the papers and everything, for like 250 pounds
All I can is be careful and research the bloodlines,good Staffords with good breeding, bloodlines & tested won't be that cheap.If you are serious about getting a SBT Pup I would advise you to go through one of the breed clubs.
is it bad if there not like 100% pure bred?
Or if they are a pure breed but there just been sold cheap?
cause im guessing that any dog could be mixed with a bit of another dog?
or can it make staffys aggressive if there not a thorough bred?
like this would this be bad to buy from?

No, however you need to be aware of the DDA,if it grows up to look "type"then it could be seized and destroyed.
Yes but good breeders tend to stck to their own breed and cross anything in.
Depends what has been mixed in and how the dog is brought up.
what is the type?
looking like a pitt bull or anything vicious?
I wouldn't buy from that litter,no mention of been KC Registered,pedigree, health tests etc.
Another thing that puts me off is the fact they own both Sire and Dam,probably to save on costs of a stud dog.
It means it has charateristics of the Pitbull,it is based purely on looks not the actions of the dog.
If it looks like a pittbull type it can be seized and destroyed as Sallyanne has said
Personally i would pay good money for a dog e.g. £500-£600, and also that they had been helth tested etc. Just so i was sure i had a good healthy quality of dog.
hmm , well i quite like a few other dogs to , cocker spaniels, springer spaniels, german spitz,beagles.
There seems to be a large controvosty over bull terrier types and i can imagine walking one down the street may cause some stern looks from people with kids.I just wish that they wasnt steriotyped with every dog thats ever done bad
I would be cautious,the litter hasn't arrived yet so how do they know they are going to be good examples of the breed ?
There is again no mention of health testing.
There's some good ones here:

Or...wait for it...wait for it...a Beagle/Staffy cross?
Best of both worlds!

We breed these breeds, and although we breed working version, be aware they are very high energy dogs, that need a lot of training, exercise and stimulation. Especially springers. So if you do opt for one of these breeds do be aware of how much exercise and playimt ehtye will need. We give ours 30 mins walk in the morning 30-40 min walk at night, out in the garden during the day, lots of playing and running around, and training. Weekends they get 3-4 hour training session in morning and 40 min walk at night. How ever the show cocker spaniel is more docile than the working type So i suggest you get a show if you do get any
yeh i think there realyyyyyy cute,
there things like sprockers lol
springer X cocker, i wouldnt mind one of them , may only be a cross breed but there beautiful, hwo big would a springer X cocker be? lol
Whoa both comined :s you sure you would be okay with that lol. Well it depends on the size of the parents. It could vary from being quite small to quite large, depending what is the prodominant gene.
Common things are common.
If you look at the cheap end of the market, then perhaps you may find a good health testing breeder who is finding it difficult to rehome pups and is doing cheaper deals.
However you are far more likely to find dodgy people selling dodgy pups.
People like bargains and enter into deals knowing full well they are getting a "pedigree" pup for a ridiculous sum and don't want to look too closely into it.
They come on here and places like it moaning about how hard done they are when things go wrong, sickly pups, uncontactable breeders, puppy farmers, pet shop buys etc. They slag off good breeders for the prices they charge, yet still want help when the "cheap" pup is found to be unregisterable or ends up requiring huge vet bills or worse case scenario dies.
You get what you pay for in the majority of cases. If you cannot afford the normal price for a pedigree pooch then look at breed rescue.
