Some dog breeds can be quite pricier than others so it’s perfectly natural to wonder how much do miniature dachshunds cost and why? “Designer breeds” like the mini Doxie are almost always significantly pricier than other dog breeds, even those similar to them.
The price will still be in the 3-digits, however, which is very low-cost for a mini dachshund. Besides, not all mini Doxies in shelters are purebred. It is important to make sure the dog is as healthy as possible, however.
Is a pricier mini dachs’ cost worth it compared to a more inexpensive mini dachs from a puppy mill or a pet store? Yes, almost always. The health benefits you get from a well-bred dog far outweigh the lower cost offered by most puppy mills.
