would like to read an article for once that didn't require me to scroll through a hundred pages of useless bing search results.  Maybe they could just write a real story and list the info in their own article

I hate these Bing articles that require you to click to gain information. Very annoying. I'm at the point of just not reading them anymore when I see "Oh, it's one of THOSE." Grr.

Just think of all the shelter animals that could be helped with the money that people pay breeders.  It's depressing how people will let so many  dogs and cats die so they can get their specific breed.

Just give us the price up front. Knowing how much a pet cost is not worth the search.

Leave the wild animals in the wild.  Didn't we already talk about chimps in the news the other day biting off people's hands and faces?

I feel the same way as the rest of you folks. I'm tired of reading and not getting the story.

By the way how much were the cats?

Dimwits obsessed with particular breed is what keeps the abusive puppy mills/breeders going.

i had a cat that was identical to the Khao manee cat.  Pure white with one blue eye and one golden eye.  Bred and born in WV, USA.  Didn't cost me anything, I had the mother.  And I have seen others like that in this country, so I have to agree with so many of the statements here.  Adopt from the shelters, so many are put down every day, save a life.

Don't breed or buy while homeless animals die in shelters. Adopt from the shelters and ALWAYS spay and neuter. There are NO RESPONSIBLE BREEDERS as long as 10's of thousands of animals are euthanized every single day in the US alone. ANYONE who makes money off the backs of animals is a POS. And anyone who buys a pet is an irresponsible idiot.

My cat Oliver (domestic shorthair) I got in the fourth grade (my neighbors cat had kittens) plays fetch and goes for walks with me. He would hate a leash though. He also didn't cost me $7000. He is one of the best freebies I have ever got.

are u really an animal lover if u spend $1 million + on one pet???  please consider that same million could spay or neuter thousands of homeless animals and put a dent in the vicious cycle of stray animals.  you may not be aware that approx. 2.7 million animals each year are euthanized in the u.s.!!!

Get a rescue dog/mixed breed much fewer health problems.

The mastiff and the cloning were surprising.  The price for the rest is typical and for most the cost wasn't outrageous.  I know German Shepherd breeders who charge $5K for their dogs due to desirable traits.  Plus the Bing nonsense is not necessary.

Got news for you Bing. I think this "click here" for more info is crud. I will use Google if I really want to know what that cat cost. Just to spite you.

They left out Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Beautiful african lion dogs that are usually starting price of $1000-$1200. In response to those against breeding- If people don't breed dogs then the fullbred dogs would die out. Is that justice? I think not.
