Collie puppies range in price from $200 to $1,200, with females typically costing more than males, as of 2015. Private sellers sometimes offer the puppies for a lower price, especially puppies lacking registration with the American Kennel Club. Shelters may also offer rescued collies, usually for small adoption fees.
Breeders often factor in the cost of veterinary care and registering the dog prior to the dog going to its new home. This may include immunizations, de-worming and other veterinary costs.
Collies are high-energy dogs who need to have plenty of exercise. They live an average of 10 to 15 years and grow to weigh between 30 and 45 pounds.
