Though I'm not up on my pit bull pricing, for most papered dogs of any breed around here, from a good breeder, you're looking at a looooooooong waiting list (usually 1.5-2 years) and at the very least $1,000. When I was looking at Danes they were $1200 for pet quality and $1500+ for show. Though it's a lot of money in general, it is absolutely the norm in this area.

Council leader softens his pit bull stance

By Sarah Langbein, Rocky Mountain News
July 25, 2006
Denver City Council President Michael Hancock is a dog lover, but he's not a fan of pit bulls.

Still, after learning that three dozen pit bulls have been killed by the city because of a ban on the breed, he's been wondering if there could have been a different outcome.

On Monday, Hancock said he's considering proposing legislation that would allow the dogs to be adopted by someone outside Denver. Currently, Denver Animal Control euthanizes the dogs if their owners have been cited twice or more for violating the city's dog ordinance.

Hancock, who said he supports the city's ban, said he started thinking about the issue during the weekend and wants to talk to other council members and the city attorney.
