Are thoroughbred dogs worth more than regular dogs?

Yes, thoroughbred dogs are sold at a higher price than those dogs who are not thoroughbred. Although the term for dogs is called purebred, and the term thoroughbred is more used for horses. Those who are responsible breeders spend more time and money on vet care on pure breeds, including genetic and health testing. The breeders don't tend to make a profit off of their pure bred puppies as they put so much money into making sure they are healthy and well trained dogs, which is why they are more expensive when selling them.
