It’s the same here Australia. Our rescue pup was $700. De-sexed, microchipped and vet checked. We love him, and he has bought the family so much joy.
PS. I owned a bull terrier many years a go, crazy lovable characters.
To this day this is still the sharpest knife out of the box I have purchased. It’s the first time I’ve laughed out loud when cutting a potato and carrots.
Not that important as you can always put on your own edge but an experience I’ll never forget.
