A healthy Belgian Malinois pup costs up to $2500. You should expect that breeders at this price will include vaccinations, microchips, and health checks. Plus, it’s an expensive puppy, and most breeders will ask for a deposit of about $500.

Although each rescue center will charge different fees depending on the age of the dog, it is expected to pay about $350 for an adult Belgian Malinois. It’s a better choice for puppies who don’t have time, energy, untrained, or those who just want to save a dog need a home. There are many benefits to adopting an adult dog.
