Don't buy! ADOPT!!!!
Any way.. I know that our dogs' yearly boosters are about £40 each.
I'm not sure about a puppy's but it cost about the same (£40) for the first course of injections for some of our rescues for who we had no idea if they'd ever been vaccinated before. (Because my mother actually rescued them herself. Most rescue centres will have already vaccinated and neutered/spayed the dogs before they let them go up for adoption. )

Are you in University ?
Buying a puppy is a BIG-DEAL.
Even if you are in part-time Uni, its difficult to find enough time to look after a puppy under 6months of age.
Unfortunately, I highly doubt a rescue center would part with a resident if you're a student, so this isn't an option either.
I got a puppy at the beginning of this summer, and it is alot of hassle, and not as fun as it may seem.
Puppies go past the 'cute' stage at around 6 months, and this is when most hit puberty. This is when rules and boundaries will be tested, and this is why most dogs in rescues are aorund this age, up to 2 years - due to lack of training.
You are obviously not responsible enough yet to own a dog, as obviously the cleverest thing to do would be to ask nearby vets what their prices are.
In my part of the country, a set of injections for a pup costs £50/60 with yearlys being at £30.
