Don't get me wrong I LOVE mutts, but why do they cost so much all of a sudden? When I was younger mutts were usually given away for free and now the pet stores want $450-$600. Can anybody explain this to me?

Shelters are better. They fix the dog and give it all it's shots for a lot less than what it would cost to have it done at your vet's office. If you are not picky about a specific breed, I would get a dog from a shelter.
We got our dog for free from a friend (Australian Shepard, not mutt) and after shopping around for a good price, we ended up paying hundreds to get everything done.
