Who pays $1000-$1200 for a dog!?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

*Do you feel guilty for not adopting from a pound, or rescuing an unloved dog?*

My question is how many of you have bought a full blooded dog?  How many don't feel bad about not buying one from the pound or off Craigslist?

I know there are lots of little puppies and dogs that need and deserve happy homes, but here's where I have a slight problem.  I want this one type of breed, and I want it to start as a puppy.

My husband and I took our kid to the pound today to look at cats and dogs, and only one cat stuck out to me, but none of the dogs warmed my heart.  And I feel soo guilty about it, because I am going to spend more money on this dog than I ever have on myself!  This dog we want is a full blooded lab.  My family has raised labs since I was a baby, and my toddler loves my mom's dogs, and they love him back.  I want him to experience all the joys of growing up with 'man's best friend'!

Was it one of those miniature yorkies?  Why don't you like it?

I got one before, it was AKC but had worms so I took it back the same day I got it.

I haven't--the few dogs and cats I have had were mutts.

I would if I had my heart set on it. Buy from a breeder, not a pet shop.

Rescues charge more than that-they have to because the shots and neutering costs more than that.
