A little bit of breed information:

Mixed breed dogs are generally healthier than purebred because they draw from a broader gene pool. When adopting a mixed breed dog, focus more on personality rather than breed. This can help so that you appreciate the dog even more. Love him on his own terms and he will love you back more.

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”

    That is sad. Hopefully someone can fish up $300 to take this pup home. Thats a good hunk of change for a mix.

      That $300 pays for the shots, spaying & flea/tick prevention that cost significantly more than $300 if you were to go to the vet on your own. Not to mention mixed breed dogs have significantly less health problems than inbred dogs from backyard breeders and puppy mills.

        Amen ! Someone who knows what they’re talking about.

      The ADOPTION FEE is minor compared to the money that is spent to have the dog adoption ready. She is housed, fed, vetted, etc. She could be there months at a time. $300 is a minor figure. It is NOT about the breed or buying a purebred. It is about getting a great home for a great dog.

      I’m sure that the $300 is to help cover some the vet bills that the rescue had to pay for when they got her all fixed up and ready for her new home. Its not cheap and whoever ends up with her will be glad that all they had to pay was the adoption fee. I hope she finds an amazing home soon.

        Someone else who knows what they are talking about ! Do people really think, wow, they are asking $300 for this dog. Rescues put out a whole lot more than that for dogs that come in sick, under weight, not spayed, etc. Additionally, rescues run on donations, hardly a money making business like breeders.

    Thank you for all the great support for rescues. It is truly a lot of hard work, but these pets finding a forever safe home are worth it.
