    Smile What Breed am I??

    Hello,

    I am thinking about adopting this dog.

    I have two questions. 1) Does anyone know what type of mixed breed this is? 2) Is $450 a high price when adopting? (We are on a tight budget so I want to gauge what people think )

    Adopting a dog shouldn't be more than $100 or so, sounds like you're purchasing a dog!

    Having a dog completely fulfills my need to be called Mommy.

    "I shall pass this way but once; any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."

    Apologizing does not mean that you are wrong and the other one is right. It simply means that you value the relationship much more than your ego.

    Thanks Lisa.

    I thought it was very high. I guess they want you to pay for it's shots/neutering.

    Maybe there is some freight costs involved as well. He is in TX and I am in CT.

    I think he definitely has shepard in him. If he does, I imagine he is a very smart and social dog. Good luck!

    Looks like a mix between a spaniel and a retriever?

    Some of the Atlanta rescues that pull from our shelter have adoption fees upwards of $300.00. I think it has a lot to do with the cost of veterinary services (and shelter pull fees) in an area, and also they want the adopter to have a good solid investment in the animal. Unfortunately, many people only value what has a monetary value, and free or cheap pets are considered to be of less worth to them.
