My dog Blue was adopted from a family of 12 brothers and sisters. his father was a husky and his mother was a lab. Me and my family have always had that same breed, that is what our older dog who passed on was to. We have never bought a dog from a pet store, nor will we ever. I feel that the best dog is one with a history or a past, they relate more to people, than little puppies in a warm, bright petstore full of people. Don't get me wrong, they need homes to, but they live the good life for dogs. dogs in shelters, newspaper ads, thay are mostly the families income. the family we got Blue from had 4 adult dogs, 2 male 2 female. each pet was a mutt and was 100$. that family did not live in a nice house, the puppies were outside in a 6x6 cage, they were fed and the family took good care of them. I know that thousands of dogs every year are put down because a family can't take care of them, are moving, or just don't have the room. This is wrong, adoption is supposed to help a dog, not hurt it because a stupid owner doesn't realize it'll get so big, or eat so much, these dogs don't deserve what happens to them. Adoption is good, unless you don't know what you are getting into, all i can say is: know the breed(s) your dog is, know how much it will eat, what it will eat, how big will it get, and most importantly know your dog.
