|Apparently the only dogs in my area are pit bulls and chihuahuas. About 30 min north, the only breeds I could find available were labs and border collies. It's so sad seeing all the pit puppies in the shelters around here. At least the shelters here are no-kill, although what a sucky life that would be.
After seeing what's currently available, either to buy or adopt, I think we've all but thrown out our checklist. Clearly if we are considering a Siberian Husky, we are no longer concerned about shedding and activity level. The only thing we are all an agreement about is that we want a puppy. I'm fully aware of how much work they are, and I'm willing and able.
I have some appointments this week with breeder and a rescue to visit some puppies and their moms. I decided this weekend that we just need to get out there and visit some pups. I was leary of doing that until we found one that was a definite possibility, because I didn't want my son to get upset if we didn't end up with it. But, obviously internet research isn't going to actually tell me squat about the individual dog.
