Every dog we own was a rescue dog. And honestly, I'll probably never buy from a breeder again. The two dogs we have now are probably two of the smartest dogs I've ever worked with, and I put 5 dogs through the 4-H program when I was younger. My dog is an Aussie/huskie mix and smarter than some of my in-laws. My wife's dog is a boxer/pit mix, completely blind and probably the sweetest dog I've ever met. That is, as long as you don't mess with his "pack" he's got vicious looking teeth and a scary bark. Sounds like adoption fees vary greatly depending on location. Both of ours were less than $200, and included desexing, first vet check, and micro-chipping. I'll try to get a picture of my puppies up sometime.
