    Shelters AND rescue shelters DO sell the dogs in their care……the cost covers their food and Vet bills!!!!

    Adoption from a shelter is wonderful but not for everyone either. I have 3 young children and can’t take the risk of adopting a dog that may have behavior issues. I always check the breeder I buy from, there are responsible breeders out there too.
