The wife has talked forever about getting a dog and it seems like now she finally wants to pull the trigger and get one!
She saw an ad in the paper for Border Collies for $300. She seemed hellbent on getting one, but I've been trying to talk her into adoption/rescue.
My old roommates rescued a Dalmatian and she turned out to be a sweet dog. In the process of my searching I found a dog I would like to adopt.
Here she is:
Of course I need to actually meet the dog and go through all that process first, but I guess the question is, has anyone dealt with adoption/rescue?
Is there anything I should look out for? Potential cons of getting a rescued dog? Any pros, other than helping to save a dogs life?
I think this will help me convince my wife we don't and probably shouldn't buy a dog.
