There are ALOT of shelters charging outrageous prices.
I know a guy here in Ohio who breeds Border Collie/Aussie Shepard mix dogs (and loves every one of them). His rates are really cheap, and the dogs are beautiful. Anyone wants info, let me know.
Yeah if they are charging that much, and you got the money, GO FOR IT! But it seems to me what they have themselves is a dog addiction, and we're paying for the fix! My rescue doggie is really cheap, so I'm going to bring a truckload of hay for them to use in the kennels, and some other stuff too.
