Where I live in New England, a lab or cockerpoo puppy costs upwards of $2500. A corgie is $3000. No kidding. The dogs available at my two local shelters come up from kill shelters in southern states, and are either pitbulls or hounds. There’s no in between anymore. It’s either a designer dog or it’s a pitbull or hound. I get wanting to stop puppy mills. People who abuse animals should be stopped. But why do we have to let dog fighters and hunters determine what the family dog is?
