Well all my life, I've had two pets (birds and fish). I've always wanted you know a cool pet, a pet that didnt just sit there and stare at you or make fishy faces and go bloop bloop and swimmy in its own craps.

I live near Lancaster, PA. Most of you dog owners should know that this is the puppy mill capitol of the USA...

I don't know any breeders giving them away for free .

I'd like a cheap dog (German Shepard, Alaskan Husky, Golden Retriever or a Labrador, or the dog from Cowboy Bebop...i think its called a Welsh Corgi) are these "cheap" breeds?

Or a mixed cat, the one that looks cute and I could make lots of lol cats with (sorry my ignorance towards cat species and breeds). I think they're called tabby cats?

So my question is besides going to a puppy mill, where else could i get a dog or say a cat.

German Shepherds are NOT cheap. I have one, and we later found out he came from a puppy mill (we got him from a store in the mall). He has tons of health problems. If you want one go to a GSD rescue or Breeder. If you go to a breeder they are expensive. EDIT: And they shed TONS!

Go to a Humane Society or Shelter. There are plenty of good dogs and cats there =).

Your local pound/animal shelter.

I'd take a mutt in a pound over a purebred in a breeders mill anyday.
Poop.


Yes, poop.

Welsh Corgis are extremely smart dogs but they can use it against you. If you don't give that little bastard everything it wants it WILL purposefully take a dump on your bed when you are out of the house. Labs are probably the best dogs you could possibly have.

Go on craigslist.

Wow, if you think that is funny, you're a sick bastard.

1. You know of the stories of dog selling scams.
2. Why would you recommend that over animal shelters? You obviously are a genuine cold hearted ingrate.

For adoption?

To my understanding you go in during one of their times to view the animals (check for some in you area) and tell them what you're looking for. They'll show you all their different animals available for adoption and you can take some out to see if you like them. If you find one you like you fill out a bunch of paperwork and you'll pay something like $100-$150 dollars or something.

If that's wrong, anybody feel free to correct me.

I think the Humane Society also gives the animal it's vaccinations and microchip.

Sometimes. You will know when you go there.

Please be very careful though about letting your pet breed. You will need to secure homes for the puppies or kittens lest they end up without a home and genetically it can be risky to breed animals.

As for the original question, I highly recommend adopting animals.

I think they are either spayed and neutered when you get them, or they will give you a coupon to come back and get it done.

It all makes sense
We're capable of beauty
Through sounds that make on cringe
The dogs only hear us now
