Suggestions for a vacuum?

Here's the deal, I am a college student moving in to a new place in the fall and hopefully will be adopting a dog not to long after. I am in the process of furnishing the place, so as you can imagine, I'm getting a lot of freebees from relatives and people throwing stuff out so I don't have to spend a lot of money. The one thing, however, I feel like I can't be cheap about is a vacuum. What I am looking for are suggestions for which vacuum I should get considering I am getting a dog? I've done a little bit of research and everyone swears by the Dyson Animal but at $500+ I was hoping for other suggestions. I am also thinking of getting a carpet rake just to take a little pressure off the vacuum. So any suggestions?

I have a Eureka Boss with the hepa filter. It is bagless and my father was tossing one out because the belt broke. I gave it to a friend he put a new belt on and he said it was the best vacuum he ever owned. He has 3 kids, a dog, 8 cows (no the cows do not come in the house :D). I have had mine about 7 years and never had a problem with it. The belt on mine has never been replaced, never needed to. I think I paid a little over 100.
It also uses bags so you have no dusty mess when you empty the canister...

I think that most people with bagless vacuums take the canister outside and dump it not creating a dusty mess.

Here is a good article on bagless VS bag vaccum cleaners.
