Wow, it's been many years since I bought my last dog. I went on kijiji Pets and am appalled at the high prices and everything is done so differently now? Before when buying a dog, I would look in my local newspaper, call them up to view the dog and bring cash to pick it up and take it home. Now the prices are skyrocketing in our Province, money transfer has to be sent to hold the dog which is non refundable deposit, and then we have to travel 1 to 2 hours out of town to pick it up and drive 1-2 hours back at our expense.. The Shelter dogs are cheaper and you get your money's worth, but unfortunately all they mostly have are big puppy breeds and I can't have a big dog, only small to small medium, so that limits my choices. I hope I can find one that is reasonable and in the size I want.
