To the editor:
I see the ads for dogs of different breeds bred for the purpose of creating a “designer dog” and charging $600-$700 for pups. I love dogs and I’m sure the pups are very lovable.
However, folks, in case you were not informed, there are many mixed breed dogs at the shelter and many to choose from. I guarantee these dogs are just as cute, just as smart and just as lovable and will give you years of companionship, affection and entertainment. And the great thing is they don’t cost an arm and a leg and you will be giving an unwanted or unlucky dog a chance at a good life. I got my last dog out there; she is part boxer and part Rhodesian Ridgeback. I guess in designer terms she would be a Rhobox dog, but she is the love of my life and one of the smartest moves I’ve ever made. So, everyone looking for a great companion, please check out the shelter kennel. You won’t be disappointed.
