thank you all for the welcome and your suggestions.
I adopted my last dog (max, he was only 8 weeks old) 7 years ago...we only paid like $40 adoption fee back then. I guess it has become more expensive to shelter these dogs.
The thing is, I can't adopt a grown dog, I need a puppy around 8-10 weeks old, cause we have a little child (2 years) at home.
Maybe one of the breeders from this forums can give me a deal
thank you guys once again
