If you've done your research and decided on a specific breed, adoption through a breed rescue or local shelter is a great way to give a dog a second chance. Dogs found through rescue groups have often already started learning the basics of house training and obedience. In addition, while the cost of buying a purebred pup from a breeder can be fairly exorbitant, you will often pay a modest fee for an adopted purebred. In many cases these are dogs in good health and an even temperament that were given up by owners who moved or simply no longer withed to care for them.
