Default Oh man... I want...

Sounds like Mia's twin.

Adopt a Papillon: Bailey in Missouri: Petfinder

If only I could have another. Poor thing has already been through 3 homes and she sounds just fabulous.

But what would you do with two Mias!?!

You need to get her, so we can hear twice the stories.

Oh my! She would fit right in your little herd for sure!

I can't believe she is less than 8 months old and has been through 3 homes already How sad for her. I hope whoever she goes to next will be well screened and ready to be forever!

She would either really help, by wearing out Mia, or make you actually crazy, lol

What a cutie!

Sounds fabulous, but I don't know about shelling out $400!

I know, I was sad about that too. She really doesn't sound like a hard dog either to me. She sounds like someone wanted a more of a decorative dog and didn't realize what they were getting into. Bored papillons = major trouble.

Zoom, that's the same price all the breed rescues charge for healthy young dogs.

I agree. Dobe rescues charge that and sometimes more!

I understand where that money goes, to help other dogs that need a safe place of course. The sad part is some people see that price and don't consider it a charitable donation (in exchange for saving/bringing home a dog) to make their rescue work possible and they figure it's less hassle and cheaper to get a pup from the paper

(not talking to you zoom, I'm sure you know how rescue/shelters work, LOL)

Not in my area! Back in KC, I adopted Sawyer for $175 from Aussie rescue, Virgo was $95 from an area shelter and even the "overpriced little dog rescue" tops out at $250.

Here in Denver, I've found $250-$300 for the little breeds, $250 for Colorado Aussie rescue (not affiliated with ARPH) and the main shelter, Denver Dumb Friends League ranges anywhere from $55-$300 based on the age of the pet.

I guess if you get people willing to pay $400 for a rescue dog, that's great and certainly goes towards helping keeping the rescue solvent and able to help more dogs, but sheesh! I was taken aback when ARPH raised their prices to $200! I think the higher prices end up doing more harm than good in the long run.

Three homes? I would really be interested in why this dog has been in three different homes.
