She got sprayed by a skunk and followed me home from the bar one night when I was wasted, and her owners never came forward to claim her, so I kept her.

A close friend of ours breeds Beagles for himself and a select few for hunting. Our best dog ever, Little Man was one of his and we got him because he licked my toes through my sandals and I fell in love!!! Our Maya, the Beagle we have now ( Little Man R.I.P. 7/05 )was a hunting dog reject. She's near sighted and would never run with the other dogs to chase rabbits or other small game. So we got her because she needed a good home!!! She's such a sweet heart!

I always purchase mine from a breeder. I had two bad experiences with shelter pups. Both times they tried to bite me. With children in the home, I was taking any chances. This doesn't mean you shouldn't buy from a shelter. I just can't choose good ones through a shelter, I guess.

Oh, and neither of them came from a puppy mill. Pet store, yes, but one came from a breeder in New York and the other came from one in Missouri. The store only works with breeders. Long story, but it's a great (and rare) place.

I get all my dogs from breeders that I know. I wouldn't have a problem with a shelter dog if I didn't care what kind of temperant I would get. That is my ONLY issue... you don't know the dogs personality traits. I would have no problem getting a 'purebred' dog from a rescue though.

I had been planning on getting a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, when Maximus came into my life. Someone in my office had bought him and soon after realized all the hard work that a puppy can be and decided to give him up. I offered to reimburse her for all medical costs that she had incurred and give him a loving forever home and it has been heaven ever since! Despite having a million and one health and emotional problems, he has definitely been worth every second and penny spent. There is nothing like the love of a puppy who knows he has been given a second chance!
