Give a lost or abandoned dog a good home. You could give a lot of loving for £2k
Going the rehoming route was something we had in mind but the rehoming organisations are all at 6's and 7's presently, they are not functioning as normal, most have all their dogs out to foster. it is almost impossible to see dogs 'in the flesh'
Mrs Avtur has very specific reasons for wanting a puppy not an older dog which limits the options for re-rehoming. Also, the vetting process that some organisations operate are more than a bit off-putting, I understand that they have to have processes in place to ensure that dogs go to a good home, but some are more than a bit draconian.
Our £2k price limit puts us right at the bottom end of what's available, Lockdown has seen prices escalate to quite unbelievable levels for many of the popular breeds. In months to come this trend may reverse and indeed some of the dogs bought during lockdown may well end up in the rehoming environment.
But that's in the future, we are not in a position to be calculating and wait for these possible future trends.
