I would love to adopt a small or medium sized dog. It would have a great home. My only problem is that we are on a low income as I am a student and am on benefits. I cannot afford one hundred and fifty pounds or two hundred pounds all at once that the rescue places are looking for. I am looking into getting pet insurance which I can afford to look after my new dog should he or she gets ill. I have a small but great flat and love walking, and indeed have to walk so he or she would be the best walked dog and loved dog in the world! I feel sad that soo many places are charging soo much and it means that I cannot adopt a lovely little dog, when I know that there are soo many out there needing a home. If someone could help me with this I would be very happy. If I may add: I have been brought up with various dogs, everything from doberman cross' to Jack Russells over the years and I have learned how to train dogs from my dad who has had dogs since he was sixteen! I feel that I am capable to look after and train a dog giving it, as I have said before, a great home.
