2. Uh-huh. And the rescue society for P.W. dogs said they only get 4 or 5 a year.
And the main reason for their return -- too rambunctious, especially for inexperienced dog owners.

I think they'd be better off getting a younger puppy from a breeder, so that they could make sure it was well trained from the beginning. And then someone with more experience but less cash could adopt one of the few rescue dogs in that breed.
