    I’ve been adopting rescues for many years. I recently started looking for a small dog to rescue. The problem with using Petfinder is that most rescues/shelters don’t give many details including the cost. You have to fill out the application to adopt to sometimes get this info. And while I totally understand that animals are usually neutered/spayed and current on vaccines and rely greatly on the fees they collect when a pet is adopted, almost everyone that I have seen are anywhere from $350 and up. I’ve seen some as high as $600. It’s always more to adopt small dogs and puppy/young so it’s based more on supply and demand than anything. While they are vetted before being up for adoption, little is known about the pets past which can lead to further behavior problems once in a new home. I “rescued” two dogs, each mixed breeds, over the past year (at different times), to quite an expense in adoption fees, only to have to return both of them due to aggression problems. You do not get your money back. So, in the last year I have lost $600 on 2 rescue fails. So now I will decide on the breed I would really like and search for an AKC registered breeder and get a small puppy that I can start raising from day 1.
