Description (optional): 
One day you go to the pound, and the vet says that this adorable 1-month old puppy will be a fun 35-pound companion. Three years later and you have a 90-pound dog that sheds so much hair it feels like every week she's creating a new dog out of hair alone. According to the ASPCA, a larger dog will cost just about $15,000 in food and care over a 15 year average life.
