Welcome to dog lovers.com!!!
Ive just never been a dog man. My patience wears to thin. Horses, cows, other farm animals I have patience for. Just not dogs.
I look at it like this. Dogs have 1 purpose at my house. To bark at night to maybe make an intruder think twice about getting in the barn, outbuildings etc. Thats it. Im not looking for a companion or the like. My daughter likes dogs but could really care less about which dog is her's. If it came down to it in her eyes she would rather have horses, chickens, pigs etc, before the dog. In my eyes dogs are a waste of money. You already have to feed them, so I justify feeding them for the added interference they would cause a would be intruder. If they cost more money after that I look at it as a waste of money. I got friends that treat their dogs like their kids so I know where ya'll are coming from, but in my mind that will never happen. My 2 yr old hasnt stepped outside since we got them cause they jump all over her. Ive been working on "training" them not to do that and it hasnt happened yet.
"What would Jesus do?" I cant answer that question but he may also look at it from a frugal stand point as well. They are wasting your money that could be used else where to further the teachings of His Word. $150 could print alot of gospel tracts, bibles etc. Help a missionary get to a foreign country, etc. These are dogs, not humans, they have no souls to save from hell.
