Our 4 year old Roomba is no longer functional. We want another one! What model should we get, and where should we buy it?

We have a dog
who sheds a lot, and the only problem we had with the model we previously had,560, was that it needed to be cleaned 1-2 times while it was in the middle of cleaning a room (we don't use it that often; the dog HATES it).
So, we are leaning toward getting the 564 Pet Series
. Does anyone have any experience with whether this model actually works better on pet hair than the regular model?
Ideally, we would just buy the Pet Series model from a retailer with an excellent return policy (in case it doesn't work as claimed on pet hair). Bed Bath & Beyond would take it back for that reason, and they sell Roombas, but not the pet series model. From my reading of the Amazon return policy, Amazon won't take back an item unless it's within 30 days plus in new condition. So - any suggestions on where to buy a Roomba? What would you do?
