It happened to me once when I was walking Toby around a local park. This lady with two small children asked me if she could buy Toby because he kids liked him. I literally laughed, I just didn't know how to react. She offered me $1000 dollars. I was flattered that they loved him that much, but absolutely not. LOL.

She was obviously wealthy, she could go out and buy her own dog based on her clothes, car, etc. Why mine?

Because he's such a well-behaved, sweet little guy!

No one has offered to purchase Ode, but tons of people have asked if she's available for breeding, to which I reply "no you pervert! stop checking out my dog!". Haha no, I just say she's spayed.

He says thanks! Lol. He wasn't so behaved back then! He was a puppy, and we were working on training.

I get allot of people wanting to buy Charlie. When I say no they want to know where I got him and if I have the phone number of the breeder. I usually just say sorry I don't have the phone number look on line there are always lots of Chihuahua for sale. Then I walk away I try not to be impolite I don't what them following me and stealing my dog or something.

That is just funny, I never heard of people even do that.

It takes me forever to walk Star because people want to stop, pet her, even take a picture and ask questions about her or about my kids. Some people would say "OH! You're a friendly chihuahua!!!" Maybe they don't ask because my kids are around and they care that my kids would be devastated? LOL

I'm more nervous someone would try to steal my Winnie, I live outside of Seattle, Wa and people will break into cars to steal what they see as $$$$$$
I don't ever leave her alone in the car, even though chances are one in a million I'm not willing to take it

No one has ever asked to buy Daisy, but we had a psycho lady wanting to steal D once. She was holding her and saying 'if I was allowed a dog in my flat, I'd be running away right now'. And she was so serious
