this always happens to me! some people are so rude about it too, once when i was walking liam (my little black n white male) someone asked me how much i wanted for him n i said he isnt for sale, and they kept going on and on and i was like he is priceless. and the man was like "EVERYTHING HAS A PRICE!!" and actually got an attitude with me. i couldnt belieave it.

There are a lot of dogs stolen in my area. Especially smaller breeds like chi, pugs, Boston terriers, yorkies, etc. If someone came up to me like that it would strike me as odd unless they asked for breeder reference.

Ive had that with both Maisie and Shelby (though not Pippi)... Ive been offered thousands for both of them on different occasions, and even been threatened when I refused to sell Maisie to some guy with a staffy who'd clearly been used for breeding (and recently, the poor dogs teats were almost on the ground)... he wanted her because "she'd make pretty puppys! They'd sell for a fortune!"

Thankfully A friend of mine came into the field at that point with her pack of 6 rottweilers and came over to me to check I was ok, and the guy backed off. (I actually had my phone in my hand dialing her number at the time to ask her to come down with them since she only lives a few mins away!) Ive had too many close calls with my girls - I dont think there are many people round my area who actually walk their chis or other small breeds because of people like him. I dont walk my dogs anywhere near there now!

I haven't taken Teddy out yet but I do worry about someone stealing him as strangely as I was looking for a puppy I would always see ads for stolen chi's and bulldogs even though its unlikely you just never know! People see these dogs such as chi's, bulldogs, pugs etc and see pound signs!

My dogs are never out if my sight or I'd be concerned with them getting stolen also. I hadn't even really considered it before. I couldn't imagine how devastated I'd be. There are so many Chis in shelters, its insane to imagine someone trying to buy someone else's it steal one. I know it does happen a lot though.

You guys had some funny stories. I swear these dogs are psycho magnets. Sometimes I wish I had a pitbull!

It hasn't happened to me but I often get people asking me where I got her from and how I payed. I find it quite rude. The other thing I get a lot is people picking her up without asking first if it's ok. I mean, they probably wouldn't do that to a kid or a bigger dog.
