Not with our Chi, but we were fostering a Mini Australian Shepherd (who already had a very good home lined up) and people were always trying to buy her. Litterally every other walk, sometimes more, there were people trying to buy her. We didn't want to sell her, we just wanted a good home for her. And if someone is willing to take away (what looks like) a pet from a family, offering so much money, and being all freaky, it just doesn't seem like a good home, it seems to me like a person with too much money who buys on an impulse and may not realize exactly how much work a puppy can be.

It can be cool at first, but after a while it's just like PLEASE just leave us alone!

Omg!!!! That happened to me when Otis was just 8 weeks old. I was in Petsmart and this lady with a little about 4 or 5 said Mommy I want that dog!!! I just went about my business and the lady started following me and said excuse me miss can my little hold your puppy I said no but she could pet him. The little girl went hysterical saying I want Beverly Hills Chi Mommy. The lady said I will give you $500.00 cash right now for him. I said no thank you and she continued to follow me through the store so I felt uncomfortable and headed outside. They followed me to the parking lot and the lady said if I could wait she would go to the ATM and she would give me $800.00 cash. I told he I am sorry that my puppy was not for sale for any amount. I got in my car and left I was a nervous wreck think she might try to follow me. I got home I called Petsmart and told them about the lady and they said if that should ever happen again ask for the Manager as she had no right to follow me through the store!!!! Crazy !!!! I never realized how much attention these little guys attract. I had this one lady ask me if she could take pictures with him??? I am over protective of him now

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!
That is scary! Thank god for friends with a pack of 6 rottweilers, lol!
I'd make a police report in case something happened. It may sound like going overboard, but in my experience, every time something like that happens where you feel super uncomfortable or threatened, you want to make one.

Jmanderson675, I've gotten a ton of negative comments from taking my Cocker puppy into the store. I never put her down or let people touch her or anything, but three or four women gave me snide remarks, saying I was going to kill her or make her sick.
Strangers can be so crazy!

Omg! My biggest pet peeves! I swear, my little one is almost always in my purse or my coat in public, and people reach right in with no warning all the time! I mean, your an inch from grabbing my breast, you creepy old fat dude! My purse REALLY bothers me. I CAN take her out if you'd like to pet her. :-/ I can't think of a single moment where its ok to reach into a lady's purse without permission first. Throw a dog in there and no one will think twice. Really puts me on edge.

Default Strangers trying to buy your dog?

And again, just last week, some guy asked I'd I was looking to sell Hunny. Do people really let of of dogs that easy? I'd assume if they would, they wouldn't be out and about with them and clearly well taken care of.
