Default Strangers trying to buy your dog?

Does that happen to anyone else? Quite often, strangers on the street stop and offer my money to take Hunny from me. When he was a puppy, I figured they thought he was part of a litter. Now that he's older, dressed in clothing and whatnot, it still happens! He's clearly my dog and happy with me. Who would ever sell their best friend or family member?! A lady the other day offered me $500, and actually had the nerve to look at me like I was crazy when I replied, "he'll no!", Then laughed because I thought SHE was the crazy one first.

Yes this has happened to me a few times with my smaller dog.
I just tend to laugh it off, take it as a compliment you clearly have something they desire!

I do. Hunny is a great looking and well behaved dog. I just think its crazy that anyone would think I'd(or any dog owner) give him up like that.

Any of you who have ever raised a teenager might be willing to make a kid-for-dog exchange offer. Simcha is 100% enthusiastically grateful for absolutely anything we do for him, and he shows it! Teenager? That's a whole 'nuther story.

That has never happened to me yet, but I have not taken Ike for a walk, as he doesn't have his third set of shots. I would not sell my dog to anyone. That is funny.

This happened a lot when Skynyrd was a puppy, now that he's grown no one seems to care lol. Now that I think about it, it might be because I tend to walk him and my big girl Roxy at the same time. No one has ever randomly come up when I have her with me, she looks intimidating but is a total mush.

Has not happened to me here yet in Sweden. Maybe people have better manners here, lol. I can't believe anyone would ask that!
