I told him to put down my dog right now and if I caught him around my house again I was calling the cops I also told him she was microchipped in 2 different places and that I would be able to track her if he felt brave enough to take her. My girls later told me that he asked to take pictures of her and he did get pictures and then he picked her up and went to walk off. Later in the day I was in my car with the girls and he didnt see us there he came back with 2 girls and they stopped and were trying to look into my yard. To say the least I personally take her out and I don't leave her side now. It so sad people are so messed up that you cant even feel safe in your own yard.
    Oh my that's scary!! I don't blame you for not wanting to leave her side

    [QUOTE=elearn;242034]

    I have had terrible thoughts that people would take Herman mainly because every one stops their cars to say hi or tell me they have a bulldog (or in some cases ask me if he's dead when he's just lying limp on the ground and wont get up). QUOTE]

    LOL. Too funny.

    It really isn't anyone's business what you paid for anything or any pet, especially a stranger! I sell at antique shows and often people come back to pick up large pieces. I always take the price off and put a sold tag on the item. So many people still open doors/drawers and fondle it and ask how much it sold for. Instead of saying NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS I tactfully tell them a price of about 1/10th of the actual sale price and watch them turn green with envy!

    Now THAT is just scary!!!!

    I guess I'm lucky because I don't think anybody has ever asked what we paid for any of our bullies!! I can say with total honesty that Linus was a christmas gift and Daddy and Bella are both rescues ... that is if we keep Bella!!

    Depends on who it is and how they ask. If in general I feel that it is with legitimate interest in the breed I tell them that my researched show in our area they range from "x" to "y" and why they cost what they do (c-sections and high maintenance as young puppies) and then always warn them that if they were to find out outside of that range they should be very weary. I also carry cards from our local rescue and will give them one to ask questions or find out more. Like I said, my response varies depending on how it is asked. Sometimes my response is less that my car but more than a gallon of gas.

    If it's someone I don't know I will tell them they are not full blood and didn't cost that much and leave it at that. @sweetpeasmom2008 I think the next time you see that guy, take a pic of him and go the the police and tell them he tried to steel your bully and he has been hanging around your house and taking pic.

    people always ask me..and I usually throw out that we adopted her, she's spayed, and bulldogs are known for health problems, just to keep the risk of someone trying to take her down. I also have people just ask me for puppies all the time. As if my spayed dog will just pop some out.
