My dog would not be for sale.

My last dog was a pound puppy and I was out walking her and some guy asked me how much I paid for her. I told him! 60 from the pound (1999) He said she's worth at least 200! That was a running joke around my house when she was bad that I could always get 200 for her.

I've only had my puppy for a few months and I am already beyond emotionally attached to him. I am just a 21 year old who lives on my own and he goes and does EVERYTHING with me. He is my partner in life. I have no kids so he's like a child to me. He is my best buddy. I can do anything right or wrong and he still will be the happiest little guy. I can talk to him and tell him anything on rough days and he completely understands how I feel and can make me smile. For that I'd say he is irreplaceable and is worth more than money to me.

My dogs are not for sale for any price to anyone. I can't put a dollar amount on unconditional love and companionship they give me. But we do have the running joke around here about my rescue Flat Coat, that if she gets to be too much, I'll just send her back for a refund. LOL But seriously, money couldn't buy her. My pups mean the world to me.

That's good for everyone if people deeply thinking about it. I always believed that our pets is the member of our family. I really like your review about puppies.

There were moments in class today, when I might have said, "Make an offer."

He wasn't that bad, really. He was calm and did not try to bark at or eat any of the other dogs. He will be two in April, so still a youngster. And the place was very noisy with young dogs barking, growling, and lunging at each other. I guess the way to describe his doofus behavior is that he was totally distracted. He had to pee on every blade of glass outside, and he wanted to follow every little kid in there.

So, in moments like these, make me an offer, LOL!

Both my breeder and rescue dogs hold the same value in my heart. It's not related to money. I have never nor ever would give one of my dogs up. Simple as that.

I understand what a dog needs from a human. I will never understand a human treating a dog as a commodity or expendable thing. What they offer has nothing to do with monetary value or self gratification to some trivial accomplishment. They are not tools or toys.

When you reach the end of your life, you will not remember dollars or small accomplishments. Unconditional love that was shared and the happiness that it brought you will be on your mind.....

There is no way I would put a price tag on my dog. I have a 5 month old GSD pup. Within past 3 months he has already become our family member and I simply cannot imagine selling him. In case there comes a time in my life when I cannot provide him what he needs to be happy then I will find a good/responsible home for him and would not ask for any money.

I have threatened any number of times to sell them and buy beer.

That said, I turned down a blank cheque for Sabi. I was told to name my price, and he had the money. Never regretted it for a second.
