I get it all the time, often followed by "I gotta get me one of those!"
Which is weird, because both dogs are from rescues and are either mutts or horrible representations of their breed.

Fran is a liar liar pants on fire.
When average people ask me where I got Romeo, I tell them he was adopted.

Which, technically he was (he was a breeder re-home) but still. I lied to one person once really early on and she was like "I thought there were only big ugly dogs at the shelter! He is so sweet and cute! I think we will go take a look" and I saw her a few weeks later and she was so proud to show off her new little adopted dog.

ever since then.. I've just kept at it. I don't DIRECTLY say he is from the shelter, I just hint around it lol
Rome's breeder doesn't need the PR and shelter sure could use it. and I know if I just say "breeder" average joe will run off to a BYB soo.. I lie.

If dog people ask I will give the name/where she is state wise.

With aussie puppy I will just tell people the truth breeder wise but there is just something about chihuahuas and the CONCENTRATION of chihuahua BYBs and chis in the shelter that just made lying kind of feel..right.

Yes. About rosey and the ferrets.

The "are they expensive" question, I usually answer with "well, it costs me (insert amount here) to feed them each month, plus this and this and this..."

Yeah. Or close enough, anyway.

"IS THAT A WOLF?!"
"What kind of dog IS THAT?!"
"OMG HE IS SO PRETTYYY!"
"Where can I get one? He's so SWEET."

I generally tell them there are plenty in the shelter because people take those pretty dogs at face value and don't realize the demon within until it's too late.

I just say I got Izzie from someone who didn't want her anymore as a puppy. Which is the truth but I don't tell them I got her from the paper because I doubt the public's ability to filter ads.

For the dobes and Revy I usually just say "from a breeder in Illinois"

For Talla.... I get to say "from Mexico!" ...and then I get to talk about Mexidogs and why everyone should get one.

Ah, classic! I've had people actually argue with me that Scout MUST be a wolf. Also had people ask if she's a Terv. And one guy who scared her (he was creepy interested in her) was really skeezy in asking if she was purebred GSD.
