Default What Would You Do If ?

what would you do if someone offered to buy your pet from you for a million dollars ? would you sell them ? even if it wasnt a million dollars , but enough money to get you out of a severe financial crisis or get you out from under a huge debt would you consider doing it ?

i have in the past worked 3 jobs to keep a roof over my family's head and food and clothes on the table and our backs. never once did the thought of selling or even re homing any of my animals come into my mind. we have a huge amount of debt right now and we do our best to keep afloat. the htought of selling my animals to someone just so i can pay off this debt is a disturbing idea to me. my animals make my home a place i want to come home to. no amount of money in this world could ever take their place.

have been offered moeny for Bronki more than once..and Victor is starting to turn heads as well..not for any sum for any reason would i part with my canine friend.
I did that one time..not for money but because i was in a bad place and thought someone else could give my dog a better life..i was young and didn't understand that the bond between us was more important than any farmlife..in the world. IF i could go back and undo one thing in my past..that would be it.

No way. Not just because I'm selfish and want to keep them all with me (don't get me wrong--I am!) but because there's something wrong with someone who would pay a million dollars to get one of my dogs. What are they planning on doing to him? Not love him and snuggle him, that's for sure. Put him in fights, maybe? Eat him?

There isn't enough money in the world to make me stop caring about what happens to a dog after they leave my care. They're my family, and they rely on me to choose what's best for them.

Never ever not once in my line of business at races and such i am constantly get money offered for one dog or anouther or even at times a full team but i always turn them down. To them they see money on legs to me I see not only winners but bestfriends and family im not willing to give up. Money can be a problem but I never even consider selling one of my dogs.

I probally would have sold my corgi for a ton when she was younger. If someone would have shown her it would have been great for her because she was born for it,but for any other reason no. And she is a little too old now so shes stuck with me!

I would nevcer give my dobe up. Hes only five and I'm already dreading him dying
