    Yer, Im in the same position and been wondering the same thing. Everyone selling/gifting dogs wants to know its going to a family with 2.5 kids and a white picket fence. What lies have worked for all you dog owners out there?

    I adopted my dog, not from a shelter, but from a delightful woman who just couldn't handle him anymore. Prior to adopting him I visited endless shelters and spoke with many people online. Every person I spoke with was dying to give their dog to me, but i was really just searching for the right mutt. I told them the truth. If you're always on the road the dog ends up with a highly active lifestyle but also with an owner who gives a shit about them. When road kids get dogs its not like getting a pet, Its like getting a new bestfriend. We're with our dogs at ALL hours of the day, and only part with them to buy groceries and shit like that. Anyone looking to give a dog out is trying to find the best possible environment for that dog, and i think a lot of people know that the typical suburban family isnt gonna give as much love to the pup as a person who wants it as a traveling companion. Bottom line is showing them how much you would care for the animal and explaining how much outdoor time they're gonna have. Doesnt every dog dream of being a road dog?

    I bout a pitbull once for $12 (or was it $8?) from a guy by the tracks in Bako. Put the pup on a loaded boxcar for Colton, flew a sign with her for a couple of days before selling her for $25 to a couple kids heading to the east coast with their pit.

    (Now before anybody bashes me, I rescued that dog from Bakersfield, fair enough?)

    I was gifted a puppy once from a girl in tears at RV Walmart who couldn't keep her. Her attempts to sell her pup were unsuccessful. I gave her to an StP member who really wanted her. Mine for about 5 minutes.

    I once dound a 12# older dog who appeared to not have a home (she was thirsty as all heck, but wasn't hungry). I told myself that I would give her to the first person who showed interest. When I went out dumpstering for cans a guy approached me and I asked him if he wanted her. He said, "my family has been looking for a dog like this for a long time." Mine for about 45 minutes.

    I'm not trying to say that dogs are a dime a dozen, but they are kind of all over if you keep your eyes peeled.

    Craigslist! Or go to the south where there's plenty of half wild strays running around. That's where I found mine... in Missouri. She was terrified of people but let us pick her up and bring her with us. She's acclimated surprisingly well, must have been abused/abandoned.

    I got my pup from a homebum juggalo in Corpus Christi. He was feeding her hotdogs and offered to sell her to me. I had $7 left to my name. He said "that's food" and gave me the pup. A month later I got rid of her fleas and worms. Assuming she's 9wks, I've already taught her to sit, shake, and lay. She doesn't mind trains at all, and even barks at homebums.

    Go to the Navajo reservation, with pockets full of bacon. Walk around Kayenta or Tuba city or Gallup for a couple hours. You will have the pick of the litter.....or pack for that matter ;) whats up with the lack of a dog emoji?!::cat::::chicken::::alien::
