Dog Sharing

There's ride sharing and bike sharing, so why not dog sharing? A new service called City Dog Share lets you swap dogs with complete strangers, or "test out" a dog to see if it's the right pet for you:

[City Dog Share] allows dog-shoppers to try a pet on for size without the burden of commitment, by giving them a chance to spend quality time with other peoples' pooches. The Facebook-based service also fills schnauzer-shaped gaps in the lives of humans whose apartments or schedules prohibit full-time furry friends.

And supporters also believe City Dog Share can help shelters and rescue groups find homes for abandoned animals by giving prospective puppy parents the comfort of a free backup care plan if they fear the responsibility that comes with any animal.

In a nation where social media aficionados share homes, cars and futures with total strangers encountered online, why shouldn't they swap dogs that way too?
