I would just keep leting him or her be as friendly as can be that is a good quality in a dog. But keep close eye on ur pet's & don't let him or her roam around with out you.

If you let the dog roam without you he will make friends and get used to other peoples smells. I'd keep him closer to me - maybe take him outside on a leash instead of letting him go out on his own.

This is where teaching simple commands come in handy. Teach your dog the basics such as sit, stay, come, heel. And never, ever let your dog run loose un supervised. Not just for the fact of him leaving with a stranger but for his health all around. Socializing is so very important and you want him to be friendly, but by teaching him the basics he will know to listen to you.
