Default The "mistakes" regarding your dogs breed thread

This is kind of inspired by the discussion over at the venting bread about those of us who have had their dogs breed mistaken or worse ... When people argue WITH you about your dogs breed.

I want to hear your vents/rants & / or funny stories about what your dogs have been mistaken as xD.

Me: Bear has been mistaken as a: chihuahua, a pit bull puppy (he was 4 years old at the time!) & a bull terrier.

Izze: a Border collie, Australian shepherd, & German shepherd.

Josefina: a coyote / wolf hybrid

Well I don't have breeds but people really, REALLY want to know what Pip is. If I offer my opinion, they argue with me. If I say I don't know, they argue with me. The only thing people DON'T argue with is if I call him a long-haired pit bull, which is totally made up. Go figure.

Nobody hardly ever asks or cares about Maisy. Black and brindle/tan dogs are apparently either invisible or terrifying to strangers. If anyone asks and I say "hound mix," nobody ever argues about it so maybe it's just that obvious.

Squash... lol. Hardly anyone in the city even KNOWS what an Alaskan is, and nobody ever believes me if I say he's a husky mix. ONE time at a skijor race someone asked and I said "Believe it or not, he's an Alaskan mix" and the guy said "Oh, yea, you can totally see that in his face!" Otherwise, nada... in fact, in a different skijor race we did they would announce your name, where you lived, and your dog's name and breed as you were coming down to the finish line. And ours went something like this: " Number X, Sass from Minnesota with Squash, a 2 year old.... *very very long, very pregnant pause* ... hus... ky mix." I laughed until I peed.

My boss has a "renaissance bull dog" or something like that. She's hairy and bulldoggy, but not built like Pip. I shall start calling her a hairy pitbull and see what her owner thinks!

I actually only started using it after I was walking him one day and a we came around a corner and startled a dude who said, WHOA, IT'S A LONG HAIRED PIT BULL as he was backing away in apparent horror.

At a weight pull, I was getting this dog out of the back of my truck, turned around with her tucked under one arm, and some guy passing by said "Oh, a Rottweiler!"
That is the cutest face ever.
