One time when I was walking Orson (Phoebe and Kevin weren't along with me for some reason) this guy yelled from across the street "Hey, nice dobie! Are you going to let HER have puppies" Before I could respond, his buddy said " because HE has a UNIT" and then MUCH laughing at his friend followed, LOL

Otherwise, no. Orson is pretty obviously MALE.......he doesn't have fur to hide his "unit" LOL, and Phoebe is petite from her paws to her nose, in her movements and actions and nobody has ever mistaken her for a boy

FWIW........I think Mia and Summer BOTH look very feminine

Both borzois get called "she". Poor Strider has hair hiding his junk, and kaia is going to grow up a lot more substantial than him, so he'll look girly in comparison to people who don't realize a giant mane = male. lol

Charlie...yeah. No question there. He's a man dog.

All FOUR of mine are boys.

Maybe it's because they are "weenie" dogs.

everyone says "he" when addressing my dogs, even after hearing their names (Abby, Daisy, Liz, Autumn, and Eerie?! Eerie I can understand...). Of course, Liz is about 42lbs to her daughter (Eer)'s 63; I always have Liz in hot pink and my boyfriend always has Eer in electric blue... so I can totally understand when I walk them together and people think I have the matching set

The Plotts:
UKC GRCH 'PR' Hannas Creek Liz
FCH CH CCH CA 'PR' Jebb's Bayou Rage

And the "off-colored" hounds:

Usually people just ask me whether lacey is male or female. It would be hard to tell because of the fur, except she's pretty feminine in the face and body structure.

But most get the hint when I say "Oh her name is Lacey"

Oddly enough, most people actually ask whether Gavroche is a boy or a girl. Some people will assume one way or the other, but I think out of those, most correctly assume boy.

On second though, maybe those that don't ask and guess right do so because he has no hair to hide anything. He is neutered, but he was an adult when he was neutered, so he doesn't have a midget penis by any means

Molly is usually thought to be a boy. Hailey is sometimes thought to be a boy and sometimes a girl. But Molly wears a blue collar and Hailey wears a black one. I like to confuse people (actually, I didn't like any of the "girly" options when picking out collars, lol).

we can't pretend we don't know what to do.
God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls,
knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act.

Riley keeps getting referred to as a girl - hopefully he'll grow out of it.

Murphy and Mick have never been mistaken for girls and surprisingly, Abbey has never been mistaken for a boy. I don't really think she looks that feminine...

With Morgan, people tend to insist that he's a she. I kid you not, the conversation often goes like this:

RANDOM PERSON: Aww, she's such a cute dog! What's her name?
ME: Actually, he's a boy. His name is Morgan.
RANDOM PERSON: ... Are you sure?

Yes, yes I'm sure.

I swear, I could dress him in 30 layers of blue, a pair of truck nuts, and a neon blinking sign that reads "I AM MALE" and people would still question his gender. Poor identity confused dog.
