Sadly, he's all healed up and without any merle now. lol But I suppose his brindle neck would get the same comment.

All. The. Time.
That and Rottie. At least he doesn't get mistaken for a dachshund anymore.

Schaffer's a collie mix.
GSD's aren't allowed to be fluffy. Ever.

And Kailey's part pittie 'cuz she has wonky shoulders. Or mixed with dalmatian because of her spotty nose. Or part lab because of her body color.
Frankly, she's my little mutt puppy and half of the suggestions people throw at me could be correct, but their reasoning is all wrong.

Dally gets called an Aussie ALL. THE. TIME.
I used to think it was people just getting the breed names confused (both Australian ______, I can see how the average person could get them confused) but then people would actually start saying "My friend/my parents/I have/I used to have an Aussie and they look just like each other!"

Uhh ... what?




Quinn always gets her breed mistaken which isn't surprising. The weirdest has been TWO beagle guesses? My mom got so offended lol. More commonly she's a Toller or a Border Collie, we got a lot of Sheltie, Collie and Aussie guesses when she was younger too.

LoLa is a Boxer according to 90% of the public. A gray natural eared Boxer with a tail.

Most people guess mine to be a pomeranian, chihuahua, cavalier or papillon these days. Mostly pom more than anything else lately. When I first got Summer, she was a chihuahua most the time. We've occasionally gotten sheltie, and then even shih tzu a couple times, and pekignese more than once.

Pretty much looks like a pekignese.

I get off the wall designer breed guesses too a lot. Usually chipoo?

I've gotten some weird breed guesses before, especially for Rory. The usual is Brittany Spaniel. He's also been called a Borzoi, Golden Retriever (a big WTF!), and an Aussie.

Someone asked me if Chloe was a "Husky puppy"- apparently any dog with blue eyes has to be a Husky!

Tucker's been called a Yorkie- any blue and tan dog small furry dog is a Yorkie.

Emma's gotten Pomeranian, Papillon, "teacup" Chihuahua... usually "teacup" is the hardest to argue against.

I don't think Rylie has been called anything other than a Chihuahua before... but she's gotten "teacup" many times.

And the funniest is when we're walking the Chihuahuas together... people will ask "are they a family?!" People don't seem to understand that you can have multiple dogs without having bred them.

Dance gets a lot of "red nosed pit bull" guesses. Yep. Long coat and all. And if it's not that, people tend to either think she's a designer breed or an Aussie. Or a puppy. Everyone thinks she's a puppy and therefore want to be all up in her face and let their dog in her space so she gets used to other dogs (and Dance does not appreciate strange dogs in her space, or people for that matter). Oh, people...

At least the Dobermans don't get anything too weird regularly. Just the usual Greyhound, Great Dane or Rottweiler. The funniest was when I had both out together and somebody correctly identified Keira but was certain Ripley was a chocolate Lab. Mostly with them I just get comments on how little they are though.
