Chihuahua for Gavroche (boxer).

Probably Great Dane for Logan (smooth collie).

I was at Woofstock last weekend and was told by the lady at the local dog training club booth "There aren't just purebreds in the club, there are a lot of mixes, so you would feel at home with your dog." Um, WAT? Sorry, Logan IS purebred. And being head of a dog-related club, you really ought to know that - or at least not ASSUME my pure-bred, well-bred, AKC and UKC pointed collie is a mix.

Gavroche usually gets called a pitbull and Logan usually gets called a GSD. If they ASK, I'll educate them. If the just walk by and tell whoever they're with what breed my dog is, I just laugh to myself and call them stupid in my head at this point If they're standing RIGHT NEXT TO ME when they do this, I say "Nope, he's a collie" or "Nope, he's a boxer" and walk away.

I kind of agree. On one hand, it's important to try to educate that not every bulldog is a "pit bull," but on the other hand, they are very closely related, and APBTs differ so much in appearance, I would actually be shocked if someone random could tell the difference between staffies and APBTs. I only can because I've made it a point to examine the differences, and even then I'm sometimes wrong. Then you get into the part that APBTs can be dual registered and it gets even murkier.

Chihuahua/husky for Zuma. No joke.

I get a lot of guesses but the strangest ones were when somebody was looking at Ripley and Keira side by side, knew that Keira was a Doberman, but thought Ripley was a chocolate Lab. And Dance has had "red nosed Pit Bull" a few times now. Somebody recently also thought she was a Papillon, haha.

Other than that, other guesses are fairly typical of what one would expect. :-)

People are always guessing Chase is a german short-haired pointer. I can see it, kind of due to the color, but he's a merle not a roan, and he's way too small and fluffy.

Holy crap! I don't think I've ever seen a picture of your dog outside of your avatar. Holy adorableness batman!

This may be a dumb question, but what is he?

He looks very Aussie in your avatar but the whole body makes him look almost sport breedish?

Pretty!!! - Merle Cocker?

And how does someone confuse a ferret with a dog? Or a Collie with a German Shepherd?

I don't think I've ever gotten any really ridiculous guesses. I get a lot of "what.... IS that?" way more than actual guesses.

Squash is the one people usually guess at... usually pit, American bulldog, or Dogo. None of which are totally outrageous, I guess, although he's a bit tall for a pit mix.

Sienna is a fox, according to most children. The other day someone guessed Toller/Pom mix. I guess I can kinda see that, but she's not really the same color or build as a Toller.

The people calling Corgis, Yorkies - they HAVE to be just mispronouncing it, no??

He's a cocker spaniel (dad)/springer spaniel (mom) mix. Here are two threads with his pics. I have some more recent ones, but I've been too lazy to post.
