**** Zu. No, no, no, no, no.

And it irks the ever living snot out of me that our "breed" labeling that we use at work doesn't have an option for American Pit Bull Terrier. It is just pit bull. Not even Pit Bull Terrier. pit bull. UGH.

Cane Corso I would say 90 % of the time is pronounced incorrectly. Most people get Rottweilers fine here now.

The first word "CANE" is pronounced as you would read the following letters "KAH-NAYE" and not like "Sugar Cane". The second word is pronounced as it is read "Kor-so"

And I agree that someone breeding the breed and not being able to pronounce the name correctly is just disheartening.

That is good to know. I'll still sound dumb saying it though

I said Mal-In-Oi for agesssss... *hides in corner*
Daschund is another one I got wrong for ages longer than I should have.

Boerbels, Griffon Bruxellois and Bouvier Des Flandres I avoid saying in public, anyone care to educate me?

I'm proud of being able to pronounce Xoloitzcuintle even if I have to google it to spell it. I havn't got a chance to pull that one out in public yet to show off.
