Gambit gets wolfdog a lot. Also aussie, catahoula, shepard, collie, and husky. Then there's the perrenial favorite 'what the heck is that?'
Ask a trucker, though, and 90% of them peg him straight off.
Argon was usually pretty easy, though people always tried to convince me there was nobassett in him. Dude, I saw him at 4 weeks old nursing from his mother the pure bassett hound. I know it doesn't show in him, but don't tell me you know him better then I do

Do you have a pic of said dog? I am curious to see him/her.

Meg gets greyhound a lot, which is pretty funny. I think the brindle throws people. They either want to say pitbull but don't want to sound insulting, or they really just think greyhounds are the only brindle breed. She's had one person ever correctly ID her as a Mountain Cur. Even dog people just stare at me like I'm making it up when I say it.

Gusto gets a lot of Boston Terrier, which is fair enough I think. Mostly just "What is he?!". Border collie/something is my usual answer.

Lol some "non extreme" dog people are funny like I said its all cool if the person admits their mistake, I mean an honest mistake is an honest mistake. It's cool no problem, the issue arises when someone is "sure" they "know" what breed my dog is ... Uh ... Better then me??? I don't think so.

I have actually had people freak out because they are "sure" Josefina is a coydog & she is going to "go crazy" & kill me in my sleep . Yeah ... Ok ... I will be sure to be on the look out for that.

On a slightly elated note: does anyone have any stories regarding hilarious, outlandish training advice by the "general public"?

A few people have thought Jackson was a Westie. I think it's the haircut, and obviously he's a small terrier, and light-ish colored. So I feel like it's not too far off. There was one time where someone insisted he was .... something, and for the life of me, I can't remember now what breed, but I remember it was really off the wall and I had a face?

Almost everyone insists there's no way he's a yorkie though. He's just "too big".

When I had puppy Penny, I had two people argue with me that a Vizsla is a made up breed& I should go back to the breeder to get my money back. I was actually shocked that people would be so bold as to argue with me when they don't know ..

I've gotten pitbull, lab, dachshund, lab, Weim. Some people can tell she's a hunting kind of dog but don't know what kind shah
It's wonderful to be a human in a Vizsla world!

Zuma has gotten a lot of guesses, my favorite being husky/chihuahua. Because blue eyes and big ears.

Zinga doesn't get guesses, she gets "what.. What is she?". I always thought she'd get mistaken for a smooth coat border, but she never does.
