Just what the title says. :)

I think Nola looks very girly and feminine. She's very muscular and strong looking, but there's a fineness to her features that screams female. She also has a very dainty, foxy head and large, soft eyes. Even though she's almost always decked out in blue, 98% of the time people correctly call her a girl.

Feist gets called a boy... Oh 100 percent of the time unless they hear me say she, In which case of course that makes it hard (but not impossible). One would think it would be hard regardless since she's always wearing pink, but I guess she has a boyish look? Idk, she seems girly to me, but the public says otherwise.

Oh and Wesley poor Wesley = girl. Forever.

Yes, IMO, all my girls look like girls. Nobody has ever called Mackenzy a boy because she's a spaniel-type dog who looks Lady from Lady in the Trap to a lot of people. They always default to girl.

Keeva and Blossom, if you know their respective breeds, are distinctly recognizable as bitches by their proportions and expressions.

ETA: Here is a cool picture of Blossom and her male littermate, Aleron's Roust, side by side. Bet you can tell who's male and female without peeking!

Everyone keeps calling Fiona a boy...I think she looks like a girl, but maybe not :).

Skye gets 50/50, I've had her in leather for a while and she gets called a boy sometimes. If she is in girly collars she does get called a girl. Zoie people don't usually mistake, she is kind of refined and has a slim head, kind of girly.

Romeo no one mistakes, he is kind of husky right now and is definitely boyish! :)

Kiba and Charlie look like girls. Lincoln and Stryder look like boys, but they are the ones that people question the most.

If anyone mistook Bailey for a boy, I'm not sure what I'd say. She is literally the feminine and refined version of her dad. It suits her better than it suited him.

People usually ask which Buzz is. If they voice a guess, it's typically male.

Gabby has always gotten girl so far!

Pretty much everyone guesses Jackson is a boy without asking. I think he kind of has a 'manly' way about him, plus I keep his hair so short.

I think so. And people do generally get it right, so I'd say yes.

In this, I think you can see the feminine vs. masculine. Obviously, Staffords are a relatively blocky breed, so even a bitch isn't that dainty looking, but you can definitely see the difference.

Well, what I think and what other people think are two different things LOL.
I think Auggie looks like a boy, but he is fine-boned. I think people mistake him for a girl because he's small and also pretty.




Payton I think is a very nice doggy, handsome boy. But he's also very pretty so sometimes people think he's a girl too. If he's out with Auggie, people think Auggie is the "mommy" and Pay the "daddy."


Pepper, OTOH, I think looks quite bitchy. But because she is a dark color, that apparently means she is a boy. =P




Georgie is VERY bitchy looking, she's also small and fine-boned - so far the only confusion over her gender is when they know she's named Georgie.

Jasper gets called a girl nearly all the time. Probably because he looks almost exactly like "Lassie", but also just the long hair and dainty head probably seem quite feminine to most people.

Yarrow is quite masculine I think, being black helps (seems like people often think black dogs are boys?) but he also has a pretty broad masculine head and he's huge, too.

Onyx, I dunno, I think she is pretty feminine. She's very slight and quite dainty. I haven't really had anyone mistake her for a boy, or particularly call her a girl, maybe because they are always too busy asking what breed she is.

Zobby looks like a boy to me:


I think Elsie's more fem than masculine, but she isn't the most bitchy looking terv I've seen.


Terv people always know, but in public she's a boy most of the time.

I think Journey exudes girl. She's so feminine and just really girly looking to me. I think most dog people would agree. The general public, though? She's black, she usually wears non-girly colours (teal is my favourite for her), she must be a boy haha. It's about 50/50 whether people guess her to be male or female.

Keira screams girly girl. She's so petite and feminine, and it's blatantly obvious when Ripley and Keira are together who the boy and who the girl is. Sometimes people will confuse them both for the opposite gender, but more often than not, people guess them right.

Dance I think is pretty girly looking too. Not as obvious maybe as Journey or Keira to a lot of people, but she looks plenty feminine to me. And most people guess her right, probably just because she's little and fuzzy with a pink nose lol.

Mimi ALWAYS gets 'girl'. Ezra gets 'girl' from non-sighthound people because Whippets are pretty... though he's pretty obviously male by size alone to people familiar with Whippets.
