A lot of people seem to get thrown off because he's so dark and because he's a long coat... I've been getting asked more and more if he's a Belgian Shepherd.
One lady thought he was a Rottweiler mix, really??
I had a very old gentleman approach me in a store and say "German, right?" When I figured out he was talking about Rocket I said yes. He then said "I was in WWII. I haven't seen one like that since then when I was there. He's beautiful" then proceeded to pet him a bit. It touched me, even if they're not as uncommon as he thought.
