Yep! Lady is black so she's obviously a lab. We went to lowes last night and I got asked if she was a service dog, I said "no, she's my guard dog". Then her ears went back, tail wagging...hard to keep a straight face with that lie!!

With Riley people would ask what type of dog he was. I think because he was mostly black with tan feet and a bit of tan on his cheeks.

Nobody has ever asked me what type of dog Kaleb is or if he's mixed.

I've never been asked if my female is a mixed breed. She is a WGWL stock coat black & tan.

I believe the question comes up more often for sables and black GSD's and for coaties.

A B&T is the generally accepted look for a GSD by the ignorant public. I doubt you would ever be asked.

Oh I've had more than one person ask me what kind of dog Carly is. She's a black and tan, stock coated dog. I'm not sure what the confusion is, lol.

I used to get that with Reba, because she was a stock-coated sable (very short, tight coat). I would tell people she was a German Shepherd, and they would typically go "...mixed with what?" and I would say "...Another German Shepherd."
People around here aren't accustomed to seeing sables, I guess. The only other person I know in the immediate area with GSDs, at the time, had solid blacks and bicolor dogs. I don't even think I've seen other black and red dogs while I was out and about. But people never mistake Discoe for anything other than a German Shepherd.
