Do you get asked if your dog is a mixed breed?
 
Every time Lola (a WGSL long coat) and I go out I always get asked if she's a mixed breed. I'm assuming it's because she's a long coat. Curious on how many others get asked if their dog is a mixed breed?

My first dog a WGSL long coat was called a Belgian Shepherd by a vet no less :rolleyes:

I don't get asked because my GSD has a short coat. But I do know other people with long haired GSDs who get asked if their dog is mixed breed or even another type of dog.

Yes! Some people would ask if Harley and Varick were mixed. I think it's because Varick is a dark sable, (there aren't many sables around here) and Harley has a wide bitch stripe. It's kind of silly to me, how people think that. :)

It doesn't even take a long coat. Cafall is a sable and immediately is constantly mistaken for mix of some sort.

Had a vet ask what percentage of coyote Cafall was. :wild:
Needless to say we didn't got back there...

Lol, don't blame you on that one! I had to tell my vet she's a long coat cause she's "fluffy" but they are otherwise knowledgeable

No. They usually ask if 'that' (Lisl) is a police dog. Or po-leece dog depending upon who is doing the asking.

Usually young children ask if mine are police dogs too. Media. :rolleyes:

Yep, all the time. It's because Chrono is all black so I get ask if he's a lab mix a lot(yeah, because labs are the only black dogs out there :rolleyes:), or I get great dane mix because he's tall, as though it's at all likely for a dog to only inherit its parents height and absolutely no other feature :rolleyes:.

I do get quite a few people who know he's a black german shepherd though, and it always surprises me.
