Default Sable German Shepherds are wolves?

Sable German Shepherd owners, do you ever get asked if your shepherd is a wolf or wolf hybrid?

I was at work yesterday (at a doggie daycare) there was a new shepherd that came who was sable in color and when the owner came to pick him up, the other owners waiting in line were all like is that a wolf?

One guy even said and I quote *removed by moderator* wolf?! Everyone stay back thats a vicious wild animal! You should get arrested for having that beast!". (Over reaction much)

Wow. I understand sables are wolfy in color, and shepherds are more wolf-like in appearance than some breeds but that's pathetic.
Then again, when Koda was a puppy, people always thought she was a wolf. I just never saw it.

You can't fix stupid

When Cheyenne was little, people often asked me if she was a wolf. Now that she is an adult, it's really only the little kids who ask me if she is.

And forget about my all black GSD...no one knows WHAT he is! lol

Its like if the shepherd isn't black/tan or red/tan thanpeople automatically assume its a wolf or a mix breed.

Thank you Rin Tin Tin

I didn't mention white because the white shepherds that come to my work always get misken for either huskies or malamutes, which I don't understand how as they look nothing alike
