has anyone ever said something like this to you
 
I was walking my dog down a trail and there was this lady that was kinda being harassed by a baby mutt. She had two pugs and they were all wrestling. Anyways when she saw my sable shepherd. She said "oh great here comes a rottie. My dog was so close to her its a pure shepherd also.

I couldn't stop laughing that she thought my dog was a rottie. Has ayone ever thought something that far off or made such a silly comment? I asked the other lady again if what i heard was for real she said yes she thought my dog was a rottie and she thought my dog was going to gang up on hers with the baby mutt. I guess her dog had a bad experience with a rottie so when she saw another rottie comming (my dog) she kinda went into a panic and thought that my dog and the baby mutt might take her pugs out and eat them.

This woman was brought up in this country and was an adult.

I've had people ask me if my Cattle Dog was a German Shepherd

How do you know she was brought up in this country? Do you know her? Did you ask her?
Not sure what her nationality or age has to do with the rest of your post.

children might not know what a shepherd is or what a rottie really is.

nationality well people from another country also might not be totally sure what a rottie or a shepherd is. I am not sure if they exist in every single country or not. Like I don't think everyone here would know what a Pariah dog sp? dog is but it is a common site in india. Or a new guinea singing dog.


you could tell by the way she talked her accent etc.. It doesnt take a scientist to figure it out.

I wondering since she thinks Rottis' are GSDs if the dog that hassled her Pug in the past was actually a GSD :).

I've been told that Koda is a husky, a wolf, a smooth collie, a malinois, a beagle mix, etc

her pugs were really just having a lot of fun playing with that mutt and she was telling the mutt owner that the mutt was trying to hump them or something lol And then when we walked by i recognized the owner of the small mutt. Then she made the comment and started to text her friend lol She didnt make any effort to collect her dogs or leave she just started texting friends and smoking.

yes she was doing that at the sametime and NO she was not watching her dogs at that time. lol it was just strange.


There have been people or kids that have called mine a wolf coyote or jackal also lol but she at least does kinda look like those but the whole rottie thing was just 2 funny.

ITs like me going up to a poodle and saying i dont trust great danes.


The beagle mix is funny one also.

I've known dog breeds since I was about 10 and know many many adults at this point who would struggle to name 5 different breeds.

Accents don't give that much away - unless your a linguistics expert.

AND HOLY RUDE BOLD.

this is why I've always preferred animals to people.

Lol yeah, I think the beagle mix was the most hilarious.

A man at the dog park was watching Koda play with a white shepherd and was like, "You have a nice beagle mix there," to me. I laughed and told him she's a shepherd. He shook his head and insisted, "No. That white one is a shepherd. See your dog's saddle? That's from being a beagle mix. Don't worry though. She's still a cute dog." I just laughed again and started playing fetch with both of them. :rolleyes:

^^ very possible. I didnt think I would ever come across someone who didnt know what a GSD looked like (especially in relation to a Rottie) but hey, mistakes happen
