Re: what kind of dog do people think your GSD is?
I once had a little kid ask if my shepherds were pitbulls. Yes I laughed. A couple months ago, some kid about 8 told his friend as we passed them that Morgan was a husky. I told him she's a german shepherd but he was very insistent that she's a husky.
You can't get a more traditional classic look than Morgan so I just laugh when it's little kids. Never had an adult ask me what she is, they usually just tell me she's gorgeous.
Luther, now he was often accused by adults of being a rott-n-shepherd. He had the dots and was built like a bread truck. DDRs, they look different.
Otto usually gets 'german shepherd, right?' He's a DDR too, very dark saddle back and a reverse mask, that old world look which seems to make people wonder what else he could possibly be but they can't fathom a guess and don't want to be rude. I smile and say yes, he's east german.
