how old is she??

how many of u have people mistake your dog for a male/female?? i swear my boy is always being called she. besides haveing the 2 walnuts hanging between his legs and a penis, people still call him she. i think its because he's the same size as an adult female at 9 months but im not sure. any one else besides me get this??

Never had anyone mistake our boys for girls, but have had people mistake a couple of our girls, Kali and Raven, for boys.

Re: how old is she??

KC is frequently mistaken for a male but neither Chimo nor Phoenix were ever mistaken for a female. I was told NUMEROUS times that Phoenix (solid black) was a Lab or Lab mix and when I told them he was a German Shepherd they told me I was "duped because they don't come in black".

Chance is always being called a she. Some people are nice enough to ask instead of going "What a beautiful girl you have!" or something like that but yeah. XD Even my grandma calls poor Chance a she half the time. At least it's not as bad as when she called my cat a female. She could NEVER get his gender right. LOL! :P

It happens a lot with Rafi because he is built like a malinois. When people apologize I just say, "That's ok, he doesn't mind." Luckily dogs don't have gender and don't have to spend time worrying about their masculinity or femininity being questioned!

People either ask, or call my girls "He".
It seems with a lot of folks, big dogs are male, little dogs and cats are female.

How are they to know though. most people don't go around checking to see if dogs have Frank and Beans or not. Sasha got called a boy a couple dozen times at the fesival yesterday though. It didn't really bother me though.

I have had my females mistaken for males, but never the other way around.

My Phoenix has been called a "she" before...he doesn't care as long as the person shows him the proper adoration. BTW, he's got a Frank but no beans....

No beans here either! But Leo never gets mistaken for a female, however Grace regularly gets called "he."

I agree with this. And it's quite an interesting take on biology!
