Whenever i take my sable pup out we are always asked by the general public, if hes a coyote, or if hes mixed with wolf? When I rescued Dex he came with two other siblings, both black and tan. The first two homes i found for them wanted the black and tan pups only, but not him because of his color. So we decided to keep him.

I was just wondering if other owners of sables get the same reaction?

Some ask me what kind of dog is Lisl. Most around here have never heard of, or have seen a sable GSD.

ALWAYS!!! Ugh.. I get quite annoyed when people try to tell me what my dog is.

that dog looks mixed- with a jackrabbit. I do get asked if my dark sable is a mutt, someone called her an Aussie. I think a dark sable looks kinda like a rott/shepherd.

Yup. It was worse when Kaylee was small and her pattern wasn't obvious; she's a saddle pattern so now she just looks like a fadey kinda normal. But when she looked so wild that her registered middle name is actually Coyote. ;) My boy is a dark sable and people just call him a police dog.
