Thanks.

I have my eye on an orange one. Everybody assumes shes a boy because I made a mistake getting blue.

I went with a nice pattern in green and two shades of pink on a brown background.... I wanted pink but not tooooo girly for my new baby female! Its a great compromise... I just bought the next size up today knowing she will outgrow this one in the next month or two

Believe me...it's won't matter. People see big dog and call her a he. they see little cat and call him a her. They see a baby boy in all blue and called him a girl because of his pretty blue eyes...people see what they want to see.

So buy whatever color makes you happy.

I have my pup decked out in hot pink tags, collar and leash - Doesn't matter. She has never been referred to as a "she". Big dog = boy.

We got ours a pink studded leather collar and people still called her a boy. Now, she's wearing a plaid burberry rip-off type collar, and people are calling her a girl... maybe they are associating a brand name on a dog as being feminine?

I don't know.. Just buy what you like! Who cares if they know it's a boy or girl... she doesn't realize it, and just sees a smiling face and friendly voice.

I think it is bad enough when we sterotype humans by the color of the clothes they wear. (Who gives a rat's patoot if the child is a boy or a girl? Why should it matter?) I'm certainly not going to do that to my dog.
Valkyrie has a bright blue collar for puppy protection training. I would have liked the magenta one except they didn't have it in the size I needed. When she was a pup she went through several collars. I loved getting a red one with rhinestones because I thought it was so silly on a GSD. [It was on sale and therefore cheap - + it amused me.]

Depending on her coloration I think probably some of the new combo colors would be pretty ... turquoise with chocolate or pink for example if you can find it. Or maybe something like .. this:

Anyone that sees Shelby immediately assumes she is a HE. My boyfriend didn't want anything pink. We had green and dark purple when she was little. Her "big girl" collar is multi colored with a lot of orange. Looks kind of feminine, but in the end it doesn't really matter.

Any color/style you like and that you feel like putting on her. Dogs don't have gender (they are not girls or boys, they are female and male). Gender is socially constructed by humans, for humans.

Rafi has a turquoise and purple collar and his two favorite balls are hot pink. :p

We're decked out in purple here and the easy walk I have is hot pink..."what's his name" "he's gonna be big". Seriously, big dog = boy, that's all I'm getting!!!

I had to make this decision today when I picked my pup up from the breeder. I went with a lime green. Her big girl collar i bought is purpleish with a reflective band in the middle.

Wow. I thought it was just me with people calling my female dog a boy. She wears a purple service dog vest and I have several pink and purple leashes. Even after I say Fiona is her name, I still get he is a good boy.

Personally I would just pick a color and collar that you like (I was teasing a lil about the daisy collar). That's why my little old male (he's a black with white points shih tzu) has always worn purple as I like the color against his black coat. I plan on using a turquoise with my new pup as HIS collar, just because I think it will look nice against his (hopefully) sable coat. I've always used red for my GSDs before but I want something different this time.
