What have people mistaken your Pit Bull for?

    I know I'm not the only one who have had people mistake my Pit Bull for a different breed.

    When Ven was a pup (very young and small pup) some one asked if he was a Mini Boxer puppy. Then when he was a little older some guy argued with me that he was a Shar Pei and couldn't believe he was a Pit Bull.

    When Santana was a pup I was also asked if she was a Boxer or a Boxer mix.

    When Twist was a pup a lady told me "What a cute American Bulldog puppy."

    I also had some one argue that my fawn Boxer MUST be a Pit Bull, first they asked and when I said NO she's a BOXER they said are you sure, because she looks like a Pit Bull to me. She must be a Pit Bull and she has her tailed docked. Some people are just morons :roll:

    When Punkin was a Puppy I was asked if she was a Lab? Come on? She's a very light fawn. I guess because she has floppy ears. Pinky was also mistaken for an American Bulldog when she was a pup.

    Piper has been mistaken for a Boxer pup many times - more so when she was smaller.

    I didn't have the pups mistaken for anything (Maggie's 1st litter), but someone commented about one girl who had a lot of skin to grow into that she could be a Sharpei. I think (not 100% sure) that Gauge probably got mistaken for a Boxer when we lived at our apt complex.

I couldn't believe it first the lady obviously knows nothing about dogs or atleast not terriers and second she was terrified of an 8 wk. old puppy!! COME ON!!!!!

    Goo- "One of those racing dogs" (Greyhound.... ummm....?), Mastiff, Chocolate lab (50 lb brindle colored pit bull=chocolate lab.... right :y_the_best: )

    Haley- rotty (? White and brown?), bulldog (this by an 11 yo kid, so I'm pretty sure he was talking about EBs), lab (haha, don't they wish :mrgreen: ), boxer

    And here's one that made my day a few years ago... I had the hot dog (dachshund) playing fetch/tug up at the school, and as some kids walked by, one told me she must've been "mixed with pit" because that's she only way she could hold onto a rope toy like that :lol: It wasn't until later that I realized how sad that really was :?
