Default Is that a...?

So far only one person has recognized my little guy as a chihuahua.

I've only had him a few weeks, but he's been called a jack russel twice, a rat terrier once and a few days ago a little girl even pointed at him and said "Look mommy a bunny!"

What's the oddest thing anyone's ever confused your chi with?

Well that is interesting, thou I do have to say that little girl calling your dog a bunny is priceless!

But I haven't had anyone call my pup something too different, other then my famly calling my girl a rat!!

I am quite surprise about how many people ask about what breed she is and not knowing what she was. Most seem surprise to find out she is a chi!

If I have all 5 of mine out together it confuses people. They ask what breed they are and I reply 'Smooth Coat Chihuahuas'. They invariably ask 'what about that one?' to which I reply' Yes, he/she is a Smooth Coat Chihuahua' 'and that one?' 'Yes, they are all Smooth Coat Chihuahuas' and so on lol
Because they are all different colours, sizes and coat types it really throws people

People often ask me what breed they are and suggest other breeds too, but no one has ever called them bunnies. You win. LOL

Generally people tend to know Lilo is a chi, probably because she is the stereotypical chi colour, but the black and tans seem to cause more confusion. The funniest thing is that Flickr, the picture hosting site I upload my photos on, adds automatic tags from what they detect in the pictures... and every time I upload pictures of Lilo, it tags her as a cat.

When she was a puppy, people would ask me if Tinkerbell was a Rottweiller. Yeah huh. A 2lbs rottie pup. Now, people tend to think she's a MinPin.

As for Gizmo, 9 out of 10 people ask us if he's a Papillion. I assume we'll get the same with Finley when he fills out.
