|After talking to a few friends, it became clear that many shelters, whether purposely or not, tell potential adopters that their dog is a breed mix that they clearly aren't. I will give you my example, and then I would love to hear yours!
I was told when I got Teddy at 9 weeks that he was a shepherd mix (I knew this wasn't true right off of the bat) who would be 30-40 pounds when he is full grown (I believed this BOL).
At 18 months, I can assure you that he is not a shepherd mix at all, but rather some sort of bully mix. In addition, he weighs in at a whopping 70 pounds. I love him dearly and wouldn't trade him for the world, but it is interesting to think that he isn't exactly what I "signed" up for.
Has anyone else come home with a dog that they were told was one thing, only to find out they were clearly something else?
