30 Times Dogs Turned Out To Be A Different Breed Than The Owners Anticipated

Whoever has experienced this unexpected yet freaking lovable transformation of your doggo will understand what are we talking about. Grown-up pets are defined as a bigger version of being a kid, but sometimes life doesn’t grant what we command.

Hold up, there’s a saying “When this door closes another one opens” and you are completely not alone in this case. In fact, there are too many pet owners out there who had their expectations hit with a reality check after their puppies grew up and the owner had no idea why them pups turned out to be another breeds.

But you know what? In the end, the breed is just a label and these woofers are still adorable!

#1 “He’s a hound mix… they said. He will be 45 lbs max… they said. They didn’t say he was mixed with Great Dane. And that he would be 45 lbs when he was 4 months old. Loki is now a comfortable 100lbs”

There are so many reasons why we came to this confusion about the dog breeds. Antonio Diaz, a dog trainer and behavior specialist based in Las Vegas said it happened all the time due to 2 reasonable points:

First, “people aren’t doing their research on the breeder.” Second, “a low price on a 'purebred dog' blinds some of us, and you get caught in a scam.” If it’s too good to be true, “you know the rest.” explained Antonio.

Antonio believes that most of these dogs “come from backyard breeders.” In order to avoid confusion later, people should “always ask to see the parents of the puppies AND previous litters.”

He warns that if the parents “aren’t’ available, it’s a red flag and you should run.”


So why does it have this changes?

In fact, it happens in humans too. “Young children can have blonde hair and end up being brunet as adults. Our eye colors sometimes change too.” - Antonio sensibly concluded.

Dogs tend to change their appearance since they grow older. “They have an undercoat that grows as they get older. Different patterns and colors of fur start to develop and grow in.”

As a result, your dog could literally transform his looks with time. “This is what happened with my own German shepherd. She was dark in her face as a puppy and got lighter as she aged.” said Antonio.

No matter how they look, we would forever engage with those dorkie chorkie doggos right?
