Well, I'm a lifelong mutt owner, so I'm pretty much fine with it:)

But where in the world did they get the idea that all mutts are ugly or weird-looking?

Haha, funny video!

I do think it's kind of true. That people kind of prejudge other dog owners based on breed choices. For instance, when I see someone with a Border Collie I tend to assume they're type A personality, energetic/fit, and into dog sports.

Wish they had done GSDs and Mals. I want to know what strangers think of me! :p

" ....girls with Corgis are kind of like spacey, ya know, they'll forget they even have a dog" Okay, that was funny.

Haha I get some shocked facial expressions and sometimes whispered exclamation that I'm Asian and have an Australian kelpie that is actually trained. My dad said the stereotype for many Chinese is to have untrained dogs pulling on leash (he said that he never met a Chinese person who owns a dog and actually trains it consistently or attends obedience school like our dog- they either spoil it too much in a bad way or neglect it in the back yard hmm). Apparently it is even weirder that I have a typical Australian working dog that is suppose to belong to a farm or an Aussie. Funny thing is the Chinese community talks about me in Chinese thinking that I don't understand their language because I own a kelpie (so I must be a Westernised Asian who does not know my native language) lol

According to this since I have aussies I'm either super cool or going to prison lol.
I guess it kind of makes sense in some respects that certain types of people have certain breeds. Certain types of people to tend to gravitate towards certain breed types. Not true for every one, but it was interesting to hear some of the opinions people had for some breed/dog size owners.
