🐢 I Bet You Can’t Spell the Names of 10/20 of These Dog Breeds

What's a "Chiwawa"?

Dogs. As much as we love them, many of us can't spell their breeds correctly. We're not just referring to breeds with names like the Spinone Italiano, Bichon FrisΓ©, or Xoloitzcuintle. Some of the most popular dog breeds that are pervasive in commercials, on magazine covers, and in major mass media are the ones whose names are most frequently misspelled.

The most common misspellings of these dog breed names tend to be phonetic and based on the sounds that people perceive. People often spell the dog breed that was named for the Mexican state of the same name as "Chiwawa". Its fellow toy dog breed Shih Tzu has an even more unfortunate and slightly vulgar misspelled name. Schnauzer is frequently misspelled as "Shnauzer" and Doberman Pinscher as "Pincher".

There's no better time than now to brush up on those tricky-to-spell breeds in this quiz. Most of these breeds are very common, but you may be surprised by how many you have been spelling wrongly!
