    Default Dog breeds

    I learned this one today. If a Nica refers to a dog as "people" it means Pit Bull.

    Also,

    Pastor Aleman = German Shepherd

    What other breeds do you know in Nicaraguan?

    Don't think these are technical names:

    Long Dog, Common Dog, Off Dog. Creole, none of that silly Spanish business.

    I've heard any street dog called a perro callejero.

    Jonh..... I don't think you are hearing the word "people" when someone wants to say "pitbull".... but rather the spanish accented pronounciation of the english name "pit bull"!!!! With a spanish accent it would come out like "peepul" because the "i" with a spanish accent comes out as long E or "eeee" and the "t" in pit gets blended with the "b" in bull to end up sounding like "bol" in english... hence you have "people" or "peebol" or "pitbull".

    Oh, trust me; I know what I heard. The "t" in "pit" is silent. "Bull" comes out as "pull." I heard her say "people," or your name isn't Yak.
