Doggie DNA

I've always wondered what the beautiful Lupo's parentage was, so I had a doggie DNA test done. Well, to my surprise he is:

German Shepherd - Level 1

Level 1: Over 75% of the DNA found in your dog is from the breed listed.

Actually no surprise with that one, I always knew he had a whacking great dollop of GS in him.

Irish Setter - Level 4

Level 4: Each breed listed represents between 10-19% of your dog's DNA

Huh? Really? Well yes OK he does have a very rounded head, moreso than a GS and the beautiful soft eyes of a setter.

Rottweiler - Level 5

Level 5: Each breed listed represents less than 10% of your dog's DNA

Oh my goodness! Well yes, now I know where that barrel chest comes from!

And there I was thinking he was a GS/Husky mix. Whatever his parentage, and now I see it fitting in, he is my boofle (beautiful) boy :)

I had heard about those test...but thought it was a myth. I HAVE to have one down on my two dogs. I know they're part Husky and part Shelty...but I'm sure there' s a whole lotta other parts going on....

That would have been cool to have done on my Chelsea, just to see. We always said she was black Lab/Australian Shepard mix, and she seemed to fit that mold.

I often wonder what the results would be on my supposed pure bred Labrador. I'm sure that it wouldn't come back 100% that.

No matter what his heritage is, he is indeed a boofle boy!
