Super User NYWayfarer Posted February 19 Super User Share Posted February 19 We adopted a shelter pet in August. Iggy was labeled a “hound mix” by the SPCA. Everyone that sees her thinks she is, or is part Golden Lab. I have a detective mind by nature. No mystery goes without investigation with me. I purchased a dog DNA test to find out the breeds Iggy is made up of. A quick cheek swab mailed to the company takes about three weeks to get back results. I was shocked. There is not an ounce of Lab blood in her. About the only thing I got right was my guess that the hound part of her was Treeing Walker CoonHound. Our vet said he saw Beagle in her upon her initial visit. No one believes the Shar-Pei part until I show them she has a blue dot on her tongue. Shar-Pei and Chow dogs have blue tongues. Anyway we love our German Sheppit as we now call her. She is really a sweet dog. Not a mean bone in her body. Other than some destructive bed shredding separation anxiety at times we are very happy. If you have a mutt, these tests can be eye opening fun. 12 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
