  1. New puppy, she looks mixed so I got her a DNA test

    Attention All New Members
    Hello! My puppy Snowie is now 7th months old. The person we got it from said she is a pom, but in order to make sure I got her a DNA test from Embark. I made a short video with the results. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RHEbyc6DBI&feature=youtu.be Please let me know what breed you...
  2. I'm new!!!

    Attention All New Members
    Hi! I'm the new mom of a now 8 month old Zuchon. I've had dogs my entire adult life that were always a "surprise" (size, mixture of breeds, etc "free to good home"). My new guy is the first one I thought I knew what I was getting, since I paid money for him. As he continued to grow past his...
  3. Would you do a genetic test on a mix?

    Dog Health Questions
    I recently adopted a Lab mix. I know the mother is 100% pure breed, but the breed of the father is a mystery. How important is it to know the father's make-up? OK, I'm dying to know out of curiosity (where did that white patch come from?). But will it be important for health history, etc...
  4. Charlies DNA test came in

    General Dog Forum
    I got the results back! We were told: Jack Russell/Cocker Spaniel. I was leaning ( and others) to Min Pin. Came back: Chihuahua and Spaniel ( king charles and cocker). One of her parents was full blooded Chi the other was mix of the spaniels. :clap2::clap2: So another vote for Wisdom Panel!
  5. New member has new rescue pup!

    Attention All New Members
    Howdy folks, Decided to join so I could keep up with the world of dogs as I raise our new rescue named Penelope and completing my obligatory first post in this forum. While i'm at it can anyone guess what type of dog she is? The rescue believes she is part Corgi, but beyond that I do not...
  6. Standard Poodle in there? Really? Duke's DNA is in....

    General Dog Forum
    So, Duke's Wisdom Panel 2.0 came in. I don't much care what he is, but the results are very surprising to me. This DNA test shows Duke as 50% Rottweiler, and then a mix of other things that I just don't see. I've always loved Rotts, but definitely wouldn't have guessed that of him. What do...
  7. DNA Tests: What's your experience? Which is the best?

    General Dog Forum
    Meet Skye, our newest family member. The shelter labeled him as a Boxer - Greyhound mix. I think the Boxer mix is a little easier to agree with than the Greyhound side. The tapered waist, deep chest and gallop says greyhound to me, but I would like more back-up. However, he tends to sniff...
  8. Surprising/questionable DNA breed results - what's your best guess?

    General Dog Forum
    I rescued a 'hound mix' from the local humane society almost a year ago when he was 7 months old. They had no breed history on him but their adult size estimate has been more or less accurate: approx. 75lbs. I have my thoughts about what breeds he is based on a few characteristics, but I...

  10. What breed is my pup???

    General Dog Forum
    What breed do you think my dog is? My best guess is staffordshire bull terrier/doberman mix. She's got doberman markings, but a pit like face, but more slender than a pit all around. She's about 11 months old and 55lbs. Eventually I plan on getting a doggie dna test, but until then I'd like...
  11. Any info on DNA tests for mixed breeds?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I'm getting more and more curious what breeds make up our lovely little pooch. Right now we call her a "Heinz 57". As I understand it there are blood tests and cheek-cell swab tests. Anyone have any reviews regarding brands and types of test? We want to find out A) for fun, B) so we can...
