I was just reading BellaPup's thread on her dog's DNA results. A couple of other people responded saying they'd had the tests done too. I didn't wanna hijack her thread, so I decided to start this one.

To the others that have had a DNA test done, what breeds did YOU think your pup was? And what did the DNA test say your pup was? Pictures would be good in this thread too!! :D

I wanna do DNA tests on my dogs just to see if they're really what I think they are. One of mine is ~18# (slightly overweight), tan & grey with a touch of white on his chest, and loves to chase the cats. It's my guess that he's a schnauzer/Yorkie mix. I'd LOVE to find out what a DNA test says that he really is... or do all of the different DNA tests to find out if they all say the same thing!! :eek:

It would also be good to note which company you used for the DNA test. Most of the ones out there have a limited number of breeds they recognize, I belive one of the companies can only recognize 39 breeds. Whereas companies like wisdom panel have 130+ breeds that they can recognize. So the company you went with will make a difference on the acuracy of your test.

We had DNA testing done on our dogs via the BioPet lab. We thought Casey was a Siberian Husky mix, and Roy was a border collie mix. The results:

Casey- more than 75% Siberian Husky, with some Great Dane (that explains why he's so big!)

Roy- a total mutt (some Dalmation, border collie, bernese mountain dog, beagle, great dane and pomeranian!)

We also did BioPet, had seen pictures of similar dogs in our area on Craigslist as pom / poodle. While the test was being done we ran into a person who knew the breeder of our dog (we got her at the shelter) so we knew before the results came back what she was...pom / poodle.

The results were 75% pomeranian
5% or less poodle
5% or less pekingese
5% or less Irish setter (???) ok, that one's a bit odd...

I thought Penny was mostly Aussie/BC/other herding breed, but it turns out she's mostly Husky. I knew Toby was mostly GSD....and that's how his test came out. We thought Shug was mostly BC, but it turns out she's at least half Aussie.

We used biopet also and we thought she might have some german shep in her somewhere, the vet thought maybe some Aust Shep ( we didnt see that at all ) but really had no clue thats why I joined the forum I posted pictures and had some people say maybe some collie but she really didnt look like anything thats why we did it to see. She is a Chowliepeidoberdane lol she is in order of most to least
Chow
Collie
Shar pei
Doberman
Great Dane lol
But now that we know this we can see at least one trait from each breed and now we know why we couldnt figure her out she is a big ol' cluster of a bunch of different things. She is really an odd ball even her personality. But she is a real sweetie. We love her no matter what she is lol
