I really wish I had a spare 80.00 to throw away because I would send in a DNA sample of Scout and see what they come up with. The DoggieDNA Facebook page occasionally posts pics of people's dogs and has other's guess what breeds they found in the mix. They have this one up today that looks nothing, IMO, like 2 of the breeds it claims it's mixed with. Has anyone on here ever submitted a sample in to identify their dogs mix? If so, were you satisfied with the results ?
I'm going to provide the link to the Facebook page (not sure it will work though) and scroll down to the picture of Bengal. See if you can guess the 3 breeds correctly without reading all the comments to find out if you are right. Or read them and find the breed mixture and post whether you agree or not. When you see the dog's picture and read the results, I think you'll guess which two breeds I am questioning. If you agree with their results, point out the characteristics you see in the picture that substantiate it for me because I am just not seeing it.
Deputy I think you can only put a picture up if you have gone and submitted a sample to Wisdom Panel. I think they verify their results before posting pics. You should look at another dog on there that I would swear has at least SOME APBT or AMStaff in him but came up negative for both breeds.
I do stand corrected on Bengal though. apparently I did not read the first time very well through all the posts and missed the one where the owner said the Shelter told her Bengal's mother was a black APBT. Even knowing that I still cannot see it in him anywhere lol.
You know this game is kinda fun. It's kind of crazy too. I mean it's kind of fun to guess the breeds in the mix when you will eventually get an answer that is supposed to be correct. But crazy to see which breeds they really are because I swear they are big-time stumpers(and sometimes totally unbelievable) !!!!!
I don't believe it's entirely accurate either. Not from what I have seen posted and the results. I cannot send in any of my animals except Scout. I have no idea what the other 3 are mixed with but I know Scout is pure so if it came back she was anything but what she is I would know it is a scam for sure. For the longest time they didn't have her breeds DNA but now they do so I could do it if I felt like peeing away 80 bucks. And since very few people have even heard of her breed, she is often mistaken for a mastiff, lab, shepherd mix I would be curious to see how it played out lol.
Well it was fun playing on there today and guessing all the mixes. I even got one right =)
I def see Great Pyrenees. Why is it so hard to believe there is any Am Staff? I mean it's mixed with three different breeds. I don't think it would be unusually if it doesn't have any strong physical traits of one of the breeds. That's how the genetic dice roll works.
I think it is pretty on. Sometimes you can't always see what breeds are in a dog. They don't always look like what they are. My friend had her two dogs tested. One she knew the mix of, half Labrador Retriever and the other half was Australian Cattle Dog and Puli. She got the tests back and they were exact. The other dog she didn't know, but he looks like a small shepherd with a really long coat. It came back as German Shepherd Dog and Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. I can totally see those breeds! Mixing breeds is like random genetics. My aunt is going to have her dogs tested. One is a Lab/Husky/Collie (known from the breeder) and the other is a cross of Schnoodle and Pug (known also from the breeder). She has already sent her test in and are still waiting for the results. Her other dog looks like a Shepherd/Tervuren cross, but she couldn't afford to do him this time, so she is going to do him in a few months. I'm guessing his test results are very close to Shepherd/Tervuren because he looks like both! You can't always tell what breeds are in a dog by looking at them. One of my friends has a very stange cross from known cross parents. Father is a Toy Poodle/Rottweiler cross and the father is a Bichon/Shar Pei cross. The dog looks like a small Lhasa Apso or Maltese mix...but isn't even close!
