    ...and after careful examination of his DNA by modern science, I'm proud to tell you that we still don't know WTF kind of dog he is. Apparently his DNA doesn't match up to any of the breeds this company "Canine Heritage" has on file.



    $80 well spent. :rant:


    Supposedly these guys are supposed to be able to tell what kind of dogs crossed to give you, your specific mut combination. No worky on Sanch the wonder dog.

    If he has rot or mastiff in him, he's a very small version 75lbs. And lab, being the most common dog out there, would certainly be in there DNA data bank.

    I would classify him: Mutt or haffa

    He is at the very least, not a combination of any of the following breeds, according to Canine Heritage:

    That's because he's part princess.

    J/k

    Our vet was telling us they have these tests available and she thought it was funny that people paid for it.

    The problem is that we always look for two dogs. He could have four mutts as grandparents who all had four mutts for grandparents.

    At that point, I think it's safe to say he's just a "dog".

    edit: Having said that, he sure looks a lab in the face and ears.

    When people ask me what kind of dog he is, I just say "Brown"
    Although I have had people come up to me and ask if he is Mountain Cur.

    Anyway, yeah, I paid for it. Just curious what he was. Not any stupider than a "premium membership" on ridemonkey.

    He is also not a cat.
    Bam, you owe me $80.


    Ha, my wife wants to get a DNA test on our "pit bull" to see what kind of dog he is.
    We were wondering what it would cost.
    If I tell her it is $80 she will get it done, so of course, I am not going to tell her.

    The funny thing is if you have enough generations of mutts breeding with mutts they tend to start looking a lot like the wild dogs we bred them from. The genetic variability of the original wild dog is really quite amazing.

    Bullmastiff, not mastiff. Bullmastiffs are smaller. I had a lab/bullmastiff mix as a kid and that dog is a dead ringer. Lab should be in the DNA bank, but maybe you got ripped.

    He is a good dog. Go neurose about something else.

    I like the dog just fine. It's not like I was going to like him any more or less because I knew what breed he was. I was just curious about it. So sue me.

    Of course not.

    That was the royal "we" standing in for "dog owners".

    Did anyone else find it interesting that they didn't have a longer list of animals the data banks, or are we just not getting the full list?

    Or maybe he is just a fan of genetic testing.
    The same way football fans say, "I hope WE have a good year, even though _ _ _ is our quarterback."

    I have heard this theory thrown about... but then I also know I've heard that dogs are simply domesticated wolves. Muts certainly don't get back to looking like wolves. Maybe dingos.

    In the little packet I got back from them, it said they're expanding the database to 75+ breeds... so I have to take another "swab" and they'll test it again later or something.
    I dont actually understand why they couldn't just compare the first test results against whatever new info they get, but whatever. I already paid for it, so I guess I'll do it.

    Also, they have an option where you can send a pic in to help them narrow things down too. I chose not to do this because, I don't want some guy's "opinion" of what it might be. I can look at a book of dog pictures and make a guess too, so I thought Id simply let the DNA stand alone.

    We'll see what happens I guess.

    I dont know, why do you care to spend your money on a toilet that conserves water when you live in a coastal rainforest where a shortage would never possibly be an issue, and why don't you care to vaccinate your children?

    Fer ****s sakes, I dont really need to explain myself, I just thought Id share.

    Edit:
    I shouldn't have said these things above, because I really need to consider other people's life choices as more important and legitimate than I currently do, and Im not particularly adept at controlling my temper.

    Why care what's down that trail or around the next bend of the river? Why waste your time looking or caring? It's called being curious.

    It wasn't a sarcastic question but a legitimate question...I understand it if you planned on breeding or there were health issue but other that that I was curious....but it's ok you can continue to act like a sandy vag......D

    Probably for the same reason that people say "I'm italian/sicilian/scot/irish/russian" when they are 4-5 generations removed from someone from that actual ethnic group.

    Well I dont mean to be a dickhead but if you read the thread you'd see about 9 other posts exactly like yours asking the same question, which I've answered repeatedly.
    I know everyone here is so much more enlightened than me, and knows much better ways to spend their hard earned dollars and spend their days, and that I only could hope to learn from the greatness of these people, so excuse me for posting such a stupid topic. I will try and learn.
