Kayla’s DNA is in!

If you’ve been following along, you know I submitted some of her cheek cells to determine her breed.  The results came today!!!  Now, make a drum roll sound….

She is a true Heinz 57 dog.  The majority of her DNA comes from a German Shepard, as we expected.  The next biggest contributor is Rottweiler, also a popular guess.  She also has some Bulldog, Bull Terrier, and a bit of Spaniel.  I still don’t understand the upturned tail, but maybe that’s what happens when you get a crazy mixed-up dog. 

The vendor, BioPet, issues a certificate showing various levels of DNA.  Level 1 indicates that at least 75% of the total DNA comes from a particular breed, while Level 5 shows breeds that contribute less than 10%.  Kind of cool.  If you’re curious about your dog, there are worse ways to spend $65. 

Thanks to those of you who submitted guesses on Kayla’s breed.  

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

  1. I do not know who convinced you that they can tell the various breeds in a dog. I had to do a paternaty test on one of mine. I used a national lab. I needed swabs from both potential parents and all the pups. I asked the question, can you tell the breed of the dogs. He laughed. There is no, yes NO test than can do that. Just like there is no test that will say I am Polish or you are Italian. It does not exist. It is a scam. So sad.
