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!
