You’ve heard them referred to as mutt-i-grees, Heinz 57 dogs, mongrels, mixed breeds, and just plain mutts. But my favorite description of a dog with uncertain heritage comes from a book I just listened to on CD.
In “The Best Revenge”, Stephen White describes a pack of dogs this way: “None of the dogs’ gene pools had been contaminated with an AKC specimen in many generations.”
OK, I’m warped, but I thought that was just a hoot!

Loyal readers will remember I sent away Kayla’s DNA to see what she is made of on June 29th. I received an e-mail last week stating that my order had been received and was in process. Before the results are in, any guesses? She has the coat of a German Shepherd, but a curled tail like a Huskie or Chow. She’s just a bit bigger than my Golden Retriever. Also, she is on the aggressive side. We saw her mom, who I thought looked a lot like a Border Collie. From her picture above, what would you say?
If you own a mutt, as I do, you may have spent some time wondering what breeds went into his making. Thanks to a new test from BioPetVetLab.com, it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg to find out.
