How ridiculous to all of a sudden be scared of your 20 pound dog because she might have Rottweiler or Staffy in her. First of all these tests are notoriously WRONG and second, you couldn't be luckier to have a mix of breeds that have absolutely WONDERFUL traits. Stop believing the media crap you read about those breeds and try contacting a reputable rescue group near you that specializes in those breeds and get EDUCATED.

I adopted a rescue puppy from an animal shelter 2 months ago. The shelter said he was a golden retriever mix. I really wanted to know what "Wally" was, so I can know his temperament and health issues as he ages. I used the BioPet DNA lab. Wow, was I surprised with the results! Wally has these DNA traits in this order: Chihuahua, Basset Hound, Miniature Pinscher, Border Collie, and Collie. My Vet will be really surprised to hear the results. I'm so glad I got Wally and pleasantly surprised to hear what breeds he has in him. I highly recommend this DNA test on your dog.

I notice that each one lists ONLY "trace amounts" of whatever breeds they found. Do they give percentages, or offer an idea of which breed may be the most dominant? Or does a dog with, say 10% of a certain breed carry just as many traits of that breed as it does of the other 90%??

My small 20 dog has long haired, swept up curving tail, and straight up, pointed ears.I'm not sure what the actual AKC description of these traits is. I tell people she looks like a little black fox. Canine Heritage identified this dog as an "IN the Mix" Chihuahua, Rottweiler, and "Staffordshire Bull Terrier" or foundation sire for pit bulls. I think she looks nothing like this. I also regret doing the test, because, prejudiced as it may be, I would not have adopted her if I had thought she had any pit bull or Rottweiler. These results make me feel more cautious and a little afraid of her.I don't want to repeat the tests with another company because I'm afraid they'll find the same thing.

Interesting article. I work as a vet etch and I do have to say that I would only consider results from the Wisdom Panel. I have experience with both testing agencies and can honestly say that the Wisdom Panel is 100x more accurate.

Interesting article, but I hated the layout. I wish that the answers were put at the bottom of the page- each time I scrolled down I saw the answers, which totally sucked.

I don't like how they have two choices as the correct answer on some of them, that makes it more confusing because they are asking you to choose one.

I have to wonder how accurate these tests are. I cant' imagine they are. What would the test do if you tested a Standard Schnauzer? Would it tell you it's a Standard, a Mini, or a Giant? (all related) The different poodles? How about the four Belgian breeds which are actually different varieties of the same breed in other countries.


Personally I think its' a lot of money to basically learn nothing. I guess its "fun" and everyone seems to want an "identity" for their dog rather than calling it a mutt. But calling an apple a pear doesn't make it a pear. Embrace what your dog is! If you don't want a mixed breed, then get a purebred. The results don't mean much, as there may be other breeds in your dog, inaccuracy in the testing, and no matter what your dog will look and act like it does...the test results won't change that. :-)

It was fun but I wish the answer was in another area. It was too easy to see it. It would be fun to do each month . Also to know the dogs weight and size.

I had done the Canine Heritage XL Breed test on my mixed breed, and it had 4 breeds in the mix, all but one was pretty close. It's a nice way to get an idea of what kind of dog you really have!
