Having a mixed breed puppy is fine. People want the tests due to several reasons, some breeds are more prone to cnacer, I know I had one, I adopted a resuce puppy in August and i do not know what breed she is so I am going to have her tested. That way you can take preventitive measures for illnesses. So thats why the testing is there. its not a waste of money.....

If you have a mixed breed dog, accept that it's a mixed breed dog. The DNA tests aren't accurate. Why do people feel a need to identify the breeds that make up their companion? I just don't get it. I've owned several mutts and never felt the need to say what they were genetically. I knew one was minimally a beagle mix, most likely some GSD in her, but she looked like a BC. I simply called her a mixed breed dog. Not a BeagleShep or anything else. I realize some like solving mysteries, but others seem to simply be seeking a status in the identification. Be proud that your dog is a rescued (Hopefully) Mixed breed!

The Wisdom Panel is only one of 3 tests available, and is by far the most expensive (it also has to be done by a vet, whereas the others are done at home by cheek swab).
