Ellie and Abbey

Ellie and Abbey are a pair of beautiful, adopted mixed-breed girls. The following was sent in by her owner:

Dear HappyDogDNA,

Abbey (on the right) has been in my life for almost 10 years now, and being such a beautiful dog, everyone always asks me "what kind of dog is she?" We assumed she was a Golden/Chow/Shepherd mix. It turns out we weren't too far off. Surprisingly, however, Abbey is primarily a Bull Dog. I know, I can't figure that out either, but, she is also a Chow and German Shepherd, as we thought. We were also very curious about our very sassy Shepherd/Beagle mix. She has an attitude, but is she ever lovable! Ellie is a Norwegian Elkhound/Lab/Bull Terrier mix. We see the Elkhound, and understand how we thought she was part Shepherd, but were we ever shocked to find out that there wasn't any Beagle in her! It didn't really matter what they are genetically....we love them unconditionally anyway! Thanks for being able to provide us with the interesting DNA info!

Ellie's results:
  • Norwegian Elkhound: Level 2
  • Labrador Retriever: Level 3
  • Bull Terrier: Level 4
  • Lhasa Aspo: Level 4

Abbey's Results:
  • Level 2: Bulldog
  • Level 3: Chow
  • Level 4: Bichon Frise
  • Level 4: German Shepherd
Thanks to Amy for sending in the note and the photo. It's always fun to hear from our customers!
