Wow! Look at those eyes!


Just wanted to let you know how our DNA test turned out. We were very surprised at our results. Our dog was determined to be the following:
  • Golden Retriever: Level 3
  • Border Collie: Level 4
  • German Shorthair Pointer: Level 4
  • Poodle: Level 4
  • American Eskimo Dog: Level 5
  • Belgian Tervuren: Level 5
  • Brittany: Level 5
  • Papillon: Level 5

Here is what she looks like (she weighs 17 lbs):

We got a good laugh that she could look so different from her parentage. We expected to find terrier, chihuahua or even dachshund.....but never would have guessed Golden Retriever!!!

Thanks again for a fun experience. I once had another mixed breed dog that I would have loved to have known what she was (she's been gone 4 years now). This is a cool product.


Thank you, Cindy! Sammi's DNA test detected the most breeds I believe we've seen at Happy Dog DNA (althought BioPet Vet Lab has reported more). As we've noted before, when there are more than two or three breeds present in the mix, the dominant characteristics of the breeds are not always evident. And when you've got eight, you're not likely to recognize any of the breeds. Sammi is one unique girl!
