Everyone had there opinion of what Hank was but you have now answered that question. Quite the mix, he was adopted at the local shelter as a pup and listed as a shar-pei mix? He is a great dog and I recommend your product often at the dog park.

Thanks again, Eric

We at Happy Dog DNA are always so touched by our customers' stories and impressed by the love and care that they give to their adopted dogs. Here is another touching story of a dog that was in dire need of some giving and compassionate new owners.


You sent us out DNA test kit - results:
  • Level 2: Doberman Pinscher
  • Level 4: Afghan Hound
  • Level 5: Great Dane
  • Level 5: Miniature Pinscher
We were so surprised! She has just turned 4 yrs (our vet can't be certain) and is small for a Dobe. But she was chained in yard first 2 yrs and never exercised - collar grew into her neck - took 2 vets 4 hrs to remove it - had reconstructive surgery a few months later. Here she is! (with us).

I have to say, anticipating the results of Apollo's DNA test was the most fun I've had in a long time! My husband and I adopted Apollo when he was seven weeks old from the county animal shelter. We were told that he was a Shar Pei and Labrador mix and would likely be a medium-sized dog. We preferred bigger dogs, but weren't influenced by his possible smaller size. But as he grew, we realized that he would likely exceed medium-sized...and he did. Eighty-plus pounds later, we have our beautiful, loyal, protective and sweet boy. So, as we waited for the results, my husband held true to his belief of a Golden Chow Chow. I wasn't as sure. Here are the results:
  • Level 3: Dalmatian, Mastiff
  • Level 4: St. Bernard, Siberian Husky
  • Level 5: Parson Russell Terrier (still laughing about that one!)
Apollo now has new nicknames, like Spot, St. Apollo, and Hooch. Actually, due to his drooling, we've always called him Hooch.

Thanks again for the fun.

Jim, Pat and Apollo

Thank you Jim and Pat! It appears this is a great recipe for a handsome dog with a beautiful coat!

Meeko, another great rescue story...

Meeko was obtained from a rescue group - family that he was living with was splitting up and did not want to take the dog (he was listed by the rescue group as a Sheppard/lab mix). He is great with our kids (ages 11 & 8), is a good watch dog. We got Meeko after the death of our Greyhound in January 2009.
  • Level 3: Boxer
  • Level 4: Bichon Frise, Borzoi, Chinese Shar Pei, Saluki
  • Level 5: Golden Retriever, Poodle
Thank you for the quick response.
