Received Zoey's Ancestry Analysis and we were very surprised at the results. Attached are two pictures of Zoey at about 4 months old. We had been told that she was Norwegian Elkhound/Rat Terrier mix. You confirmed the Elkhound, but the analysis indicated a mix of four Level 3 breeds:
  • Level 3 Beagle
  • Level 3 Boston Terrier
  • Level 3 Chihuahua
  • Level 3 Norwegian Elkhound
I guess the fact that she is related to the Taco Bell Chihuahua explains the ears. Zoey is very sweet and affectionate, loves to be petted, but doesn't like to be left alone. When that happens, she will often leave a "scented package" for us, on the carpet.

Please note, the dog below was not tested:

Wish that your service had been available for our previous dog, whose 2 pictures are also attached. We got Webster when he was 9 weeks old and weighed about 5 pounds. We were told that he was a cocker/shi-tsu mix, but when he matured at 61 pounds, we knew that was not right. Webster was a beautiful animal that our vet thought might be golden retriever/afghan hound mix -- he loved to fetch balls. Unfortunately Webster had a genetic disorder that caused him to produce bladder stones; he was surgically fixed to allow him to pee like a female. But Webster died at age 7 from a liver disease.
