It's Mike and Gemma and this is our rescue dog Lily. She was found at around 4 weeks old in a field with bite marks infected with, we'll say, "insects"! I get a text from Gemma with a picture of her and there wasn't any way i could say no, right? Needless to say, she is fully healed and raring to go! So then it was time to figure out exactly what she is; and here are the results:

  • Level 3: Parson Russel Terrier
  • Level 4: American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Level 4: Bichon Frise
  • Level 4: Boston Terrier
  • Level 4: Cocker Spaniel
  • Level 5: Yorkshire Terrier

Amazingly enough, she has taken all the positive characteristics of these dogs, and NONE of the negative! OK, she was a little strong-willed (bichon) at housebreaking (Spaniel) but it happens i guess! Thanks so much for such quick info, replies, and material!

Oh yea, check out her facebook page.

Dear Happy Dog,

We just received the results for our 2 year old Dog, Elliott. Thought we would share them.
  • Level 2: Bulldog
  • Level 4: Airedale Terrier
  • Level 4: Papillon
  • Level 4: Rottweiler
  • Level 4: Scottish Terrier

We expected lab and rhodesian ridgeback, so we are quite surprised.

My husband got me a DNA kit for Christmas a year ago. We had always wondered what Nikki was. We were told she was Boxer and Basenji. After we adopted her we met her mother who coincidentally had been adopted by friends of ours. They had also been told she was Boxer and Basenji.

We always wondered where they got the curly tails and a few years ago I started joking that Nikki was part pug. It was the funniest thing I could picture since she is 65 pounds. We thought she might be part Rottweiler because of her markings.

When my DNA results arrived I started laughing when I discovered her highest results are pug! Other than the tail we don’t see it, but taking a new look at her mom we could see the Pug in her. Unfortunately, her mom, Edie, died a few weeks ago at the estimated age of 15. Nikki turned 13 in November and is still doing well, although definitely slowing down.

The black dog in the pictures is Nikki. The gold one is her mom, Edie.

Thanks for the results! It has been a very fun experience.

Nikki’s DNA:
  • Level 2: Pug
  • Level 3: Rottweiler
  • Level 4: Labrador Retriever
  • Level 5: German Shorthaired Pointer
