Hey everyone! It was definitely a while back, but I posted about my dogs being an unknown breed, mutt, mixed breed, mongrel, Heinz 57... whatever you want to call it - we had no idea what breeds they had in them. Well, we finally broke the bank and did the Dog DNA Testing from Wisdom Panel (http://www.wisdompanel.com/) and after about 2 weeks, got our results back. Here's what the process was like! GOT THE SWABS IN THE MAIL We finally got the swabs in the mail, and now we can collect our data. If we had multiple dogs, we needed the dogs separated from eachother for 24 hours... (so saliva won't mix) but in our situation, that was kind of impossible. Instead, we just brushed their teeth. The brushing process was normal. After that, we swabbed their saliva just on the inside of their cheek. The swab looked almost like a mascara wand, and you had to turn it for 30 seconds in the dog's mouth. After we did that for both Porter and Boo, we were able to let them air dry and send them off into the mail! WAITING... Believe it or not, the waiting wasn't that bad, because my life is so busy, so I didn't really have time to think about it a whole lot, but it was in the back of my mind! And, then, finally, we got the results! THE RESULTS ARE IN! Yes! We've gotten the results in the mail... it was so neat! The breeds that they concluded from the DNA that was studied were "(breed) Mix" on some of them, and then on the next sheet it gave us a percentage of which breed they thought have contributed to the mix part. Overall, it was surprisingly very detailed. Before we did the DNA testing, we thought Porter was a Border Terrier mix and thought Boo was an Australian Shepherd/Lab (or something along those lines...none of us were really extremely sure). But here is what Wisdom Panel told us! The top is Porter and the bottom is Boo. According to Wisdom Panel... PORTER= Chinese Crested/American Staffordshire Terrier! BOO= Australian Shepherd/Rottweiler! We can definitely see some CC in Porter - his belly is spotted and light on the fur, and his feet are very tufty (if that's a word!). His "bangs" are also features of the CC. He has the personality of a Pitbull!
