I know a number of people who have done this test on dogs with known lineage and it came back with some screwy results. I believe there are some real limitations and it seems to come up with rare [and unlkley] exotic breeds in the woodpile.

If I were going to spend money on a genetic test, I would rather spend it looking for disease markers. There is a new test for degenerative myelopathy.

Here are our dogs. We think the bigger one (Yogi) is german shephard/yellow lab - no idea on her parents, she's 2 years old. The little one (Harlie), the only thing we know for sure is that her mom was part rotti --- go figure, she is 6 years old. Both are females we adopted. I would love to have the DNA tests done, if I had to choose which one, it would be Harlie.

It is hard to see the small picture but the bigger one looks like it could have Malinois in it. Not uncommon for them to wind up in shelters because people don't know what they are getting in for. [if your dog is wild and crazy - could be - that is why most Malinois get dumped]. Definitely does not look pure though.

Clicking on the picture makes it a little larger. I've never heard of a Malinois. She's a good dog, pretty smart, she's just very skittish, she likes to "paw" at you, she thinks she's the same size as the smaller one, so she ends up on laps (invited). She has wrinkles on her forehead that I just love and every once in a while her right ear will stand straight up. She's got a good nose on her also, great guard dog. She's actually pretty calm, not wild and crazy.....thank goodness. Thanks for the info, I'll be looking up the Malinois dog.

Hi,

I just wanted to show you a photo of my dog Melinko. I did the DNA test & they said he is a border collie/german shorthaired pointer mix. The photo you posted of your female looks like they are very simular.

I wanted to have it done on Goku. He's Boxer/pitbull/shar-pei mix. But I'm not too sure on the Pitbull though. His dad had the body of a pit but the fur and tail of a shar-pei.
