LOL...Most of you remember Repo...a 6 week old puppy, a friend and I "reposessed" from an irresponsable family...My daughter decided to give him his forever home. When she was here visiting and picking him up, we thought it would be fun to give him a DNA test...you send away for the kit..we could only find one manufacturer...and everyone carried the it...cost was $40. Test arrived quickly, came with two cotton swabs that you swabed the inside of the dogs mouth with, and sent back...waited 2 weeks.
Here's Repo:Repo and his DNA Test!-chris-jim-visit-11-08-038.jpg

He is a bit older now...11 weeks...and weighs some 25lbs.
Test came back....LOL
Largest fraction: Chow
followed by: Irish Setter, Brittany and ready for this?
Papyillon! LOL...Think we got ripped off?

LOL...no, no, no.....the test! Repo is an absolute doll...and we really could care less what he is....we thought it would be fun to just find out his "heritage". We were sure Lab would be first and foremost....LOL...and I think it still is.

Well even as an ex breeder I would never waist my money on DNA test. There is not enough proof as to the breeds they claimming. Now if its a pedigree dispute as to parents & you can get them tested to compaire then I would do it.

I tested what I though was black lab/Border Collie mix and found out she was GSD/GSP. WHen she lies down and her ears fall the right way, I can sure see the GSD. And i guess her coat is more GSD.

I definitely would've bet on Lab as his primary breed. Goes to show you why I couldn't win in Vegas!

Either way, he's awfully cute!

My half Chow (who was from a purebred, akc chow mother so there is no doubt) looked just like that as a puppy. Except for the white markings, she was solid black.

Well, the results sure c/h fooled me (very interesting combination) but it's good that you had it done, the mystery is solved. I sure don't see chow, IS, Brittany or Papillion in him but what do I know - will be interesting to see how he looks as he matures b/c they do change somewhat. Breeds aside, he's a lovely pup and a lucky boy.
