And he's part bloodhound! That just cracked me up. But looking at his tail I can see it now. He is also Shiba Inu, which we thought and part Chow which we were told. The other possibilities are Lab, no surprise there! And White Swiss Shepherd but that's not as strong as the lab. They predict he'll be about 45 - 60 pounds full grown and I think that's about right. He's 4 months old now and about half Judy's size, she's 55 pounds.

It was a fun thing to do and reading the descriptions of the breeds it makes sense, he loves to play in water a Shiba trait from what I've read. He's very shy with anyone, human or animal that he doesn't know but great with those he's familiar with so I'm socializing him with dogs, cats and humans.

So now when people ask, 'what kind of dog is that?' I can say he's a Shibchoblo! We coined that last night at work, LOL

Yeah, no fun without pics!

I had Rudy tested when he was younger, and they basically said he was a mutt - LOL. But they only had about 88 breeds on the list back then, and the two I suspect most (Cattle Dog & Kelpie) weren't on it. So I might test him again now that they've expanded, just to satisfy my own curiosity. How much did you pay, and what company did you use?

Oh, and I love the name "Shibchoblo!" When people ask what Rudy is, I sometimes tell them he's a "Rare Australian Pingodoodle." My old roommate came up with that one, since he resembles a dingo, and the one breed that test did find was (less than 10%) poodle.

LOL I never met a 'rare Australian Pingodoodle,' must be a very special dog indeed!

I used Wisdom panel and with Amazon prime I think it was about $70. You can have the vet do it too, it's more expensive and uses blood vs a swab. I was concerned that the test would be invalid because Ben tried to eat the first swab but I managed to get the second one done correctly.

Wisdom Panel 2.0 tests for over 200 breeds and 100% of AKC breeds. I sent in my dog's sample last week, so I'm still waiting for the results. I already had the test done, but it was with Wisdom Panel Insights or something like that.

The only thing I can't find is a breed that has an obsession with climbing the walls. Ben just tried it again, this time it was the folding doors that hide the water heater. He does it all over, earlier he was pawing at a light switch, I thought maybe he wanted more illumination in the hallway? I dunno why he does it other than it's something to DO. He's a funny, funny pup. He ran up to a stranger today as if he was a long lost friend then was very skittish with a woman neighbor. He's bright so he keeps me in line and one my toes!

He's adorable! He's going to be a beautiful dog. Shibas can be difficult with people outside the family, so be sure to keep up the socialization. Quirky and catlike too, so climbing the walls sounds about right lol.
