Default Huh... i don't see it...

So last week I emailed the people we got Molly from, since it's been a year that we've had her. They emailed us back, sent pics of the pup that they kept (Moose). They look somewhat alike. Then Moose's owners forwarded the email that I sent to someone else who had gotten a puppy from them. This lady has a sister of Molly's, named Nina. Molly and Nina have completely different faces and ears, but their body structure is somewhat alike, and they weigh the same amount (50 lbs). Moose's owners didn't say how much he weighs.

And apparently, Nina's owners had a DNA test done on her, with the results of part Rottweiler, Great Dane, German Short-haired Pointer and Bernese Mountain dog. Shouldn't that mixture be... huge??? Granted, Molly's mom was about 35 lbs, but still...

I've been assuming Molly is some sort of lab/spaniel mix. What do you think?

Those DNA tests I don't think are accurate. I've seen people send in samples of registered, even champion purebreds and they come back weird. There was one AKC Ch Am Staff that I believe came back as mostly border collie.

It's hard to tell what she is from those shots. Could be spaniel, retriever, even a bit of bc in there. I definitely see some some sort of retriever. She has a really interesting muzzle though!

Yeah, I hear that some DNA tests are more accurate than others. I think I'm gonna email her back and ask what brand of test it was...

The muzzle looks pure spaniel to me, I'm not sure what breed but I picture a spaniel and the picture with her natural coat...wow...but no matter what she is she sure is gorgeous.

I see lab, spaniel, and MAYBE the Bernese mountain dog with that coat.


Gavroche came back as Boxer and Scottie lmao xD Of course to put it in perspective, with the percentages the test said, one great-great grandparent would have been Scottie, and all the others Boxers, so it's plausible. One single scottie that far back may not necessarily have an impact on his appearance. He is on the small side for a boxer

Me, too. Besides her coat, her face really looks Lab/BMD to me.

I agree, I think she looks a lot like an ESS.
