Default Interesting DNA test results and question

My grandparents did the Mars DNA test on their dog, and I'd like to get your guys' thoughts on the results.

Fritz looks pretty much like a pure rottie to me, if a somewhat out of standard one. The DNA test says she is half rottie, 1/4 Swiss mountain dog and 1/4 Finnish spitz.

I could kind of see the swissie although they aren't the most common breed around here. But I don't buy the Finnish spitz at all.

My guess is that breed shares some similar genetic markers with something else - either a different breed that mars doesn't test for or something in the heritage of rotties.

I don't know what that might be though - any guesses? I'll post pics in a minute.
