Default breed prediction - FAIL!

So I was at the dog park yesterday, and this guy starts talking to me...asking what breed Oakley is & stuff...

So I ask him about his dog...he laughs and goes "he is a husky/lab mix"...I'm lookin around for one, not seeing anything close to that...and so I'm like where the heck is he??

ROFL, this little pipsqueak comes running more than 25lbs. It looked like a long-haired corgi with slightly longer legs, LOL. He is 2.5 yrs old, so def not growing anymore.

THe guy was just like "yah, I dunno what happened...they told me he would be around 60 lbs"

Haha, he was such a cutie though!!!!

Thanks Jessie!

LOL, the people up the street adopted a "beagle puppy" from a shelter. Now she's about 50 pounds of hound dog.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

when I adopted Sierra they said she was a fully grown Dachshund mix (at 28lbs). She grew to 45-ish lbs and is nowhere near a dachshund mix!

Julia: Mom to Sierra (adorable mutt - Basset x Cattledog is our best guess these days) Buddy (noisy but awesome DSH tabby cat) and Carter (adorable human baby) RIP Nya 1994(?) - 2010

My friend did this! Adopted a pup from the rescue we volunteer for (Beagle911)... and it just kept growing! She was excited to have a Walker though, now she feels like she's in the "coonhound club" and we take her along to shows/breed days

One of the first things I learned as a breeder of pedigreed cats is that "recessive genes are forever". So even if you have a pedigreed pet with papers to prove its breed, you can get surprises. In my first litter I bred a brown tabby mom to a red tabby boy and got two lilac (dilute chocolate) kittens (both mom and dad had to carry chocolate AND dilute genes recessively). Later I had entire litters of long-haired kittens. My breed is VERY short haired, Devon Rex, but both Mom and Dad obviously carried the longhair genes (also recessive) from the days when Persians and mutt cats were allowed as out-crosses to expand our gene pool. When you adopt a mixed breed puppy the guess as to what it will look like as an adult is really a better's game. Maybe that's why DNA testing is so popular. My foster puppy looks like he might be a pit bull, but maybe he's a Boston Terrier x Lab? Or maybe even a Pomeranian cross.
