Default Gusto's DNA Test

Okay, spurred on by Tucker's test, I finally broke down and got one for Gusto. If anyone wants to play along, place your guesses here!

Gusto this fall:




Baby Gusto:




Littermates as puppies:






Gusto with the only littermate we still "know" last summer:


Mother was *supposed* to be a purebred border collie. I don't believe anyone actually ever saw her. Amish rescue litter, possibly from a farm, possibly from a puppy mill? So possibly an F1 cross.

I died a little over that first puppy pic. His little nose was so cute!

How much does he weigh?

He's about 28 lbs. 17.25" at the withers.

Those darn puppy pictures are why he's in my house. I saw them on Facebook and needed him.

I love him. I love the white line down the black face. My boy looks like that too. But he's a chihuahua jack Russell cross so I'll guess something else for yours haha

I'm going to say...border collie boxer.

I could have no idea what I'm talking about, but I think he looks like a border staffy. Maybe with something else mixed in. Whatever he is, he's adorable!

The litter was actually listed as border staffy! I think that Gusto and the sister we know as an adult grew up too light in body to keep up that guess, but they were the two lighter build dogs in the litter (and who knows, maybe more than one sire?). But it isn't a way out there guess for sure!

I think his littermates owner (who has a couple of purpose-bred border staffies) believes them to be border/rat. Definitely a fair guess! Gusto is the only one I see Boston in, but I've definitely thought that for a while. Those creepy bug eyes...

I was thinking border x boston...

Quicksilver bred some border x rats and they look quite different imo.

Min pin or Boston? A coworker of mine has a min pin/Boston mix, and he has a croup and tailset just like Gusto's- he's smaller though. Have seen individuals of both breeds with similar tails, so I'd guess maybe either . Would expect to see more substance in a boston mix, and potentially B/T markings in a pin mix (since some BCs are pointed), but those are my 2 guesses even so

ETA: Would have expected at least one brindle pup in the litter if they were Boston mixes?
