hmmm... how reliable is this test?
I can't believe it didn't show up any Border Collie! In the 2nd pic of her that's all i see! Ah, who knows!

I still want one though for my pup! he's a pure mutt too! I've had breed guesses ranging from BC's to Yorkies to Corgis to Westies to Many Many things! lol

Where do you get the tests?

Oh and don't be put off about sharing the results, most of us aren't perfectionists! lol, we're just up for a bit of banter

As I said, the brindle doesn't have to come from either the beagle or the Terv; it could come from any of a dozen un-testable breeds. It's not like they are trying to pass her off as a F1 beagle/terv cross. Neither parent was a purebred.

Yes, the dog is basically just a mutt. She does happen to be one of the most spectacular natured dogs I've ever met, with a hound's incredible tolerance for everyone and a herding dog's focus and trainability.

I've bought the kit for another friend for Christmas because I know she'll get a kick out of it. I'll be sure and keep the results to myself.

I missed out on the banter before, but I like to be entertained. I've been thinking of having one done for Buddy. Just for kicks. The horror!

I'd love to do one of these for Sierra, just for kicks. I get so many random guesses from people it gets almost frustrating when I say she's a mutt and they insist she's "part this" or "part that".
