Guess Penny's Breeds

April 21st, 2009, 12:47 PM
We just received Penny's certificate of DNA breed analysis :goodvibes:. Only two breeds are specified, one primary (one of her parents is a pure breed), one secondary (other parent is most likely a mixture of two breeds, one of which is the same as the other parent). Any one care to take a guess :D?

I say one parent was pure lab and the other a GS lab mix :)

I would love to get Buddy done.....where do you get it done, and about how much does it cost?? (if you don't mind sharing :o)

Labrador is right but none of the secondary breeds mentioned are correct. I know that I never would have guessed it myself :D.

I always though lab/dane but I see that is wrong. :D

So, I'll go with the lab/greyhound or lab/whippet. :shrug:

How about if you tell us if the "other" breed is also a large one? :D

hazelrunpack
April 21st, 2009, 01:46 PM
On second thought, after looking at the pics again, I'm gonna stick with Setter... She's a'pointin' in that one pic! :laughing:

Mat&Murph

I will go wit Hazel on this and say setter

Or mybe mastiff LOL

Flat coat retriever???

luckypenny
April 21st, 2009, 01:49 PM
A couple little details about her...she weighs approximately 58 lbs, she eats almost twice as much as Lucky and Ava who each weigh about 65-70 lbs, she's super active, super smart, and loves to play fetch/retrieve. She also has the funniest sense of humor, often tricking the other dogs into giving up their toys to her. She even tricks dh into getting up in the middle of the night (she rings the cowbells on the patio door for him to let her out) and by the time he stumbles to the door, she's made a u-turn and steals his spot on the bed :D.

Ok well that sounds like a basset hound but that is absolutely impossible...:laughing: Actually no it doesn't sound like a basset except for the appetite.

This is a tough one LP.

Someone's gonna have to protect him from me when he gets home from school today....he keeps changing the password on the computer too :D.

I think the other breed is about the same or just a wee bit larger :shrug:.

Or mybe mastiff LOL

BenMax

She has to be a hunting/retrieving breed...think, think....

rainbow
April 21st, 2009, 01:59 PM
How about if you tell us what colour the other breed is or can be? :D

Mat&Murph
April 21st, 2009, 02:00 PM
It has to be pointer or Golden retriver

This has got to be my favourite thread. I was scrambling...:laughing:

Thanks for the mind twister LP.:D

We had Lucky done last year and were told that he's either not on the list of 100 breeds they test for, or he's the King of Mutts :D.

But seeing Aslan was right on with Penny, she surprised me when she said Lucky is part Coyote :eek:.

Next testing is Ava :D.......That will be fun!

April 21st, 2009, 02:16 PM
Awww, I missed all the excitement thanks to a hard to get rid of telemarketer. :frustrated:

So lab/golden cross def explains the feathering. :D

But I am surprised that she only weighs 58lb. :o

luckypenny
April 21st, 2009, 02:17 PM

I never would have guessed it either and I'm her mom :yell: :o. Wonder if this is going to make it any more difficult the next time I try to convince dh we need a Golden to add to our brood :D.

Just looked it up and both Golden and Lab females average 55-70 lbs. Athough she's quite muscular, I guess she's on the smaller side :shrug:. Don't know anything about her history other than she wasn't socialized well and was found wandering a country road when she was about 5-6 months old. I'm just glad she wandered into our hearts :cloud9:.

I think Penny looks more like the American (field) lab than the English (show) lab.

Thanks for those interesting links rainbow :thumbs up.

I had this idea earlier...if she's only a mix of two breeds, I was wondering if there was a breeder(s) in the area she was found. So I did a bit of research and found only one in the town right next to it (she recently moved out of that area). She breeds Labs and Goldens :rolleyes:. Has 4 males and 7females that she breeds. I'm wondering what the chances are that Penny belonged to an 'accidental' litter.

An interesting idea. :D I know a setter that bays... Turns out the breeder that produced her breeds both setters and hounds. So is the baying a learned behavior or the product of an accidental exchange of genetic material in an unsanctioned liaison, so to speak? :o I wish her owner would run one of the DNA analyses on her! Might be very interesting... :rolleyes:

Might not have been accidental at all :rolleyes: There is a "kennel" in BC that produces 4 different purebreds plus they also use some of those to cross breed for desiger mutts for a total of 8 different "breeds" produced :rolleyes: :frustrated: :loser:



Penny is just adorable :lovestruck: I would've thought Lab x Flat Coated Retriever since she looks much more the flat coat type than a golden :D
