Groucho's DNA results - what do you think?
 
We've wondered about Groucho's exact lineage since we got him - his breeder papers list his dad as "toy poodle type" and his mom as "miniature dachshund x Pomeranian cross", but a lot of people wonder if he has some Schnauzer or terrier because of his scruffy look, or some chihuahua because of his size...

We looked at a couple DNA kits at the stores that were $100+... then someone at the park recommended [url=http://www.DNAmyDog.com]DNA My Dog[/url] - $60, they send you a kit, you take a couple swabs from the dog's cheeks, and then send them in. 2-3 weeks later...

Well, I'll let you all take a few guesses before I share the results :)

(Yes, I know these things aren't 100%... I don't think any of them claim to be... seems to come pretty close though!)

I have no idea what he is mixed with but I must say he is as cute as a button.
What a little gem!:cloud9:

Affenpinscher mix?

Melinda January 25th, 2012 08:36 AM

serenamlambe January 25th, 2012 08:42 AM

I have no idea what he is, but the suspense is killing me! :D

Alright, here it is...

Which largely matches the breeder papers. No doxi, detected, but it could just be too small a percentage.

As my wife puts it, "He's just a poodle with a bad hair day."

I must be blind because I'm so not seeing that! He sure is cute though.

Soundy January 25th, 2012 02:17 PM

We figure, looking at him, the body and hair are very like a long-haired doxi (body is very long with a bit of a barrel chest). Legs are definitely the poodle part, and his snout to me look quite poodle-like.

That's so cool. I want to do that with my dog. I wonder what markers they use to differentiate between breeds? Even so, it sounds like a lot of fun to see what you get!

Such a snazzy certificate! Very cool! :D
