DNA testing

I was wondering if anyone else has done DNA testing? When we rescued Hoss we were told he was a english and american bulldog mix. The original owners had re-rescued him from someone they gave the dog to who was going to shoot him. But everyone kept telling us he looked like a boxer mix. I really didn't care what breed he was until I heard boxers can have trouble with certain anesthesia meds so we tested him to find out. The test said, boxer/ bulldog for 3 generations and then other mixes past his 3rd generations. I thought it was pretty impressive and the test wasn't that expensive. Anyone else get their dog tested and were you as happy with the results? You can see from his picture he looks like a large boxer with a wider face, cute we think.

I haven't done something like that but I have some relatives who have. From what I know they were not really satisfied because some results were inconclusive..
