Melissa and I have been wondering what exactly we invited into our home. So we found a company that will do a DNA sequence on you dog and match it against know breeds, then provide you the results.
The results are in, So take your guess.
This is a except from the DNA report explaining how they judge the %'s of a dog. Cody has NO level one or two properties. The winner or closest will get either a piece of hand carved woolly mammoth ivory jewelery or something else representative of the north of the boys. Another hint is that he has 5 breeds represented in his make-up. We'll decide the winner on Halloween. Please include your name in your reply so we know who gets the right answer, Thanks.
What your dogs breed composition means
This category is intended to help owners recognize when their pet's DNA contains a majority of a specific breed (75% or greater). If your dog has a strong match to one of our validated breeds, then it is categorized as Level 1. Most mixed breed dogs will not usually have a breed in this category unless one or both of their parents are purebred.
This category reports breeds that are easily recognizable within your dog. While these breeds may have a strong influence on your pet, each breed listed makes up less than the majority of your dog's DNA, between 37%-74%. This usually means one of the parents was a purebred.
This category identifies breeds that have between 20%-36% of the listed breed(s), usually coming from a grandparent.
Represents 10%-20% of the breed DNA, usually coming from a great grandparent
This level represents the lowest level of breed in your dog occurring at 9% or less. However, they still appear at a low and measurable amount in your pet's DNA.
