Dog Breed Guessing Game (win a prize, step right up)

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
Level 1
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.

Level 2
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.

Level 3
This category identifies breeds that have between 20%-36% of the listed breed(s), usually coming from a grandparent.

Level 4
Represents 10%-20% of the breed DNA, usually coming from a great grandparent

Level 5
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.

Good Luck
