If you are like us, maybe you adopted a rescue dog and you have always been curious what breeds compose their ‘mixed breed’. Or maybe you have a purebred dog but are curious just how pure your purebred actually is.
Well we reached out to Wisdom Panel, one of the most reputable of the Dog DNA testing companies to finally get some insight into the breed composition of our dog Zuzu. The shelter told us their best guess was that Zuzu was a Labrador Retriever, Border Collie Shepherd mix, and we told that to people for years even if we didn’t really know with any certainty. Since it’s its hard to tell her size from photos, we will telly you she is ~50 pounds.
We used the Wisdom Panel 2.0 Breed Identification DNA Test Kit ($69 at Amazon) and we just got back the results.
We will reveal the results next week, but first, a contest.
Guess the 2 dominant breeds (one from from her mother’s and father’s side). The winner will get a $50 gift card for Petco! If more than one person gets it correct, we will randomly draw one winner from those that got it correct. Submit your guess of the 2 dominant breeds by email (info@DogSpin.com with full name), in the comments below, or on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/DogspinUSA). One entry per person! See all rules and regulations below.
If nobody gets both breeds correct, then we will randomly draw a winner from all of those that got 1 of the 2 dominant breeds correct. If nobody gets either of the 2 dominant breeds correct, we will save the gift card for another drawing at a a later date.
