LeoRose Let's put it this way, according to her BioPet profile, Ilka's DNA is a mixture of 37-74% Bulldog, 20-36% Italian Greyhound, and 10-19% each American Staffordshire Terrier and Collie. Um, yeah. See any Bulldog?

wildo I don't know how the DNA test works, and I didn't claim to know. I see that the "professional" version also includes "type" in the results while the cheaper home version does not. Perhaps they found a way to differentiate them. I have no idea... The list could simply mean that those breeds are identifiable. If Groens and Tervs differ only based on their coat length and color- then I see no reason why one wouldn't be able to identify it based on DNA- the same DNA that controls coat length and color...

That's pretty funny since the Groenendaels and Tervurens routinely come from the same litter. They must have found something to tell them apart.

Here you can even see them bred together, which can be done in other countries.

MichaelE He looks a lot like Ossie. I always called this color 'fawn'.

wildo The picture is over exposed. He's more red than blonde- though he's not dark like KNPV Mals.

I have both GSD and mals, only thing I see personally is maybe the coat coloration, although my mals are much more "red." However they are also both KNPV so while they look similar, one is much more stocky, but neither one look like your dog. He looks mostly GSD to me, but no one will ever know for sure, call him whatever you want

MichaelE I would spend my money on a DNA test for the MDR1 mutation before anything else DNA related.

Test your Dog for the mutant MDR1 gene. Information from the VCPL at Washington State University.

I would certainly want to know if any emergency drugs or critical care drugs would be able to kill my companion. Not to mention heartworm preventative.
