|cokiethebaby||That sounds great! I would love to know the results of your test,,,i still cant believe how much they look alike!|

Thank you, this is helpful! I had heard of one place but it was $99.99 so this is great. I just clicked on the site and they are doing a $10 off promo for Halloween!
Bentley will be 13 weeks tomorrow I'll have to let you know if he ends up with similar mixes in him.

Oh my goodness! Bentley and Bella do look a whole lot alike! they say everyone has a twin,,guess it is so in the doggie world too
How old is Bentley? Bella is will be 17 weeks tomorrow
I got my test off eBay and used my eBay Bucks for about half of the price, (the ebay bucks made me feel like it was cheaper anyway lol),,the total was $50.00 and it took 3 weeks for the results, the swaps in my pack were not cottony q-tips but were spiral bristles, i took the sample first thing in the morning so i could mail it that same day (10-7-13),,i wasnt able to get like up in between her gums but she did lick and lightly chew on it, she hadnt had anything to eat or drink or play with the cat or our other dog either so i was hoping it would be a clean sample,,i activated my kit online at their site, even though they got my sample a few days later it didn't get into the system until a week later after mailing it,,i watched the status and got the results exactly 3 weeks (today 10-28-13)
thought maybe that would be helpful in case you did get one, i got the Wisdom Panel Shelter Test,,not sure if its any different than their Mixed Breed tests, but you can got to their website and check out the Q&A's there and other info: Dog DNA Test, Dog Breed Test - Wisdom Panel Canine DNA Testing | Wisdom Panel

|Msmaria||Welcome to the forum. Can't wait to see your pups Halloween costume ha ha|

I don't think it's silly at all. Actually, you've made me interested in getting one too. Our Bentley looks similar to your Bella...I'm wondering if he is more than a "Shepherd/Lab" mix (what was told to us by the adoption place).

Update on Puppy Bella GSD/Mix Breed
Ok dont think i am silly for getting one of those Shelter Dog DNA Tests (curiosity got the best of me), but i found a great deal on one from Wisdom Panel,,,seems to be accurate,, full GSD from one parent and the other parent is a American Staff Terrier and Mix,,on the other test paper for the Mix of the one parent it had Irish Wolfhound & Boxer and few others, Bellas black "saddle" is fading and has faint white lines on her shoulder blades and white on her chest
Bella went this past Friday to the Vet and now weighs 22 Lbs and is 17 inches tall on all fours (few weeks ago she was 8 lbs with my first post/thread) ,,she is very long and has gotten more skin around and under her neck,,she is very good at training! I am thinking she will be more of a GSD in a lot of ways...and if not we are still happy we have and love her crazy!
...if those pics dont show then here are 2 links (pic and test results):

|vwitt||Really tough to say at this point. I see the german shep but hard to tell what else there is right now. The small white blaze on her chest (and feet maybe) could be a clue. But definitely adorable! Maybe wait a few weeks and post updated pics?|
