I wasn't sure where else to post this, so it's going here...
I was wondering if anyone has any experience with those DNA tests you can buy for your dogs to see what they're mixed with. One of my dogs, Riley, is obviously part Sheltie, but I can't figure out what else she might be mixed with. She's quite fast when she gets running, and has movement like a Whippet, but she also has ticking on her legs like a Spaniel, though I don't really see either of those in her, just the obvious Sheltie part. Has anyone tried one of those tests on their dogs and found it to be a fun little experience? Or a complete waste of time and money? I'm not sure I really want to fork out 60 bucks, but it's something that I've been curious about since I adopted her. I really can't figure out what she is! Haha.
Also, has anyone tried out one of those tests on a dog that you knew to be purebred (you knew the parentage, etc.) and it came back with odd results? Told you that your dog was mixed with something, which you knew to be false?
I guess I'm just wondering if these tests are a waste of money, or if there's any truth to them...
