Moderators please move this if it is in the wrong section.

The rescue I help recently DNA tested some of their dogs. It was my understanding that these tests are pretty accurate. Now several people here say they are not.... I'm not quit sure I understand why they wouldn't be.

Here are the dogs that were tested and some photos. What do you think they are?

I've seen dogs that look like this that were Pug / Beagle crosses. Seems that people went wild creating breeds and then coined cutesy names - Puggles, and Muggles , and Peagles --- now mind you the ones I saw were very healthy , and had a nose which allowed them to breath and eyes that didn't pop out , so physically better than the pug extremes

I don't put much value into those breed DNA kits . When you have mixes stating they are wolfhound and clumber spaniels , where there may be 3 in the entire country -- when there are better chances there is Bearded Collie and some Lab !!! This is a test that came back . The person who had this dog , Chauncy , knew the parents --- they owned the parents . The Beardie is an agility dog and the Lab is the husbands duck hunting dog . --- both purebred -- accidently breeding -- 4 offspring , kept one, others went to family members , one is employed for fashion shots , another goes to school and is a reading - therapy dog .
They did the DNA for a lark - since the dog can't have registration , they wanted some "papers" - the dogs are spayed / neutered --- The male Beardie is neutered now.

It has some resemblance to my friend's rescued "puggle", but since that's been said, I'm going to guess

Pug/Lab?

Pit and corgi? :)
IDK the shelter had them listed as GSD mixes but I've spent some time with them and I don't see any GSD in there.

DNA said Boxer and Boston. With min poodle, border collie, & corgi was in there but it was a very small amount.

Thanks Jean for the link. :)
