A Case of mistaken Identity

Recommended Posts

So a month ago I posted about Storm our latest acquisition.

After a google image search and much checking of body types and markings I pegged him as a Dutch Shepherd mix.

Even the good folks on Dutch shepherd forums and websites, said yep definitely a Dutchy with something else mixed in.

but I was curious as to WHAT he was mixed with so I got a DNA test, swabbed the inside of his cheek and sent off the sample for analysis.

anyhoo today I got the results back, and boy was I surprised. . . . .

NOT a hint of Dutch Shepherd in him. . . . LMAO

The brindle comes from his 25% Greyhound and the rest from his thoroughly Mixed everything else

Scottish Deerhound, Akita, German Shepherd, Husky (YAY!!!), White Swiss Shepherd and a random smattering of others

He's well and truly a MUTT of epic proportions LOL

Yep me too, probably not another one like him. Unless he has some brothers and sisters.

However knowing nothing of his history. . . . . it's a mystery. :)

That's an impressive combo of breeds! 😀

Hmm with the 50% shepherd, you've got a chance of him being a good offleash guy...
but with the Greyhound/Husky/Deerhound...he may be more similar to a Husky with his recall! 

 

PS You really are a Photoshoppy wizard...the pic of Storm added to your signature is great!
