Doggie DNA: Testing of the Tests
Update 1: Doggie DNA Testing of the Tests
Jojo's DNA Test Results #1 DDC Lab
We submitted her DNA samples to three different laboratories who specialize in canine breed DNA tests. As we waited patiently with baited puppy breath, her test results are starting to arrive.
breed’s physical traits are visually represented unless some of the genes are dominant."
"Very loyal to family and usually good with children." Rambunctious for young kids, but does LOVE them!
"May not get along well with other dogs." She is currently in a foster home with two full grown pit bulls and two cats and NO ISSUES at all!
"American Staffordshire Terriers seem to enjoy dog sports such as agility, flyball, rally and competitive obedience." I agree she has the build, desire, and intelligence to participate in such activities.
"There have been reported incidents of American Staffordshire Terriers being aggressive with other pets
or people." Again, She is currently in a foster home with two full grown pit bulls and two cats and NO ISSUES at all!
The second breed result is Bulldog. While it didn't mention American Bulldog vs. English Bulldog vs. French Bulldog, the image they used definitely indicated English Bulldog.
"Playful, calm, and usually friendly dogs." Yes, for playful and friendly. Calm? Not so much!
"Bulldogs are less energetic than other breeds, although" No, Jojo's energy level is puppy like!
There are no other breeds listed on the DNA report.
Will the lab results from the final laboratory be similar to or possibly match the test results we read in the first two results?
Will the results be completely different?
A little more waiting, and our curiosity should be satisfied...
