Default Dog DNA update

Got the results for Bella's DNA. 18 total breeds so Heinz 57 for sure. The top 5 are: Staffordshire Terrier, Border Collie, Chow Chow, Aussie & Boxer. Even has a little Dachshund. I guess her slim build & long legs come from the Boxer & different hounds that are listed. It was fun. I knew she was a mix just didn't realize how much.

In my opinion, Heinz 57’s get the best attributes of several breeds.

That is interesting and fun to know about your pet. My dog is named Bella too. She is a rescue and looks more like a black and white terrier with lots of mixes thrown in. She is the gentlest dog we have ever had around kids. My grands love her to death.

My vet once told me that while she loved her purebred dogs, she thought that mixed breeds were definitely healthier. Each breed has strengths and weaknesses and with mixed breeds there are often strengths in one breed to offset weaknesses in the other. I have found my mixed breed dogs were really healthy. I love mixed breeds but do have some issues with calling them "designer dogs" but that's just me.

Except for an Irish Setter that we had decades ago, we have always had mixed breeds. I refuse to pay huge sums of money for a dog when there are so many pets in shelters that need homes.
