So I have always wanted to do this and I finally did.  I ordered the Mars Wisdom Panel DNA kit for Biscuit and the results are in. What do you think he is? My guess is some type of terrier mix. Look at that face laughing

Sooo exciting!! And we get to see a picture of the adorable Miss Biscuit too! It’s a good day!!

I certainly would “think” she has some Terrier relatives! Maybe even wouldn’t be surprised is there was a little bit of Golden Retriever mixed in her heritage too.

Obviously the dominant gene is……the CUTENESS gene!!! How.long before you get the results?

How old is Biscuit now?

I’m glad Spirit Daisy is watching over you both. She’s a very good Guardian Angel 🙂

Lots of love to you Marla

Sally,

To this day I regret never doing this for Daisy. My babies have always been mutts but it is so much fun trying to figure out what they are. Biscuits results are in…I just want to know if anyone can actually guess it. Looks can actually be deceiving winker

Marrrrrrrlllllaaaaa! It’s so pawesome to hear from you! How’s life on MO these days?

Everyone, if you’re new here, you must catch up on Marla’s amazing angel, Daisy. She was such an incredible dog! Click on Marla’s avatar photo and you’ll see a link to all the posts she has written about her.

So I’m thinking Biscuit is….Wolfhound / Terrier?

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Biscuit is only 16 lbs. so probably not Wolfhound. laughingFunny that is what I always thought Daisy had in her…wolfhound/lab mix. Wish I had done a DNA test on her.

I think you’re spot on about Daisy’s generics. Wolfhound, Lab…maybe some Sheepdog and a bit of Schnauser (?)

Now, back to Miss Biscuit. Okay, add maube Jack Russell, a small bit of Cocker Spaniel…I still think a Golden Retriever somewhere in her past way back…a touch of Poodle?

Sally,

You got one of his breeds correct. He’s 50/50 Poodle and Chihuahua…a Chi-Poo!  I was sure he was going to have terrier in him laughing

Rene-I don’t post often anymore but I am always lurking on here keeping up with everyone.

Hope you all are enjoying your holiday!

HMMMMM….OKAY! I can see some Chihuahua….can see the Poodle too. But NO TERRIER??? SAY WHAT’?’?

And it seems to be saying that one parent was a Chi and one a Poo…and nothing inbetween!! Pretty darn specific!

Okay, we need some more pictures of Biscuit! Got to study them a @ittle more closely! 🙂

This is fun!! 🙂

He’s a designer dog (aka intentionally created mutt). He is an F1 cross of a Chihuahua and a Poodle. Those are the only breeds detected going back 3 generations. Who the heck would have guessed that… not me. Lol.

And because you can never have too much Biscuit here’s another pic. Spoiled much? winker
