The results are in- Elly is officially a Pug…Mutt!

Here is the breed result:

44.5% Pug

24.5% Chihuahua

9.0% Shih Tzu

8.9% Maltese

7.6% Pomeranian

5.5% Brussels Griffon

I wrote a blog post with a bit more information.

What test did you use Karen? I would love to get Jasper’s genetic testing done. I suspect she might have some chihuahua in her (as much as I try and deny it). 

I can totally see the Brussel’s Griffin now that you mention.

and yes, agree w/Sally … 110% adorabs!

Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Thanks Sally, yes these results are from Embark. 

Besides Gator I know Megastar had her DNA tested at Embark, and Manni is waiting on his results.

Well .. it would appear all the “cool kids” are doing it! And since I googled it, now my Google ads keep popping up with a discount for EMBARK. It must be a sign! 

Thank you!

What? No Beagle at all? That is so funny! I agree that test is faulty…they forgot the Adorable gene percentage.

Wyatt’s DNA test came back as “German Shepherd.” Duh.

So Elly’s Mum was basically a pug with a little pinch of Brussels Griffon? And her Dad was half chihuahua? It was a love match, clearly, and who would have thought they’d give birth to a little wolf cub? heart

Were you told anything re Jasper, Alison? My money’s on a good helping of Basenji… Will be very interesting to see.

And Manni must have Collie in there somewhere, no?

It can be hard to see, the way the breed mixes turn out. I never saw the Rottweiler in Meg (50%), though now I know that it’s there, I do see it very clearly, both physically and in behaviour. 

Meg, Mutt, aged around 10, adopted 31/12/2009. Sudden explosive right elbow fracture 06/12 (caused by IOHC), diagnosed with End Stage Arthritis 03/15, Total Elbow Replacement 08/15, problems with healing leading to skin graft & skin flap surgery, Chronic Infection leading to implant breakdown. Became a Tripawd 9th March 2016.

I’ll see your German Shepherd and I’ll raise you a Bernese Mountain dog.

*sigh*

yeah, that’s actually what we originally thought he’d turn out to be (size-wise). Nope. Hold your money onthat front. There is an Aussi coloring that exactly like that, too. I think Manni’s too small for a Bernese…. hang on, tina, Meg’s a Rottie….😳😳

never mind me. 

Bets are on, people!! 😊

Funny you should say that! Actually … that is what they told me when I met and rescued her. She is not full basenji (no curly tail but it sure is bushy) and I think she looks like an Australian Kelpie so I am curious to find her mix. She doesn’t do the full basenji yodel but she does yodel in the morning (just once while I am getting her leash) and at night when I get home from work if I am not quick enough to put her leash on her. It’s cross between a whine and a yodel. I do wish she would do it more often so I could video it.
