All in the Family


Brittany / German Shepherd Dog

We adopted Rico in Guadalajara, Mexico when he weighed just 3 lbs. They told us he was a FRENCH toy poodle and wouldn't grow over 10 lbs. (We knew better) He was so darn cute! He kept growing and growing..... and morphing into different types of dogs. We were sure he was some mix of mostly Standard Poodle and Schnauzer and who knows what else. We finally had his DNA test taken and surprise! At least 25 % German Shepard and 25% Brittany Spaniel.....the rest is too mixed to tell. We used Mars Veterinary for the DNA test. Just wondering if anyone else here has used them. We find it really hard to believe. He is 45 lbs and looks like a "Fraggle Rock" dog. I kind of want my money back, but it is maybe just fun enough for entertainment sake!

Many dog rescues have stopped guessing about the heritage of mixed breeds because when they got DNA test results back -- they realized how wrong their guesses had been. So it may not be the test -- it may be the unpredictability of mutts's genetics.
