What breed - the DNA answer
« on: October 31, 2008, 10:08:50 AM »
Have just found this on Amazon.com, not sure if you can get it here in the UK, but it would answer all those questions about what breeds are in my cross breed.

As Dog Club admin I get sent pictures from time to time from people asking what breed is this dog.  They are obvious cross breeds, but with what breeds is nearly impossible to tell.  I think most people now post to this forum their pictures to be identified.

My brother rescued a very young pup from the road side and took it to a vets.  The vet reconed the pup was a jack russell cross and would only grow to the size of a jack russell.  The dog is now the size of a collie!  So it is very hard to get it right.

If you look down the amazon page there is feed back as to what people have found out about their cross breeds.

I am sure about the dogs I have are firmly Dobes.

The thing is Dobes are a very young breed, and some of the origins have come from speculation. Weim and Manchester terrier to mention a couple. 

So what would a DNA test of a Dobe reveal?  Let alone some of the Heinz (52 varieties) cross breeds

There is a funtrivia question which I'm fairly sure mentions Manchester Terrier, Weim and Rottie as being in the origins... not that it is to be relied on for accuracy of course.  :D

Diesel's profile says Belgium.  :) I keep thinking it's Denmark because of the Flemish, though I'm not sure why.  ??? I know he's said it's Belgium before now.  :)

Bwahahaha  :D , nope we not the same person. He (far as i know) is Brit, and yes Teri, i'm Belgian born breed, raised and always will be.
Denmark? Is different language  :-* . Flemish based on Dutch  ;) .
He is your friend, partner, defender, and your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
