Dutch Shepherd or Coyote?

Post by Jason34 » Fri May 26, 2017 5:55 pm

We got Luna from a rescue organization here in Houston about a month ago. She gets along very well with our male German Shepherd, Zeke, and she displays personality traits that are in line with a GSD. We'd never even heard of a Dutch Shepherd breed until a friend suggested that Luna might be one. What do you guys think? We've sent her DNA off for testing, but I'm not sure if the lab even tests for Dutch Shepherd. Any feedback would be appreciated.

DNA testing is a waste of money.. There is no DS in there. I agree that she is a GSD mix
