DNA Test

Post by centrop67 » Fri Oct 13, 2017 12:46 am

Just caught a post on one of the Facebook groups. It looks like they've added Dutch Shepherd Dogs to the Wisdom panel.

Thoughts?

If you rescued would you consider the test now?

Best part for me was the Facebook poster's dog is named Radar.

As a public service to the forum, I've purchased a test for both Radar and Leela.

(Also, I'm curious) :mrgreen:

Results coming soon...

Tell us about yourself: Hi,
Short and sweet here- I'm a father of 2 boys, a carpenter, hunter, runner. We have extensive experience with sled dogs, shepherd mixes, a wolf hybrid, and our current dog a 95# long haired Shiloh Shepherd. I'm looking for a more energetic dog that had the same intelligence and trainability. I'm interested in advice, opinions, and a place to share experiences.

Radar's results are in :wtg:

50% DS
25% Mal

Would he still be eligible for the Photo Contest? :huh:

Still waiting on Leela's results... :whistle:

In the meantime, I have a code for $15 dollars off a test kit. First to respond gets it.

Well, I got bad news on Leela's results. Apparently, I didn't get enough DNA on the swabs for them to analyze.

Leela's breed was more in question to me, so this is frustrating. I was pretty certain about Radar.

So, now I have to do it again and wait.
