Tell us about yourself: New to Dutch Shepherd life. Adopted Mercy from a rescue on May 8th, 2020. She was born on January 22, 2020. Labeled by rescue as a Dutch Shepherd mix. The more we get to know her, and learn about DS, the more we see this is most definitely true!

So, just got results back on our little rescued DS mix by Wisdom Panel. Shows her to be 50% Malinois, 25% asian/guard/herding groups, 12.5% lab, and 12.5% Pointing Griffon. We knew she would be a mix of things, but to not see DS in there at all was a bit surprising! Learning that the Pointing Griffon is a Dutch breed though, and wondering if that DNA from far enough back in her history could somehow relate to other Dutch breeds...like the Dutch Shepherd? Now I am curious to try another test brand...

I did Embark for the breed ( I didn’t get his papers) but mostly for the health since I didn’t get his papers. Any relatives here???
