Wow.

Leela is 17% pit bull!

She's also 7% chow an 7% akita.

Can anyone else guess what she's 55 and 14%?

Despite fitting 90% of the conformation for a mal, there is no mal in her.

Hmmm. You know, that kind of makes me suspicious on results. Does she have any Akita or Chow traits? Both breeds are so distinct. And just how many Chows and Akita are our there that they keep coming up in breed results?

But my guess is lab.

Yes Lab, but at 14%,

She is 55% German Shepherd.

Wow, I would not have guess German Shepherd just because of her body shape.

Are we to assume that one parent was a full German Shepherd or that both parents were half pure German Shepherd ? lol

Similarity in body type, but obviously not color.
Which leads to a question; genetically speaking, which traits are more consistent in lineages- color, or morphology?

Interesting mix!
From looking at the picture of Leela's relative, I would have guessed that dog was part border collie.
