Have you always wondered just what your mixed breed dog is? Are his legs short because he’s part dachshund, does she bay because she’s part hound, is her speed because there’s Whippet in there somewhere? Now you can get some answers. The Canine Heritage Breed Test can test for the thirty-eight breeds listed below. All you do is swab the inside of your dog’s cheek with the swab provided in the kit and send it in. It’s non-invasive and you don’t need a vet to do it. Owners and rescue groups can now have more information about the dogs in their care. This could be really useful in explaining behaviors like herding and for keeping an eye out for health issues. The kit costs $65. Of course, I wish they had more herding dogs, like the Australian Cattle Dog, and the terriers seem underrepresented. The company does say it intends to add more breeds. We plan to check Saffron. I’ll let you know what we find out.
