    My vet was saying the yesterday that they have a new system for DNA testing, that it is improved and more accurate now or something, so might be worth it after all lol

    I got mine from Dog DNA Test, Dog Breed Test, ASAP Lab Canine DNA Testing, Australia Wisdom Panel Canine Genetic Analysis
    Cost $90.
    Hooch came back as a mix of Rottie, Bullmastiff, Basenji and Basset hound with abit of Keyshond (forgot how to spell it, that did not make sense but it might be a throwback who knows) thrown in for good measure.
    They did not see a photo of him but the above mix seems to be quite close to the way he looks and acts. He definitely has the Basenji colours and the Rottie/bullmastiff face and thickness of body/chest. So for us it was money well spent. We thought he was a Boxer mixed with Beagle as he is abit sausage-y and catty lol.
    They guarantee their results and give you a certificate.

    Edited to say - I just realised they changed their test. Now they take blood. When I did it a couple of months ago it was a cheek swab. Lucky Hooch!!

    I have no idea about DNA testing and it could be a stupid question but wouldnt any results picked up come from any cross a long time ago? I know Newfie said Newfies are an old breed but they were all cross breeds once? And the crosses as in Margoo's case above, couldnt there have some cav or pom somewhere in the dogs crosses a longtime ago and their just getting the percentage wrong?

    That's what i was thinking cav......every breed probably has many crossbreeds that would come up in the results

    They do. Nero had some 40 odd different breeds listed. But if they're only tracable in 'insignificant amounts' their traits shouldn't show. That's according to BITSA anyway...
