The first two tips are fun exercises, but the chances of getting a correct answer to “What breed is my dog?” solely based on observation are not that great. Even the person from whom you got your adorable mutt may only be able to give you information for a single generation back, at best. If you’re just curious about Princess’s lineage, or you want to customize a wellness plan for your pet based on breed, a DNA test is best. Mystery solved!

I decided to clear things up by ordering a dog-breed DNA test, which involved swabbing skin cells from Otis' cheeks and mailing them to a lab for analysis. I originally ordered one last year, but its results were so unexpected that I recently splurged for a second opinion — and since other mutt owners likely share my obsessive curiosity, a co-worker suggested I write about what I learned.

A typical reason for a genetic test involves a dog’s health. One Embark customer reported, “I took the test because my dog, Milo, is a rescue. We had zero knowledge of his previous life, so I knew taking an Embark test would help us learn a lot. We were able to find out what his breeds are and if he was a carrier of any genetic diseases.”Hi! my puppy margaret, a mix breed my uncle gave me, looks almost exactly as the tricolor dog with brindle spots that you have in the title picture and in the car seat picture above. what breed/s is/are in that dog? i would presume border collie and?My dog is a German Shorthaired pointer mixed with something else.

Let’s pick one of my favorite breeds, the adorable, inquisitive Corgi: Behold, those huge, pointed ears! That questioning facial expression! That Corgi butt, which in most Pembroke Welsh Corgis comes with that fantastic natural bobtail, a result of a mutation in the ! That’s right, a genetic mutation gives the Pembroke Welsh Corgi that natural bobtail. How do I figure out what breed my dog is? This has to be one of the most common questions asked by dog owners. While it may not always be possible to determine a particular dog's breed heritage, it is getting easier. This leads me to my first point: dog breeds are defined by specific, characteristic physical and behavioral traits. Breed-specific traits are coded for by DNA variants that are at incredibly high frequency in a dog breed . That’s why if I breed a Corgi to a Corgi, I’m always going to get a litter of Corgis. And what if a long legged Pembroke Welsh Corgi does somehow show up one day? It's possible, because those long legs are driven by genetic changes. But it won’t meet , and old antelope-legs’ genes will be bred right back out of the breed.
