The husband and I have been wondering if Diesel is mixed with another breed. There are just some characteristics that don't quite fit a mastiff. For example, he never stops running, he LOVES the water, he's not as big as expected, and so on. So we've had our questions.
I decided to do a DNA test of him. Just for fun of course cause it really doesn't matter what it says. It won't change anything. Just give us a better understanding about him. I ordered the Canine Heritage Breed Test and it arrived Saturday.
Yesterday, we decided to get the cheek swab. The husband let Diesel in the house. First thing he did was run and grab Harley's toys. I'm thinking GREAT, he's gonna have Harley's DNA in his mouth now. He'll come back as a Yorkie cross! It took the husband and I both trying to wrestle with him to get the swab in his mouth. I just knew he was going to eat it like he does everything. I managed to get a few twists on the swab. Fingers crossed there is enough DNA on it for testing.
Mailed it back to the company this morning and now we wait. Any thoughts on what it may come back as? My luck, it'll say chihuhua/poodle mix. Oh well, it was worth a shot. I'll let you know when we get the results.
