I wasn't aware of the Embark test, thanks for the heads-up. The thing I learned from doing 23andMe on myself is to keep nature vs nurture in mind for many things. There are few markers that are a guarantee of specific outcomes.


... off to see if those are available in a 40-tall.
Oh yeah I know, but it's nice to know certain things and be aware of issues right out the gate if there are any! Really I just did the health portion to justify paying money to find out my dog's breed when it doesn't really matter :lol:

I don't know! My informal guess is Boxer + a "hound" of some type, whether that's a redbone, ridgeback, or cur. When we got him they said boxer/shepherd, but had him listed on their site as boxer/hound so :shrug:
Interesting... I definitely see hound as well but his ears throw me...not your typical hound dog ears you know ;) maybe that’s why they said shepherd ...he’s got the boxer colors but other than that I don’t see much boxer... I love to just guess for the fun of it... sometimes the results come in and the dog is something you would never have thought..

He does a lot of boxer boops (aka foot play etc) so that's why I think Boxer myself

Lol! I thought about ordering one for myself too.

I can really see the Marmaduke in him (now that I see those results).

I still call Jix our "teacup Dane"; she thinks she's so small :xflove: even though she takes up a whole sofa and has more legs than a bucket of chicken. :laugh:

She's either that or our "Danish pointer". You'd be surprised how many people think that's a real breed. What would Luke be? Your "Saint Dane" or "Danish Bernard"? :D

He can fold up pretty small! Small for a giant dog at least :p
