I could try to explain it but it might just be easier to let you see for yourself…
Would you be surprised if I told you I am not really surprised at all? Well, that’s not exactly true. The Beagle came totally out of left field. I mean, really?! Beagle?! But I actually told a friend when I was waiting for the results that I wouldn’t be surprised if Turk had some Weimaraner in him because it would explain why he was such a nervous dog. I mean, nervous in the way I’ve only seen Weimaraners be nervous. And the Am Staff… well, maybe it was wishful thinking, but I just knew he was going to be at least a little bit of a pit. He just had to be.
The breeds that were most present in the “mixed breed” portion of Turk’s genetic makeup were just crazy! I haven’t even heard of half of them.
So at the end of the day, the DNA test established what I already know: Turk is a big ol’ mutt. Our big ol’ mutt. And he is perfect just the way he is.
So what do you think? Did the DNA results surprise you at all? What did you think he would be?
