    Default Puppy DNA Test?

    When I got little Pepper Potts, I was told by her previous owners that she was purebred. Me, personally? I don't care. She's my Bully-baby. I think she's stinking cute.

    My husband, on the other hand has more than a healthy curiosity regarding our newest fur-kid's origins. The DNA testing of dogs was unheard of even when I was Vet-teching it up a few years ago. So, my question is, has anyone done it?

    She could be part Wholly Mammoth for all I care, but I kinda want my husband off my back. He's such a booger

    You should have AKC papers on her showing her lineage. DNA testing will not prove anything unless you have the sire and dam to test also. Reputable breeders will do DNA on their males for stud, just in case there is ever a problem or question on the sire being used.

    We have nothing on her since she was a rescue. the previous owners had to rehome her. Like I said, I'm not all that worried about it. I figured we'd need sire and dam to do any type of testing. I'm not breeding her so either. Ah, well. He'll have to get over it.

    I know nothing of it, but I think it is a few hundred to get the test done isn't it? Maybe that will get the hubby to accept she is pure

    Ooh yays! I thought so, too, and her vet even told me so. Of course, what do I know? I'm just his wife and I wanted the dog
