Thread: Doubts of Breed Authenticity

  1. #1

    Default Doubts of Breed Authenticity

    We just received Ringo 2 days ago. He was supposed to be an English Bulldog, but his ears (sticking straight up) are causing some concern. To me he looks like a frenchie. His vet says he may be a mix, or he is extremely rare. Another vet passing by thought he was a Frenchie too. I have attached a picture for you all to look at. Please let me know what you think. Is Ringo an English with weird ears, or does he look like a mix. We are very new to the breed and would love some feedback.

    Awwww what a cutie pie! But yes, that looks like a frenchie. He sure is a doll though! Does his papers say he is English?

    Well Ringo certainly does have Frenchie ears... another indicator would be his size vs his age, and I believe there are test that can be done... did the vet mention anything about that? One thing I can be sure of though, he is 100% cute.

    You probably did, but you must copy and paste the code that the uploader provides after upload into your post

    Ringo is 9 weeks old. The vet says that there are some tests were out there, but the results they received were inconclusive and plain wrong in many cases.

    Yes I have asked about breed testing before. They explained that EVERY test, no matter how 'authentic' your dog is, will show heritage from other breeds. They say it is a waste of a lot of money, because the tests are very costly.
