When we got Leia, she really wasn’t the breed I wanted to get. You see I wanted something really small and fluffy. Something that would be calmer and want to cuddle. However, the kids had found a puggle at a puppy store and they fell in love. I however, did not want to pay that much money for a puppy. Through persistence of my mom, we found Leia at a North Carolina home. She was an accidental litter between two puggles. We went to check her out and fell in love. She came home immediately with us. But is a puggle really a puggle? Leia has the looks of a puggle but we wanted to be sure. DNA My Dog reached out to us and asked if we would be willing to do a test on Leia. I jumped at the chance.
Our DNA My Dog kit arrived in the regular mail! The kit includes full instructions that make it very clear what you need to do. First thing first, as excited as you are, WAIT! The test needs to be done under specific requirements and therefore you need to read the directions and probably wait until first thing the next day!
Getting our sample:
It takes a couple of weeks for the full test to be done. You get a report via email. I loved the email aspect because it was easy to share with Steve!
The first thing you get is a certificate. This tells you the breeds in your dog and what level.
After reading the full detailed report I can totally see Leia’s make up. She has the intelligence of a pug but the digging/sniffing of a beagle. You can find the full make up of your dog for just $69! That’s a great price for knowing what medical conditions to keep an eye out for.
