Dexter DNA Guessing game!
« on: May 09, 2016, 09:06:50 AM »
Well Dexter has been with us for over 6 months now! It is his 6th birthday at the end of this month. We have decided that in honour of this (as well as being super spoilt anyway!) We would get him DNA Tested. Dex was handed in as a crossbreed  (chihuahua cross pug) and initially I didn't doubt this! However as all his fur has come back through...his coat has gotten thicker and thicker. Turns out he is double coated  :o he is also considerably larger than any puggy chi cross I have met! So we are suspecting Maybe others in the mix...or a different mix entirely  :D

All will be announced on the 28th (results permitting) but until then I was wondering whether you would like to have some fun?
£1 a guess on the making of Dexter dog! You can pay via just giving. Get your thinking caps on and get googling doggy breeds. I'm intrigued as to what you reckon he could be!

Here are some pictures (if you haven't met the fella himself in the flesh!)







P.s in case your thinking it....we really don't mind what he is, we adore the very bones of him! He is our delightful one off as far as we are concerned  ;)

 :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* I reckon there's a bit of Pom in there, I'll be very interested to see what the mix is as I have the double of him here (well, at the vets having his bits off), he (Mikey) is a bit more like Jasper & was described as a Chi x, he has a double coat too :-*

Oooh fab idea El! Just donated now - I bet Pom x Chi x Pug - I will be amazed if there's no Pom in there!

Made a donation for two tries. I have polled all my neighbours here in Northumberland and our final guesses are:
(1) Tibetan spaniel x chi
(2) Chi x pom x Staffie (this last coming from my OH who makes a habit of operating outside any consensus!)

None of these will be right but it's been great fun. I have also had to restrain those friends who are only doing it to get the daftest names (Chi/staffie = Chiffie; Chi/Peke = Cheek and just don't ask about poodle/shitzu). Dexter is absolutely adorable and we all hope he is enjoying his 6-month Gotcha celebrations.

Haha, love your hubbies guess! I was going to say Tibetan Spaniel, but played it safe instead - I think you might be onto something there!

I've partially convinced myself their could be tibetan spaniel there...it's mainly due to his body and fur type!
I'm sure we will soon find out! Had an email on wednesday saying it's arrived in their lab and they are getting started!  8) :D

Come on lab (people in white coats - not dog  :laugh:). We are panting to hear the results and you must be even more impatient. In fact, the only one who is probably not much interested is Dexter himself! Now wondering about Tibetan/pug. Will have another punt on Just Giving.

Just discovered that minimum donation equates to two goes so I will throw in the highly unlikely combination of peke/corgi/chi. Yes, I know - but sometimes the impossible is the only thing left  ;D.
