Mutt Monday!

Who's your daddy!?!?!?!?
We all know who Zoey's Mommy is.... I mean, don't you see the resemblance of the overwhelming cuteness!?!?!?
But we've been wondering for some time who that baby daddy is. So, we broke down and got us a DNA kit. Any guesses????? What do you all think Miss Zoey monster is a mix of?
The shelter said they thought she was a Australian Shepherd/Collie... but my first guess was a German Shepherd/Border Collie, and lately I've been adding some sort of hound to that mix. But truly, we have no idea. Is it important? Well, no, not REALLY. It's more of a curiosity thing, but at the same time, it is important. It'll give us a little bit of insight as to what potential health problems we need to be on the lookout for, and maybe knowing a little bit more about her characteristic behavior traits might help us find some specific training techniques for her breed. So there are a few reasons other than just curiosity. But mostly, we'd like to solve the mystery :) We sent out the sample (just a swab of the inside of her cheek) on Saturday. It says the results take about 2 weeks... In the mean time, tell me what your guesses are!!!!


  1. I'm going to agree with you and go with G.S/B.C :)

  2. i think maybe, just maybe a basingi (however you spell it, the brown and white dog above the G.S.) a bit of border collie and maybe some ausie. shep! Just a guess.

    Her mom could have been a mix and then another mixed male could have bred her? who knows!

    I'd like to find out what my dog Floyd is. i think def. a boxer with maybe a little hound,american bull dog/pit mix.

    If you don't mind me asking how much does that DNA sample cost and where did you order it from? B/c if Floyd does have pit in him, some places we go on vacation need proof he isn't a pit! which is DUMB! He is the sweetest dog ever in my eyes!

  3. So fun!! I wonder what she'll turn out to be!

    P.S. I just saw that you live in Southern Florida!! My husband and I just moved to the Naples area in August... It's quite an adjustment from Chicago!! :)

  4. I stumbled across your blog and its great! Can't wait to find out the results. Its like watching Maury, except without all the drama :)

  5. I'm a horrible guesser so I'm just going to say how excited I am to find out!

  6. Zoey is so CUTE!!! I have know idea what breed her daddy would be though...she looks like a good mix of all of the guess :)
