Mystery Dog of the Week
Rosie's DNA test revealed her to be a mix of Miniature Short Haired Dachshund, Boston Terrier, Scottish Deerhound, and Miniature Bull Terrier. None of our listeners guessed a single one of those breeds. Rosie's results are from a Mars Wisdom Panel analysis using blood, not saliva.
The purpose of this game is to underscore the difficulty of identifying dogs based on looks alone. The visual identification of mixed-breed dogs is not a science and is notoriously unreliable. We also recognize that the determination of breed by DNA testing is not perfect and is evolving.
