Dog description

Oliver, a terrier mix is a rescue who has lived with 3 yrs. He had three previous owners, in UT and CA. Color is golden with black markings like a Yorkie. He is ebullient and energetic. His previous owner said, “Oliver has 2 speeds: 0 and 60.” He chases birds, mice, and cats and digs for voles. He likes people more than other dogs to whom he’s always submissive. He's more of a watch/guard dog rather than lapdog. Cropped tail; 25 lbs. He fetches and he is a kisser, oh is he a kisser.

Dog summary

He looks like an Ewok, but inside he's a lovable wolf.

Quirk

He raises his muzzle to the sky and howls like a wolf when he hears a siren. So it's fun to watch NatGeo wolf movies with him. He's gentle, though, and has never bitten anyone.

Does best

Oliver is a lover. Oliver loves people and you get on the floor or in bed he's on you in an instant kissing your face and neck until you surrender.

Fun Story

Oliver is obsessed with toys and still has two from puppyhood including one we call his Hamburger. He takes a toy wherever he goes including grabbing one every time he greets people at the door.

GENOMIC BREED MIX

What are these results saying? How did we get there?

We're trying to determine all the breeds and "non breeds" in your dog's ancestry - 80% of dogs on earth don't have breed ancestry at all!

In these Version 2 results, we predicted your dog's mix from the 101 breeds with open data for validity. Here, we applied a more accurate method using an improved breed reference panel.

If your dog has unusual ancestry, we may not have an accurate match - yet! As our reference set grows, your dog's results might evolve, so check back for updates and new information as new data becomes available.
