Dog description

Smart, energetic, enrapt in one sense at a time, and a cuddler!

Dog summary

Skinny and dehydrated, Swizzle decided to adopt us one cold November day five years ago.

Quirk

She roots around, rearranges the blankets and sleeps under the covers!

Does best

If we stop petting her or rubbing her belly she lets us know she wants more by lifting her paw and touching us. We never taught her that, she just does it.

Fun Story

I will never forget the joy that oozed out of her entire body as she splashed and splashed chasing a leaf floating down the rain water streaming in the street gutter.

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.
