We completely believe that your dogs are pure NGSDs, I recall us chatting before sending out the samples. We had them noted in our database as NGSDs. 🙂
Currently, we are working to expand out reference panel, but it is not easy. We need at least 12 pure bred dogs of each breed to start, and your dogs are helping us to get closer! They are such an interesting population and hopefully in the future they will also help us to better understand European canines.
We have a blog post about the results, and I think it will help provide more information about what you are seeing.
As our reference panel grows, we will rerun the data and update results, so this certainly is not the final outcome. Another goal of ours is also to find correlations between behavior and genetics, and having them in our research is going to be very interesting! We thank you very much for participating, the information provided by your dogs is very valuable to our research.
