Mystery Dog, April 30, 2013

Mystery Dog of the Week


PBLNR listener Roxanne submitted this picture of her handsome boy. His DNA test revealed him to be primarily American Staffordshire Terrier, with one parent being a mix of American Staffordshire Terrier, Boxer, Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Scottish Deerhound, and Border Terrier. Ironically, after a visual inspection, this dog was found not to be a "pit bull" by Miami-Dade Animal Services.

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.
