Last spring, we won a free Doggy DNA test from our vet.
Our dog Rock is a mutt or a "mixed breed" as they call them. We always knew he was a Lab mix. And guessed that his other part was Bull Terrier--Pit Bull and/or Staffordshire Terrier.
We as the McFrugals and especially me as Mrs. Super Practical, would never have thought to pay for a test (around $100 value) to find out what exactly his breeds were. I mean, we love him and all... But he is a dog.
But it was a fun win and cool to find out! We finally got around to redeeming our prize a few weeks ago and just got his test results back last week.
What we thought: Labrador Retriever and Bull Terrier (Pit Bull and/ or Staffordshire Terrier) Mix.
What he is: Labrador Retriever and American Staffordshire/ Vizsla Mix.
I'd never heard of the Vizsla breed before this-- a hunting/working dog with Hungarian origin. Very interesting...

We do find it highly amusing that Rock now has "papers" along with Breed Ancestry Certificate with Statement of Authentication!
