Do you play the dog guessing game when it comes to your pet’s mixed breed? Get answers with the Feed the CESAR® Friendship kit and WISDOM PANEL® Canine DNA Test.
We began our search for a second dog in June of 2015. We already had one princess we affectionately called Eva and felt the time was right to grow our furry family.
Eva is a 6-year-old Chihuahua/Shih Tzu mix and is used to being the “only child”. She is very well behaved and never really gives us any reason to be upset or concerned with her. I have heard that having a well behaved, older dog in the house can help train a new puppy by showing them the ropes.
We didn’t have a lot of requirements, we wanted another girl, she needed to be small so she couldn’t beat up our 4lb Eva too badly and we weren’t willing to spend an arm and a leg. This turned out to be the most difficult requirement. It is crazy how much a non pure breed dog can cost!
We made several trips to the pound in the following months and answered a few ads in the local classifieds. In September we found her. A six-week old puppy. The owners didn’t know her exact breed. The mother was a toy mixed breed Shih Tzu and the father, well in the words of the owner, jumped the fence. So that became her breed when people asked, part Shih Tzu, part jumped the fence. How is that for a breed?
It took Eva a day or two to warm up and actually chase and wrestle. Remember, she was the only child that was content with loves and snuggling. Once she got the hang of playing, she enjoyed it but only in small doses. There are still times she will go find a pile of blankets and bury herself inside to hide and get away from Lily. I get it, I am an introvert too.
Lily’s breed has never really mattered. We all love her for who she is. That is one thing I love about mixed breeds, each one is completely unique. When friends and family come over the guessing game begins. We have heard Dachshund, Corgi, Pekingese, and Beagle. What would your guess be?
I recently went to feedthefriendship.com while I was on my phone and asked them what they thought my Lily’s breed is. Its simple to do, you upload a picture of your dog and they will analyze how your dog looks and take a guess at the breed. Of course, it is all in fun, but it is exciting to see what pops up. As you scroll down, the site provides some information and a fun back-story about your dog’s potential breed. Honestly, I was surprised. I had never thought she was part Yorkie!
Here’s the best part, once you do the picture test you can enter to win a free Feed the Friendship kit that includes a WISDOM PANEL® Canine DNA Test, free sample of CESAR® HOME DELIGHTS™ dog food, and a custom CESAR® placemat!
This is an awesome kit and I couldn’t help but smile as I opened the box!
The WISDOM PANEL® Canine DNA Test tests for up to 250+ breeds, types and varieties, and is simple to do at home. Rub the supplied swabs between the gums and cheek for 15 seconds to collect the skin cells. In approximately 2-3 weeks from the time you send them in, you will have your results!
In the meantime, your pup will love dining on the CESAR® dog food out of the totally awesome CESAR® placemat.
Our DNA test has been sent and we are anxiously awaiting the results. I think we’ll still let the guessing game continue, but now we’ll able to tell them when they are right!
I would love to know, go to feedthefriendship.com and have them guess at your dog’s breed. Are they right?
