    Has anyone tried the mouth swab DNA testing for dogs?
    It is supposed to give an indication of the breeds that go to make up a mixed breed dog.
    Anyone had a go? Any thoughts?

    A friend of mine had it done on her cross breed but they don't have a lot of breeds' profiles on the database so it came back with some very random results and isn't reliable as has been mentioned.

    I wouldnt waste my money on it TBH. I mean for all you know they take the money, throw the swab in the bin and send you a 'result'.

    I will never know Millie's exact breeding but I love her all the same. I dont need to know what 'breeds' she is my beautiful Mongral :)
