    Hi Guys,

    I am new on the forum and just wanted to post a picture of one of my lovely rescue dogs and also share an experience with you.

    This is my rescue dog - Duke. Around 40kg which means he is very tall. My husband found him under a bin when he was a few months old (along with 6 other siblings). We had no idea what mix he was but the big paws were a clue to what we would end up with. We wanted to know as much about him as possible so we could train him and care for him correctly so we bought one of those genetic tests. Anyone care to guess what the results came back with?

    We think he is mainly a Galgo (Spanish greyhound) Mastin cross. However, the genetic test results said he was Cocker Spaniel and French Bulldog!! As a 5-month-old puppy, he was already bigger and heavier than the max weight they predicted. How we laughed!!!
