I’ve posted about Sam before, he came to the shelter in horrible condition, after months of rehab he was a healthy strong boy!
Well after a year of being adopted his owner decided to get him DNA tested, and we were all interested to see what his breeds would be… While we’re waiting for the results lets take a poll:
What do YOU think?

He looks so much like a Pitt to me! What a sweet baby. 🙂

He looks like a lot of Boxer and Great Dane.

He looks like a pitt, but sort of dane-esque too.

It will be three weeks before I can tell you what the results were, but keep the guesses coming… and any other breeds you think are welcome!
He acts so much like a boxer, in the way he plays… but his mouth looks very dane, but his eyes and head shape look very pitt, but body wise, he’s rather tall for a pitt, but too heavy boned for a boxer… lol It’s a mystery that we are so excited to have solved! 🙂

He’s a cutie, no matter what his breed is. I can’t wait until we get a dog!

He’s adorable. I definitely see pit bull, but I also see some great dane in there too. He’s got those cute, sad eyes like a great dane.

I voted Pit Bull, but I think he’s probably an American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer cross. Just be aware though that the tests aren’t always the most accurate and only tell you what breed it could be out of the ones they’ve actually mapped out.

I think his body looks like a pit bull, but his face has some rottweiler characteristics…

I voted Great Dane because of his eyes and jowls, but he must have pit in him from somewhere. He could not be cuter!

This is so fun! I think he has a lot of boxer, for sure! We got my girl’s DNA tested and I was SHOCKED, she is mostly yorkie and husky, with some papillon and aeradale terrier! I was like, NO WAY!
I can’t wait to see what yours really is! Here is my husky/yorkie/papillon/aeridale:

I’ve heard multiple times that the dna tests are inaccurate.

He’s boxer/pitt 🙂 (and very cute).

I was also going to do this with one of my rescues and was told by multiple sources including a vet that these tests are inaccurate. What was basically explained to me was that they can not determine the breed from DNA and that so many breeds were a combination of other breeds that was far as DNA is concerned it’s basically impossible to determine. DNA can determine lineage in the sense that they can determine if a dog sired another dog, etc.
Since many breeds all originated by crossing other breeds together, I would think that no matter what your dog would come back as a mix of this/that and this/that when he’s supposed to be classified as a purebred. I also googled a while back and came across someone that did the test on their purebred something or other and it came back as a mix of x,y,z.
If I had to guess I’d say boxer and/or pit mix. The big forehead makes me think pit, but the loose jowls scream boxer to me.
