What kind of dog do i have?
For any dog owner, this is probably the question that bugs them the most: What kind of dog do i have? What is the breed? Is it pure? It is not as complicated to find an answer to these questions, as it may seem at first.
For those who have reliable sources from where they get their dog or puppy, it is not a problem at all. But for people who adopt them from shelters or get it as a gift, or get it from some other source, this can be tricky. Even though, a dog owner’s love for his dog is irrespective of the breed, it can be very helpful to know which dog one owns. It can help give your dog a better lifestyle and is often useful for medical purposes.
The first thing that anyone’s common sense would tell them to do is to compare pictures, just get a good quality picture of your dog and upload it in google images search. It may not give the most accurate answer but at least you will end up with a list of the closest breeds. The other thing that can be very helpful is to simply ask your vet, because they know better how to assess a dog’s breed.
If you are still not sure or satisfied with the your vet’s (or Google’s) answer, you can tap at science’s door and submit a DNA sample. Any good veterinary laboratory will have the facility for DNA testing and the it the most accurate way to determine what type of dog do you have.
