Doggie DNA Test!

Isn't science something? Has anybody heard about these? They sell a kit now for mix breed dogs to find out what breeds are dominant in their gene pool. I am dying to know what kind of dog Shadow is! I found the test on Ebay for a great price. I decided it would be fun to test Bandit as well. She is very clearly a German Shepherd Dog, but it will be neat to have proof of that. I was just notified that Shadow's sample was recieved by the company. I took a picture of the whole kit they send. It included two swabs to collect cheek cells. Shadow didn't mind getting swabbed, but Bandit thought it was fun to avoid getting swabbed. Then we mailed them back. In a few weeks they will send me a report telling me what our favorite pups backgrounds are!
Any guess on some breeds for Shadow?

Shadow you are gorgeous. I think you are part G Shepherd (your head reminds me of a Shepherd) and maybe some Lab in there? I will be very curious to hear about your results.

We got the same kit for my sister to test Maddie, for Christmas. I haven't heard anything yet...
