Our sister site, the Daily Dachshund and Dog News has sniffed out a potential scandal. It seems DIY Dog DNA kits are labeling a suspiciously high number of mutts as part Afghan and Mastiff — even purebred Dachshunds. Doxie Mama told the Daily Doxie, “I had a friend who did this with her longhaired dachshund who is clearly pure bred, and the report came back with 5 different contributing breeds and Mastiff was near the top of the list.”
We suggest your friend demand her money back.
Updated January 2013: This Wisdom Panel Dog DNA test kit gets some pretty decent reviews on Amazon. Maybe things have advanced in the years since the Daily Dachshund review. Your call.
