Italian Greyhound + Boxer = Harvey??

For Ryan's 30th birthday we had Harvey's DNA tested at Petco.  After waiting, and waiting, and waiting, I went online to see what was taking so long.  I googled the DNA company and found a link that had user comments.... about 75% of the users said stuff like "What a joke!!!" or "Good for a laugh, bad on my wallet!"  I was bummed.... we really wanted to know what he was.  We were told when we adopted him that he was a "Short-haired St. Bernard."  We googled that, and he DOES look like one, but he is 90 pounds, which is pretty small for a St. Bernard.  Well, I got the DNA results yesterday in the mail.  The results?? According to a professional DNA company, Harvey is primarily boxer, with Italian Greyhound ancestry.... Really?! I definitely see the boxer.  I always tell people he's a St. Bernard/Boxer mix.... but an Italian Greyhound mix?! I don't think so.  :)

  1. I believe it! Look what genetics did to us! I don't look Swedish at ALL and you don't have an ounce of German peasantry. Maybe WE'RE Italian, too... :)
