DNA Testing: Can YOU guess Lexi’s Breed? Enter to Win!



Adopting a rescue dog can be rewarding, but it often leaves pet owners asking themselves what type of dog they’ve brought into the family. Many rescue dogs are mixed breeds, and although shelters can often guess at a pet’s lineage, adoptees are left to wonder: what type of dog is my pet? 

Usually the question leaves an owner trying their best to make an educated guess. But wouldn’t you prefer to know what your dog’s DNA says? The Wisdom Panel Dog DNA Test allows you to get scientific results on what your pooch is with something as simple as a cheek swab. 

The test will compare your dog’s DNA to the DNA of over 200 different breeds and determine their breed mix. The test is easy and simple; all you do is swab your dog’s cheek, send it to the lab and in two to three weeks you have results based on their scientific DNA comparison.

We are often asking ourselves these questions about mixed-breed pets who visit Morris K9 Campus. Curious to put The Wisdom Panel to the test, we swabbed one of our own!

Meet Lexi: the two-year-old rescue dog of Morris K9 Campus owner Joanne Morris. Lexi joined the Morris family last year, and ever since everyone has been curious about what breed mix this beautiful girl might be. Lexi has been swabbed and the test has been sent to the lab, but the question remains, what type of mix is Lexi? For the next month we are looking for our readers to make your best guesses of what type of dog her DNA will say she is. 

Think you know what Lexi is? Leave us your guess on our blog, Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest before 11:59 pm on Friday, September 20th. The person who guesses closest to her actual breed will receive a $50 gift certificate to Morris K9 Campus as well as a Morris K9 Campus gift basket! Be sure to check out our social media pages over the next few weeks for clues about Lexi’s behavior that could help you make a more educated guess.

Good luck!
