    We did the Wisdom Panel DNA test to see what kind of dog our Humane Society rescue puppy would turn out to be. According to the results, his grandparents were:

    1 full-blooded rottweiler
    1 mixed breed

    1 yellow lab/ siberian husky
    1 german shepherd/ mixed breed

    So a large breed mix. The mixed breeds detected were mostly Japanese Spitz and Neapolitan Mastiff, with a tiny bit of Akita, coonhound, and Welsh terrier.

    But he's yellow! I think he looks like a yellow rottweiler with a slightly huskyish muzzle. But my only experience with dogs is small dachshunds; this is my first large breed (he's in training to be my livestock guardian dog).

    What do you think he looks like/ will look like?? He is 13 weeks old.

    What a pretty boy! He should make you a nice guardian. Did the humane society know anything about where he came from? Sounds like he is a real Heinz 57. We have some GSD / boxer / something mixes that looked a lot like him as pups, they look a lot like fawn colored boxers with longer heads now.

    Heinz 57 is right :)
