Tell us about yourself: Accidentally adopting a Dutch Shepherd when I had no idea about the breed led me to research and act on all of his needs. This site was a key component to making things right for Radar, so when the original owner was calling it quits, I stepped in to keep the site running.

I see definite DS traits....4 legs, with paws attached, and a tail. Must be a DS.

Of course who am I to saw, I thought my pitbull was a DS.

Wow.

Leela is 17% pit bull!

She's also 7% chow an 7% akita.

Can anyone else guess what she's 55 and 14%?

Despite fitting 90% of the conformation for a mal, there is no mal in her.

Hmmm. You know, that kind of makes me suspicious on results. Does she have any Akita or Chow traits? Both breeds are so distinct. And just how many Chows and Akita are our there that they keep coming up in breed results?

But my guess is lab.

Are we to assume that one parent was a full German Shepherd or that both parents were half pure German Shepherd ? lol

Similarity in body type, but obviously not color.
Which leads to a question; genetically speaking, which traits are more consistent in lineages- color, or morphology?
