TORONTO, June 24, 2015 /CNW/ - Who's Your Doggy? That's the question
that DNA My Dog, a genetic lab specializing in Canine DNA breed
determination analysis, will answer.
This test will tell you the breeds in your dog through the dog's unique
DNA My Dog continues to see the runaway success of their Canine DNA
Breed test in assisting in speedier dog adoptions in rescues and
Shelters have seen an enormous upswing in dog adoptions based on DNA
testing which allows adopters to know the breeds in the dogs they are
considering adding to their family. The DNA My Dog test is also the
most affordable on the market and allows for a larger number of
adoptions with the low pricing offered to shelters and rescues.
"Shelters often use their best guess about the breeds of the dogs they
are adopting. It is impossible to know the true breeds without knowing
the pedigree of the parents which wouldn't normally happen in a rescue
environment," says Mindy Tenenbaum, President of DNA My Dog.
"Especially with puppies who can change their looks almost daily."
Knowing the breeds helps to speed up the adoption process, since many
people like to know what is in store. Potential adopters like to have
breed information to assist them with training and wellness for their
new pet. They can have an idea of the size, exercise requirements and
possible temperament of the dog.
According to the American Pet Products Association's 2012 statistics,
almost 17 million dogs will be adopted in the U.S. A large number of
those dogs will be of unknown heritage.
There are numerous examples of dogs that were waiting months for
adoption and were adopted within a week after providing DNA test
Coralee Knippel of Sierra Vista Animal Control in Arizona is a big
supporter in DNA testing of shelter dogs. "It is wonderful when we can
provide adopters the DNA test results so they know the breeds of the
dog they are adopting," says Knippel. "Of course we hope they will love
them no matter what, but it really does speed up the adoption process."
"And that is the essence of the test," says Tenenbaum. "It will satisfy
your curiosity but in the end we know the dog will be loved no matter
what surprises are hidden in their DNA."
