My Mommy owned a Pomeranian when she was first married! They make wonderful, loyal companions! What I don't understand, though, is why Zuri's tail doesn't curl over her back. Both Pomeranians and Shi Tsus carry their tails that way!
Honestly, we don't get it either.
Mom is thinking she's going to get a kit from the USA company and see what their results are. Then she'll let the two companies battle it out.
Maybe she should call Channel Five on Your Side and see if they want to be in on it.
Mom did this primarily for genetic predispositions for disease and stuff.
None of us really care what she is. We know she is a handful, adorable, head strong and funny, especially when she runs into the dog door when the cover is on it - she just did that ten minutes ago and we all BOLBOLBOL'd at her.
I think maybe try another test kit from a different company. What does the vet think she is? I still say she has to be part of the Bichon Master family or even poodle. I do not see Schnauzer or Pommie at all. She is adorable whatever she turns out to be, but I do know these DNA tests can turn out pretty wacky.
What I heard is that there's different levels of DNA. I met a poodle-looking mix and she was actually Level 5 Dalmatian! Some dogs may look small but might have giant breeds in them! So Zuri might me those mixes! Here are what those levels mean:
This category will only report when a dog's DNA contains a
majority of a specific breed (75% or greater). Most mixed breed
dogs will not usually have a breed in this category unless one or
both of their parents are purebred.
This category reports breeds that are easily recognizable within
your dog. While these breeds may have a strong influence on your
dog, each breed listed makes up less than the majority of your
dog's DNA, between 37%-74%. This can mean that one of the
parents was a purebred.
This category identifies breeds that have between 20%-36% of the
listed breed(s). Although still recognizable, a breed at this level
indicates a mix and is often carried down from the parents of your
This category represents 10%-20% of the breed DNA, usually
carried over from previous generations in your dog’s ancestry.
Although it is a smaller representation of your dog’s DNA make-up
it is often still recognizable.
This level represents the lowest level of breed found in your dog,
occurring at 9% or less. Although not always physically apparent,
it still appears at a low and measurable amount in your dog's DNA
