Puppy Bowl VII is airing right now on Animal Planet, and since all the “players” are Petfinder alumni, we picked two of them to get DNA tests from our partner, Canine Heritage Breed Test. Today we’re sharing the results.
Read below for Two Face’s results, then come back at 4 p.m. ET today to find out what Jackson’s test revealed.
Most of you guessed Two Face was part Great Pyrenees because of his woolly coat and love of cold weather. But the CHBT test ruled that breed out.
We also knew Two Face’s results would reveal some Boxer in the mix. (His mother, Sissy, is mostly Boxer.) But the second result might surprise you.
“There was no primary breed [meaning neither of his parents were purebred],” says Cat Terry, Luvfurmutts volunteer and Two Face’s foster mom. “The secondary breed was Boxer, which we knew, since we have Sissy. This is the Boxer we rescued after she was kicked while pregnant and her pelvic bone was broken.” (Sissy and her pups survived and are doing well. Find out more about Sissy’s ordeal here.)
Finally, in the “In the Mix” category, Chow Chow was found. Did you see that coming? Tell us below!
But Cat had even more exciting news about Two Face. “Tim Elstun, my fiance, and I adopted Two Face,” she says. “My 22-month-old grandson always called him ‘Mine,’ so his PaPaw decided we had to keep him. We call him Bubba. So now his full name is Bubba Two Face Mine.”
Congratulations to Bubba Two Face Mine and his whole happy family.
Coming up: Check back on the Petfinder blog at 4 p.m. ET to find out other Puppy Bowl star Jackson’s DNA-test results.
