An explanation of the Levels:
This category is intended to help owners recognize when their pet's DNA contains a majority of a specific breed (75% or greater). If your dog has a strong match to one of our validated breeds, then it is categorized as Level 1. Most mixed breed dogs will not usually have a breed in this category unless one or both of their parents are purebred.Level 2
This category reports breeds that are easily recognizable within your dog. While these breeds may have a strong influence on your pet, each breed listed makes up less than the majority of your dog's DNA, between 37%-74%. This usually means one of the parents was a purebred.Level 3
This category identifies breeds that have between 20%-36% of the listed breed(s), usually coming from a grandparent.Level 4
Represents 11%-19% of the breed DNA, usually coming from a great grandparentLevel 5
This level represents the lowest level of breed in your dog occurring at 10% or less. However, they still appear at a low and measurable amount in your pet's DNA.
Are you surprised by any of the results? I never would have suspected beagle. I was fairly certain about German Shepherd, and I figured she had some kind of terrier in her. Many people guess Rottie because of her color and the fact she has not a tail. However, the lack of tail is not because of her heritage. She lost her tail before we got her. (There is a scar that shows there was once a tail) We do not know how. . The biggest surprise, for me, is that none of these breeds explain why Emma has a black tongue. Any idea??
