Bolt's Wisdom Panel Results

We adopted Bolt on Halloween thinking he was some kind of shepherd mix. My guesses were Australian Shepherd, Pit Bull, and Lab. I would have bet money on him having Australian Shepherd!

We got our results today!

He still could have Australian Shepherd (a big chunk is kind of unidentifiable because the mix goes back too far) but it turns out he's a large part American Staffordshire Terrier (Pit Bull). I never would have guessed the setter or chow chow!

My girl who passed away in September was half husky, so the husky in him may partially explain why I was drawn to him.

Oh how cool! I can see the pit bull in his head size. He has a pitty forehead. The husky could maybe explain the markings. So cool. He looks so soft!

I definitely thought his head, forehead, and ears sorta were pit-like, so that definitely makes sense! Someone at the shelter thought he was a husky/shepherd mix because of the markings, but I figured the markings could be explained by australian shepherd, too. I didn't really expect husky to actually pop up!

I'm kind of surprised by the results because none of these breeds are particularly high energy - huskies are a bit and if he has some herding mix in there it kinda makes sense. But most pits I know are cuddle bugs and while he loves to cuddle, he's definitely higher energy than any pit I've met! :P Still a puppy though.

Huskies, labs, and pits are all really high energy dogs especially when they are young. Any of those could be where he is getting his energy levels from.

After reading around, it does seem like some places consider the American Staffordshire Terriers/pits to be higher energy. I never realized that. Luckily we're providing him with a lot of exercise and obedience training. He's super smart and eager to please, but not super confident yet.
