Hello from Sunny South Florida!

Hi everyone!

First time dog mom introducing myself. My husband and I recently adopted a dog from our local shelter. They think he is about a year and 3 months but the vet placed him around a 1.5-2 years. He is a real sweetie pie with some separation anxiety.

The shelter thought he was a German Shepard mix. We got a DNA test (are they actually reliable? ) and those results came back as Rottweiler, American Staffordshire Terrier but mostly... Cocker Spaniel... Does this seem accurate? He weighs about 50lbs.



Sorry about the huge picture.

Anyways, just wanted to come say hi! Can't wait to learn from you and chat!

Cocker spaniel???? I would call the testing place again....they will retest him and give you more accurate results....sometimes the dna is contaminated on their site...

Looks shepherd and hound to me! Welcome, and good looking dog!!!

Welcome! I'm in SFL too. I would also recommend calling the DNA place. Most offer a money back guarantee. We did one on Nyla and it came back good so not sure why some are off.
Either way, beautiful pup! Welcome!
