  • Name That Breed – The Answer!

    Posted by Dan from Madison on March 18th, 2012 (All posts by )

    Back on November 21 of last year we played our first game of Name That Breed. There were a lot of good guesses in the comments. Below is the subject, our dog Jameson.

    Well, we had his DNA run at the vet and below the fold I will put the results.

    Half Airedale.
    Quarter Bouvier.
    Quarter Mutt with the best chance that some of the mutt is Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

      You sure the Mutt quarter isn’t ALF?

    2. Sgt. Mom Says:

      Well, glad to have that mystery solved … although I also think he looks a bit like ALF, too.

      I still haven’t seen that dog yet in person but every picture of him looks hilarious

      Although as I said probably wouldn’t seem too funny if he was running me down :)

      He is super friendly under correct circumstances (need to be introduced) and a perfect farm dog. Gives warnings when something seems awry. We are pretty confident that he would easily tear apart a coyote or fox if they were trying to poach the chickens as he is about 90 pounds now fully grown and has enormous teeth and is quite strong. He has already assumed a defensive stance for my wife when approached by suspicious looking or unknown indivduals and that is great as well. He just loves it at the farm. What a motor on that dog.

      Is that a human femur he is chewing on?

    6. Dan from Madison Says:

      For security reasons I am unable to answer that question.

    7. John Cunningham Says:

      He looks like an outstanding dog! my current dogs are both mutts, a Doberman-black tan coonhound mix, and a border collie spaniel mix. great dogs also…

    8. LS Says:

      Ah, thought there was some Bouvier in there. Great dogs.

    9. Fred Says:

      part of that other 25% could be the French farm dog, the Griffon.

      Wonderful dogs.

    10. Dan from Madison Says:

      @Fred – for the other 25% they listed six or eight breeds and the % chance that it was in the mix. Griffon wasn’t listed but Pekingese was (only 1.6% chance) along with some other breeds I have a hard time believing so that part of the test might be a bit questionable. The Staffordshire was the most prominent listed under “other”.
