Copley's DNA Test

As previously mentioned we got the results of Copley's DNA test.  Here are the results-

At first glance these results seem a little crazy.  It gets even crazier when you realize the Doberman part of the mixed breed ancestry is only 2% away from the threshold that would have caused the report to say he had a purebred doberman grandparent!

But lets think about this for a second.  We know Copley is a long nosed breed of dog crossed with a short faced breed from his severe under-bite.  Based on our observation of other "puggles" we had determined he was probably only 25% short faced dog.  So 25% pekingese, I can handle that.

Next lets look at the chihuahua part.  We always comment that he has the fur of a "desert dog" plus he does have tiny, tiny feet for his size.

Now for the mixed breed that is mostly doberman.  He does have a deep chest like a dobe and something would have to be thrown into this mix to give him a little size boost.  At 22lbs and lean he is over twice the size of a normal chihuahua or pekingese.

So what do you think?  Are these pictures of a Chihuahua/Pekingese/Doberman?
