I did two different tests on our Barkley. He looked like a golden, just curly fur. The first test was a cheek swab that asked for a photo. I didn't send the photo and they ended up sending me another swab kit. Our veterinarian did it for us. It came back as only Golden Retriever. It only tested for 65 breeds so I was skeptical. When Wisdom Panel first came out they used a blood draw from a veterinarian (is that still the case?) and tested for 135 breeds (more or less). They did not ask for a photo or anything and it also came back Golden Retriever. We just left it at that because he had 100% of the golden personality and spirit. Even if he had come back a total mish mash of breeds we still loved him totally and that's what really counts!
