They didn't send me any raw sequence numbers, just a 6 page report that has a family tree type thing on it that says the great-grandparents and grandparents on one side were pureblood chinese crested and Lab and the parent was a mix. Then the other grandparent was pure Lab mixed with a totally mixed breed and they give you a "5 next best breed" for that mix which was 8.22% St. Bernard, 6.57% Standard Poodle, 4.25% Great Pyrenees, 2.22% flat coated retriever and 2.12% Clumber Spaniel.

They have a paragraph about how the Wisdom panel works and it says the DNA is examined for the 321 markers that are used in the test. The results for these markers were sent to a computer that evaluated them using a program designed to consider all of the pedigree trees that are possible in the last 3 generations. The trees considered include a simple pedigree with a single breed (a likely pure bred dog) two different breeds at the parental level (a first generation cross) all the way up to a complex tree with 8 different great-grandparent breeds allowed.

And that's all I know! Marilyn is a super sweet, wonderful girl and the first mixed breed I've had. I've had golden retrievers and brittany spaniels since 1980.

Desilu: Marilyn DOES look like your Winnie the Pooch except Winnie has a more collie looking face and Marilyn looks more like a lab! Winnie is darling! I love the fluffy black fur with a touch of white. What a sweetheart! Thanks for posting her picture.
