I’m asking this again…I got a lot of what does it matter well it does matter for two reasons. Health and Identification. My dog looks nothing like the breed listed on her vet records but they wanted a breed and I told them the rescue said she was a Jack Russell mix.
But she looks nothing like a Jack Russell and is larger than a Jack Russell.
She looks like a Basenji. And I want that added to her records. If the vet will agree to do it. Do you think most vets would agree to do it.
1. I’m concerned about Faconi Syndrome ( a disease common in Basenjis, its kidney issue that develops by the time the dog is 4)
2. If she were to ever get away and we have down Jack russell mix people won’t realize its her.
And the vet even says that she doesn’t look much like a Jack Russell and suggested looking into what she might be.
For health reasons and Identification, and it would help get my idiot neighbors off my back.
So its important.
A simple yes or no answer would suffice.
don’t need any rude: Get a purebred next time, whats it really matter, its not a crime to own a dog that looks like a pit bull (though she doesn’t at all), those kind of answers.
If you can’t give a simple answer you don’t have to answer you don’t need to be rude.
(Addressing those who were rude)
So thank you and it matters.
By the way she has all the traits of a basenji if her ears didn’t flip at the very top (they stick up and the little ends flop and she were about two inches taller I wouldn’t know she wasn’t a pure basenji) she has the coloring and the markings.
So do you think the vet would be willing to add that into the records. (not the computer because they can only have one breed in there but just make a note of it)
I’m confident that she is a basenji mix she looks a lot like a basenji and very much like the mixes I’ve pulled up she has the face of a basenji and the temperment and personality down to a T
Also I will always have a purebred and a mutt in my home
Solarsh: I deleted that question because after I got the third rude attacking answer it wasn’t worth it so I thought I would try again. I didn’t read down very far. Because I didn’t appreciate the tone
Okay people do you not realize how inaccurate DNA breed testing is. Its very inaccurate and its a rip off really not worth the money. Someone told me the other day that their friend had their 100lb dog tested and it came back Poodle and Maltese mix. So I’m a little weary or that
Rescue member I’m not asking if I should change it or whatever I’m asking if the vet will change it……not anything else
yeah advocate thats the kind of answer I was asking people not to answer what does that have to do with anything? I mean I’m asking if the vet will do it now what ever the heck you were talking about. I love my dog and it would be in her best interest to have this in her records, for health and identification
