Moxie the Jarkie?

When I adopted Moxie, I was told she was a Yorkie/Maltese mix. As she grew, I began to question the Maltese part, mainly because she had such a short snout. I’ve always been curious about her heritage, so I was thrilled when she received a Doggy DNA test for Christmas!

We all had our guesses about what she might be. We were certain of the Yorkie portion, and guesses on the other part included Pekingese, Shih Tzu, and Brussels Griffon, to name a few. It took about 3 weeks to get the results and the answer was nothing any of us had guessed!

If you’re interested in finding out the genetic make up of your mixed breed dog, I highly recommend Wisdom Panel. Use code ADOPT10 at checkout and you will get $10 off and Free Shipping.

    We had a black lab mix and when asked we told people she was black lab and cute.  The best dog anyone would have wanted, a real lady.  When we have a dog we love breed doesn’t matter, so whatever mix Moxie is you can decide for yourself what breeds she’s made of.
