For a long time we believed that Mulder was a Hound-Mix Dog. That’s what the Shelter Volunteers said and besides he’s got the eyes and ears of one. Strangers would always try to guess what kind of dog he was and the more common guesses were German Shepherd, Rottweiler, and Great Dane because of his long legs.
Finally, we were able to get a DNA test for him. The results showed that he is more than 50% Chesapeake Bay Retriever and at least 25% Korean Jindo. The rest contains some trace of Shetland Sheepdog which they indicated with “low confidence” on the report .
What a pleasant surprise! Mulder is not a Heinz 57 (what Vets call dogs with unknown origins) dog anymore. It was eye opening and now we feel that we know him more.
