Hello.
My dog passed away over a year ago.
He was a rescue dog and Manchester dogs home didn't know what breed he was...regardless we fell on love with him at first sight.
So, we are ready for another dog and we want to find a similar breed...but don't know his breed.
I'm after a dog dna kit that uses fur as a sample.
Has anybody used a dog dna kit?..are they any good? Know where I can get one?

Thanks in advance

Post a picture of him - someone might be able to answer.

What about old photos, and see if someone can spot breed for you? Sure someone here will be able to help, saves some money too :)

Sorry I can't help and I hope you succeed, but have other people noticed the word mongrel is dying out? It seems every dog type nowadays has a name like labradoodle or chorkie. They were just mongrels when I were a lad.

There's a little picutre icon above the top right of the comment box.

Host your image somewhere else (like imgur), and paste the URL in to the box.

Done.

use http://tinypic.com/ to upload the photo then use the link in here with the little photo button at the top right of the txt box
or use the "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" and just copy it in the txt box here

On a serious note, if you don't need a lie detector or DNA test from Jeremy Kyle, just upload some pictures. I'm sure one of us will recognise the breed. Do keep in mind though, that you may not get the same temperament or nature just because you keep to the same breed.

He's a mix...That's why they didn't know his breed

Its a mongrel. Or as it called now, a cockerolliebradoodledor.

Seriously though, looks like it's got collie in it. Why do you want the exact same breed? It won't make it the same character. I've had border collies all my life and every one was a completely different dog.
#16
They thought a collie and lab cross.
But I've Googled that breed and the pics look nowhere near my dog.
That's why I want a dna kit
#17
Got a bit of a jack russel face lol

Because we are hoping that we can find similar traits and / or delude ourselves in thinking the new dog is somehow related.
I know we can't replace my previous dog entirely.

because the dog is a crossbreed it not a stable breed so there will be a lot of variation in the offspring

Ahhh I see..makes sense :-(
#22
Anyways, any kits?
#23
any pic of the dog standing up (so we can see his stance) and a photo of his tail E.G does it point up. point up with a curve or hang down?

Edit at the moment close to Collie/staffy

just go all out and end your self a english bull terrier. lovely dogs

I rather suspect that even if you did find out exactly which variety of dogs he was , it wouldn't alter the fact that when you go to choose a new dog once again you will fall in love with one, and it won't matter a jot which breed it is. I speak from the perspective of someone who went to the rescue centre to find a cocker spaniel and found a lurcher stole my heart.
Best of luck with finding the right one though.<3

When he stud his tail would be up and curved

looks like a spaniel x Labrador to me
#30
why not go to a rescue home and pick the closest lookalike
#31
He looks a very placid and friendly/welcoming dog. Regardless of his breeding you should try and find a dog like him in nature not looks.

Border and a Bearded Collie

You may want to try Pet forums for better assistance. :)
I would just pop down to my local dog shelter and see if you find a little diamond in the ruff. might be a completely different type of dog and take u by surprise

Edit. I do not know any DNA kits that use hair of the dog.

definitely got a bit of a jack in him
#34
I'd say jack russell springer spaniel cross but your very unlikely to find someone breeding them
#35
You should go down to your local rescue and tell them the things that you liked about your dog, what his nature was like etc. They should know if they have a dog that has similar traits and let you meet them to see how you get on. Good luck.

Collie x staffie x Xmas jumper.
That would be my guess staffie cross collie, maybe 2nd generation mix as colouring is a bit different and the legs look long.
