The Results Are In: Time To Find Out What Breed My Puppy Is

She just got a DNA test — turns out she's 100% that cutie.

Okay, so about three weeks ago, I sent out my dog's DNA to get tested. I got a kit from Embark because everyone kept asking what her mix was and I had no idea. I'm her mother and decided, that's it, I gotta know!!!

I thought it would be fun for people to guess what Harrie is (plus, yeah, I wanted to post pics of my cute pup), so I did a post asking the BuzzFeed Community what everyone thought she might be.

And now the results have come in!!

But I'm not just gonna tell you. That's boring. So instead we'll play a guessing game, and then I'll reveal the truth. Before we start, here's a rundown of Harrie:

Do you think you got them right? WELL, HERE IT IS, FOLKS!!! THE RESULTS!

Me / Embark

She's got lots of breeds in her, including pit bull, Lab, boxer, and even GREAT DANE, which I find hilarious.

17.2% American Pit Bull Terrier
15.8% Labrador Retriever
11.8% Boxer
11.4% Great Dane
11.1% Miniature Schnauzer
6.2% Chow Chow
6.2% Rottweiler
20.3% Supermutt
Me / Embark

She's also 20% supermutt, which in her case means she has trace amounts of these breeds:

What’s in that Supermutt? There may be small amounts of DNA from these distant ancestors:

German Shepherd Dog
Dalmatian
Doberman Pinscher
Lakeland Terrier
Me / Embark

I've been kinda nervous that she'll somehow end up being 180,000 pounds, à la Clifford the Big Red Dog, but Embark also gave me her predicted adult weight, which is 43 pounds.

Me / Embark

We'll see about that, though.

So that's Harrie — lots of different breeds, but 100% cute. Am I glad I did it? Yes!! Because now I have an answer and can brag about all her cool ancestry. Plus, the look on her face when she found out she had Great Dane in her was priceless.

As for who guessed it correctly in the first post, no one got it on the nose (I would have been shocked if that happened), but soooo many of you had amazing guesses, and I loved every single one of them.

Like, this guess was very accurate!!! Thank you, @sandyhambacher!!

Comment that says How fun: great idea: I think your long-legged cutie is a mix of Dane, lab, retriever, a little bit chow and the mysterious fella next door!

So was this one:

Comment saying Labrador, Rottweiler and chow, because of the black spot on her tongue

And this one, too!!!

Comment saying I'm thinking black lab and pit bull. Pitties can get pretty brindley and my old black lab had the exact same white spot on her chest!

But, like, obviiii, this was definitely the most correct:

comment saying by my extreme knowledge of these things and exact calculations she is 45% Cuterian Boopers and 55% full blooded Adorbz

Thanks for playing along, everyone!! Harrie loves ya!!!
