Greater Than The Sum Of Her Parts, Pig Is In A Breed Of Her Own

There’s no question that humans have played the lead role in shaping the amazingly diverse variety of breeds we have today, but often times letting nature be more…well…natural, can be far more interesting. And cute. Like really really, ridiculously cute.

Just take a look at Pig, for example. Pig is an adorably unusual mixed breed pup with a short spine who’s DNA results were just recently announced. Channel your inner breed guessing powers and let’s see if you can figure out her breed! (Hint: There’s more than one answer!)
 
Alright, let’s start at the beginning, here’s Pig as an adorable puppy!

Answer: Pig’s DNA test results revealed her to be a Chow Chow, Boxer, and American Staffordshire Terrier mix! But that doesn’t mean that that’s the ONLY breeds she has in her, in fact she probably also has some ancestry in a fairly large variety of breeds, not that it matters too much to her owner, Kim Dillenbeck who told AL.com “To me, she is just 1 in a million. As much as I can see her potential in all these breeds, she is still just Pig.”
Were you surprised? What other breeds did you think might be in Pig’s DNA?
