Calvin, we have his DNA!

Posted by

For everyone that has followed Calvin’s story over the past year and a half, we have some exciting news, his DNA.

When I first met him, I was told he was a pure breed Pit Bull. At first glance, and I am fully aware I need glasses, I said, no way.

I had guessed that he was a Pit Bull Akita mix, maybe some Labrador, maybe Husky. A person on one of the blog posts did say that she thought she knew Calvin’s father and that he was a super duper friendly Husky that they use to go hiking with.

Other people weighed in over the past year; boxer mix, American Bulldog cross, Pit Bull Labrador, but nothing was definitive.

His owners finally did a DNA test, more out of curiosity.

Calvin is –

100% American Staffordshire Terrier on one side.

50% American Staffordshire Terrier, and 50% Akita, Siberian Husky, Mix breed on the other side.

And 100,000% love! Now we know where his gorgeous giant head, tiger stripes, big brown eyes, and love come from! Nancy





  1. Now that you know, what has changed????????? I’ll bet that cost more than a bottle of really good wine! I’ll take the wine and love the dog even more!
