Does Your Dog Know Who It’s Daddy Is?
If your dog is named "Luke" ... he probably knows who his father is. But what about poor Skippy, Lassie, Beaux, Duke and all the others? Dogs in New Orleans will soon be able to use DNA testing to find their fathers (sort of.)
So what breeds are in your mixed breed? Mutt owners in the New Orleans area are going get the chance to find out. The Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter will benefit from “Who’s Your Daddy?” for doggies as part of Pet Fest 2012. The DNA testing will be at a reduced rate of $50 instead of the usual $75. The shelter will get $10 from each test. Pet Fest is being organized by a doggie day-care center called Central Bark New Orleans. It will be held November 18th.
