    I know and like the people from AFF. They do a lot of great things for dogs. And they do a terrific job of pulling bombproof dogs from shelters. They put a lot of work and training into the dogs they have. But, I don't agree w/them on this point, and I've told them as much.

    I hate how they use DNA testing as proof that visual ID is inaccurate. DNA testing is known to be inaccurate and doesn't even include certain breeds, like APBTs. That really bugs me.

    I find it interesting that they say once a dog is mixed, that it has a unique genome. Pure bred dogs have unique genomes as well. That's why members within an individual breed will also vary.

    I also disagree that knowing a breed mix won't help determine behavior. This dog (left) was in our shelter. He looks like a Heeler mix. And guess what he did when a volunteer took him out for a walk?? He tried to heel someone. I have NEVER seen a dog that looked like a Bully mix try that.

    I think that APBT's and crosses are more likely to be dog aggressive. And there are certainly a variety of breed traits related to behavior, whether it's retrieving, herding, or going after rodents.
