Guys!!! This wild orange dingo turns 12 today! Happy birthday Phoenix! On this 12th birthday, I figured it was about time to find out what makes up such a strong, healthy dog and I’ve ordered an @embarkvet DNA test! He was rescued off the highway in Missouri with his mom and the rest of his litter and made his way to Colorado via a rescue where I adopted him at about 7 weeks old. His mom was thought to be a German Shepherd mix and we do see strong shepherd traits in him. Like most street litters, the Dad is an unknown, but after researching, I’ve always thought Phoenix also portrays a lot of Carolina Dog traits both physical and temperament wise so I am so intrigued to see what his results come back as!
