Thanks to DNA tests, it is now possible to know more about our origins or those of our animals. So when the friends of Meghan told her that her dog looked a lot like a wolf, she wanted to prove them wrong by doing genetic analysis.

Meghan was very surprised by the test results

Meghan shares his daily life with an adorable dog named Bodhi. His fur is white and tan, his eyes black, and he has big ears. An appearance that is reminiscent of that of some wolves. This resemblance has not gone unnoticed, especially by friends of Meghan, who kept teasing her about it. To put an end to the debate, the young woman then sent a DNA sample from Bodhi to an analytical laboratory.

The results that fell were final. Whether Bodhi looked like a wolf, that’s because he was part one. He indeed had 8% wolf DNA.

Information that Meghan prefers to keep secret

If the anecdote is amusing, it is better to Meghan don’t shout it from the rooftops. Because to United States, the regulations on wolfdogs are very strict. In some cities they are only required to wear muzzles, but in others they are illegal and can be confiscated or even euthanized. A situation that would be tragic for Meghanwhich is very close to its soft Bodhi.

I don’t tell anyone it’s a wolf because I’m worried about the reaction. Collective accommodations are entitled to make their own rules about the pets they allow, and I wouldn’t want anyone at the dog park to know about it, lest they kick me out“, told Meghanin words reported by Slate.

Genetic testing is not always accurate

As Meghan, more and more people are having their dog’s DNA tested, usually to be sure of its breed. But genetic tests only state probabilities. They cannot be used to prove the breed of an animal. Some veterinarians warn about the practice of these potentially misleading, yet expensive, analyses.
