One wonders if this research will lead to DNA identification of
ancestry for those of us with ambiguous mixed breeds.

i hope DNA identification of breeds isn't used to further BSL... some
existing legislation is very vague, including phrases like, "any dog that is
determined to be a pit bull or pit bull mix by animal control". the fact
that we *can't* tell a dog's breed for sure is something that has often
worked against BSL. i sure hope this doesn't nullify that argument...

Same article, different take on it.
I especially liked this section:

"In addition to the virtually identical genetics of Belgian sheepdog and
Belgian Tervuren, the study also showed five pairs of breeds with very
similar genetics: Alaskan malamute and Siberian husky, collie and Shetland
sheepdog, greyhound and whippet, Bernese mountain dog and greater Swiss
mountain dog, and bull mastiff and mastiff."

Woohoo, go figure, the Belgian Sheepdog & the Belgian Tervuren were
virturally identical! grin
