Must be something along those lines if they work at all as those breeds are in there just missing 2 so id say dogs must just take certain bits of the breeding most people assume that mine is just greyhound not a lurcher I've even been asked how much saluki is in mine 🤷‍♂️ 

I recon so I hope you started realing out the names like big John x little bell x wolfie 🤣😂🤦🏻‍♂️

Personally I don't think they work I think they are used as a tool from the likes of the rspca to prove if you have a legal dog or not if it's a pedigree then it's pedigree if it's a mongrel it's a mongrel who knows what has been put in there over years and years like ours mate 5 dogs in there say if we bred with another dog with 5 or 6 breeds in the dog then I don't see how the feck they could pull all them dogs out of it on a DNA test 

true mate, it was prob to tell, if the dogs in question, were apbt, or  staffxs , and like been said , if they ask for pic of the certain dog, other breeds, most people with bit of savy   ,  can tell with in reason, what gone in the breeds . like not so long back, a girl i see few times with her 2 dogs, one deff a whippet = size/ structure , the other dog, deff got drop of saluki in it , it taller , ear carriage saluki  , it smooth  and bit bigger than whippet . i told her it got saluki in  prob  3/4 whippet . she had the dna , done  and only 2 breeds in it, i told  and i could save her few quid  lol , i told her what she got what they used call a long dog.;)

There are strands of d.n.a associated with a particular breed- if a dogs sample has that particular strand in it then it has that breed in it (they don't test the entire genome-just search for these "breed marker" strands).pedigree dogs are nearly all inbred to fuk so it's simple enough with them or 1st x,,but because genes can shift between chromosomes crosses can have unique combinations of genes (strands)that they dont have on file.  A bit like making a cake - for the first few stirs of the wooden spoon ,you can still see that the ingredients are eggs,flower and margarine (or whatever)_ but after half an hour of stirring you wouldn't have a clue.

Mate I think you’ve about right in what your saying and about it being a bit like a cake

Seen a right nice bull x pup about 9 month yesterday but when I said things the bloke said it were a lab x lurcher and hed seen the parents if the lurcher weren't a bull x then someone could be porking him up or I'm just wrong again

That was my thinking mate they should still be in there I wonder if they dna greyhounds bull blood is still evident in there make up.mate they find out everything with human dna 

A dog will have 20 generations at least! of dilution in a century, humans might possibly only have 3. Worth a thought.

You only take half of each parents genes so if a part of the breeding doesn't show maybe this is why
