Poly and her brother were found by a friend of my sister's about 4 years ago (she's 4 right?)- well I might be off on the years, but I know it's been more than 2. They were found living behind a Cracker Barrel dumpster. I think it took two attempts before they were able to catch them because they were both so frightened. The friend rehabbed both pups and spread the word of needing to find a home for the brown one, as they decided to keep the black pup. My sis thought of my parents when she heard the news.

They named her Poly and my mom thought she finally had her a lap dog. But as previous pics showed, Poly liked to sit at my dad's feet on his reclining chair. She also grew a bit more than expected and wasn't quite a lap dog after all. My mom taught her all sorts of tricks though, you name it and she can probably do it! She's a very smart dog.

So any guess before I reveal her identity?

She came out as Level 2 with both Bulldog and Beagle and level 3 or 4 (I forget which) Husky.

Not sure about those results. Beagle I can kind of see, but the others not at all. I'm surprised she didn't come out part cat or fox because she looks like a fox and little tiny cat feet:-)

Stay tuned for Bailey's story and future DNA results!

OMG!!! Your fiance is the coolest guy evah!!! A laptop??

About Poly...I can see Beagle, but Bulldog and Husky, not so much!! Bailey looks a tad Greyhound-ish...maybe some Italian Greyhound and Corgi??? Can't wait to find out! :0

That's quite a combination. No matter what she's adorable and so is the little foxy one.

No matter what her background is she's a sweet dog. Like you I don't really see Bullie or Husky though! I was totally expecting to hear Chihuahua! lol

My guess is Bailey has some kind of sight hound (Italian Greyhound is a good guess, not sure if they're a true sight hound) or something like Basenji.

Cute anyways - no matter what the breed.

I'm with CDN Cowgirl and Melanie. Either way she's cute little Heinz 57. :)

Definite greyhound in there somewhere for Bailey. How interesting!
