Lisa was interested to know what breed/s Jurnii had in her so she applied for a canine home DNA test. Taking a swab from Jurnii's cheek, Lisa then mailed it back to the laboratory and we all eagerly awaited the results to find out Jurnii's ancestry!
A few weeks later and the results were back. The report told us that Jurnii one of her parents was a Siberian Husky/ Alaskan Malamute mix. Ms Du knew that Jurnii definitely had Siberian Husky in her and that was reinforced in the ancestry of this parent but the other parent was a more surprising;
Japanese Akita/ Chow Chow/ Shiba Inu mix!
See below the report for a more comprehensive diagram of Jurnii's ancestry.
Lisa has told us that Jurnii is eating all of her food and emptying the bowl. We are really happy to hear this because it means that Jurnii is settling in well and getting used to her new life. She is also gaining some weight. Jypsey is still as eager as ever to play with Jurnii and it's lovely to see her also gaining something from Jurnii's adoption.
Although we knew that Jurnii was happy being in the company of other dogs and cats, seeing these photos of Jurnii with her canine sister Jypsey and the previous ones of her with her feline brothers, makes us all smile.
Jurnii and Jypsey play and rest together, making each of their lives more fulfilled.
