Maggie – Golden Retriever Rottweiler MixJanuary 16, 2011 • By AllMutt
From Tammy: Maggie was abandoned at my brother’s business 14 years ago at the age of 3 weeks. She was the most adorable puppy.Everyone had a theory as to what she had in her,from Boxer,to Akita,to Collie. I became more and more curious as she grew and had a DNA test done last year. I found that she was 25%Golden Retriever,25% Rottweiler and the other 50 % is made up of too many breeds to detect! So she is a “true” mutt. She is a loving,funny dog,but protective. While she does not resemble Rott or Golden in looks,she does have the protective instinct of the Rott and the gentleness and hearty appetite of the Golden. She used to have a black mask,but her face has turned white with age. She weighs 75 lbs and rules the roost over my other two dogs,Lulu,a German Shepherd and Doris Day,a Chihuahua. My vet and I think that the other breeds are likely Husky,Collie,Akita and Corgi,among other breeds. She has a very dense,plush coat and loves the snow.
