|I definitely see Duck Tolling Retriever. I don't see any BC in her, but if you didn't know the dad, he might have been a BC, or at least part, which would explain her puppies looking the way they do.
DNA tests are a gamble... some seem to have accurate results, but others are way, way off. I've heard about people who have purebred, pedigreed dogs, and with a little extra money to throw away they decided to get a DNA test to see what it would say. Long story short, their tests came back with all sorts of weird results not even close to the dogs' actual breed.
Ava's came back saying she's 75% Westie! I found out a couple years later that the earlier tests would often replace "unidentifiable breed mix" with West Highland White Terrier, which would actually mean that Ava is 75% unidentifiable, and that makes more sense. Mutts bred with other mutts to make mutts that would breed with other mutts and so on... After so many generations it becomes impossible to identify any certain breed. But still, I don't hold much faith in DNA tests.
