Nina - doing a DNA test for our Basenji/? mix.

We contacted MMI in Davis, CA to do their canine test. While many have speculated on what she is and isn't, we wanted a real answer to "Who are You"! For $80, we'll have the results back in 4-6 weeks, and will post a definitive answer. We been amazed at the numbers of forum users who have taken a quick peek at her. Since there are others of you with a mixed breed and wondering…this might be something to think about.

ALM - Is the canine test through MMI in Davis affiliated with the university? Just curious. I went to UC Davis for my undergraduate degree and remember that their veterinary medicine programs were highly regarded & I vaguely remember talk about dog DNA testing (which sounds like the test you are having done to answer "Who am I" for your pooch 🙂 I was just wondering if the MMI is a private company or if it is affiliated with the school?

Thanks,
Chellie

Hi Chellie-
The company is based in Maryland, been around since 1994, I believe, and is known for doing different animal testing. The test we received came from Davis, CA, so you might be right. Here is the web site…hope this helps.

thanks for the info! My curiousity always gets the best of me when it comes to hearing about anything from Davis, CA 🙂

Hi Chellie-
We had heard that the UC Davis area was very well known for it's vet activities. That said, we're not vets! This was just a way to get a sense of learning what this special dog is, that we've become so attached to. Any answer we get will only make her more special!
