Hi, Embark just told me that my dog Willie is related to your Archer!

...

That’s so cool! Wonder if they'd remember each other.

Can you imagine?? It looks like we live in the same area - how about a playdate?

I’D LOVE A MEET UP! Just fyi - Archer can be a little shy at first.

18.4% Australian Cattle Dog

A classic cattle dog, Australian Cattle Dogs were developed from a mixture of breeds in Australia in the 19th century, and still maintain their energetic herding instincts today.

12.1% Border Collie

border-collie

Border Collies are highly energetic and work-oriented herding dogs, whose stamina is matched by their intelligence and alertness. While they excel at the herding they were bred for, many Border Collies also enjoy flyball, obedience, and other canine sports. As long as they have a job to do and are physically and mentally stimulated, Border Collies can make excellent companions for the right owners.

9.8% Chow Chow

chow-chow

This distinctive-looking dog breed has a proud, independent spirit that some describe as catlike. Often aloof and suspicious of strangers, the Chow Chow may not be a cuddle buddy, but for the right person, they are a fiercely loyal companion.

4.6% Rottweiler

4.6% Collie

Collies are attractive herding dogs, boasting a beautiful coat while being highly intelligent. They also make for extremely loyal and sweet family pets.

11.0% Supermutt

supermutt

Some dogs descend from other dogs that were themselves mixed breed. These other dogs can give small contributions to the ancestry of your dog, so small that they are no longer recognizable as any one particular breed. We call this portion unresolved or “Supermutt” since it confers superpowers! Just kidding. But we do think supermutts really are super!

Breeds that likely contribute to Willie’s Supermutt result:

  • Wire Fox Terrier
  • Labrador Retriever
  • Chinook
