This contest is over! The answer: Saffron is an English Coonhound and Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
Austin Pets Alive is hosting our first ever breed identification contest! Simply guess the two breeds of Saffron at $10 a guess and if you are correct, you will qualify to win a prize. The first place prize will be a DNA test kit from Canine Heritage, valued at $80! There will also be prizes for second and third place, donated from Tazlab, Rogue Collars, and Primal Pet Foods. In the event of a tie, entries will be put into a drawing. Please enter the TWO breeds you believe Saffron to be in the designation box at the donation site. The contest will run from 01/03 to 01/16.
And help us petition against breed specific legislation here in Texas. Besides being ineffective in reducing the number of dog bites and expensive to implement and enforce, it is also very difficult to properly identify breeds (As you will learn in this contest!). You can learn more about the proposed breed-specific bill being presented in 2011 and how you can help make sure it does not pass here.
