dog DNA breed tests--good enough for insurance co.?
I'm shopping for a new homeowner's insurance policy and many refuse to quote me because I have a mutt of alleged pitbull heritage. I don't absolutely KNOW he's got APBT, but I was told he did when I adopted him.
I rescued my dog from a shelter where he had been dropped off with his littermates. The owners claimed they owned his parents and knew what breeds/mixes they were but how knowledgeable about dogs is someone who ends up with an extra litter of puppies when they own both parents?
So I'm being honest and answering insurance people based on 3rd hand information from people that I think are idiots.
Would it be ethical for me to base my breed assessment based on one of these DNA breed tests? (Assuming that my doggy came back with no "bad" breeds, of course!)
