How many times have you been asked: “What kind of dog is that?”

Now you can answer.

With the Canine Heritage DNA test, your mixed breed is scientifically identified against over 100 breeds. The test retails for $120.00, but through a special arrangement, The Sula Foundation is offering the test for $99.95, with 25% of the proceeds going to support the Sula Foundation’s medical fund for treating stray pit bulls and supporting free spay/neuter services and low-cost vaccination clinics. The test kits are available beginning March 20th at Canine Culture and Canine Connection, and also at these upcoming “Swab-a-thon” events:

Saturday March 21st, Bywater “Barkmarket” 9am-4pm

Sunday March 29th, Dog Day Afternoon, City Park

Saturday April 4th, Freret Market

Adopt Guinness at the Louisiana SPCA

Brindle dogs don't have it easy. In fact, they are the second most difficult type of dog to place. (The first being any black dog.) But Guinness is a wonderful striped boy who made it to adoption row at the Louisiana SPCA. Now, after ten days, he may be running out of time. So go pay him some attention!

UPDATE: Guinness is now a Sula foster dog.
