Guess My Breed - Enzo the Sato
Enzo is a sato - sato means "Puerto Rican street dog". Not too long ago, Enzo was a stray on the streets of Puerto Rico. Some big hearted people saved him, and Save a Sato shelter took him in.
Enzo spent 5 months at Save a Sato, waiting for a family, waiting for a home, just waiting.....
In late October 2011, we (Piña family) met and fell in love with Enzo the Sato. His past is a mystery. How did he end up on the street? Why was this fabulous dog a sato? These are questions we will never have answers to. One thing we can find out is what is Enzo's breed.
Through the advancement in science and technology we can now know what is Enzo's canine bloodlines! Enzo recently had a DNA test done at his vet office. The test is called the Wisdom Panel. This DNA test detects 225+ dog breeds - check out the list here.
This fundraiser is a "contest" to guess Enzo the Sato's breed!
Check out Enzo's blog at http://www.enzothesato.com to see lots of pictures of him, and read about his personality.
Here is a synopsis of Enzo (as of December 1, 2011)
Weight: 60lbs (underweight)
Height: 24" (from shoulder to floor)
Length: ~35" from nose to base of tail.
Age: 2 yrs old.
Personality: goofy, energetic, playful, clumsy, curious, mouthy, shifty, inquisitive, like other dogs and likes cats.
Here is an example of what the Wisdom Panel reults report looks like. As you see multiple breeds are listed! If you feel confident Enzo is just one or two breeds then guess those, but he may be a mix of 6, 7, 8 breeds!!!
