One simple test may answer some questions you may have about man's best friend.

A doggie DNA test called wisdom panel takes a blood sample from your mutt and then breaks down exactly what breeds he or she is made up of.
Veterinarians say this can be useful if you are concerned about a certain breed's temperament or what illnesses they are prone to.

Veterinarians say the blood test is 95 percent accurate, costs about $130 and results are returned in about two weeks.
