PHOENIX - April 25, 2014 - PRLog -- If it just so happens that your faithful four-legged friend looks like a cross between Albert Einstein and Scooby Doo, you may find that it’s anyone’s guess what kind of canine shenanigans created such a unique mutt. For most mixed breed dogs, Fido’s family tree is a puzzle that neither you nor anyone else can solve with absolute certainty. Here’s where Doggie DNA Testing comes in: Thanks to the wonders of genetic testing, not only can pet parents find out exactly which breeds contributed to their adorable mutt, but prospective pet owners can also choose the right dog breed match for their lifestyle

National Celebrity Dog Trainer and “NY Times”bestselling author, Harrison Forbes, a frequent guest on the “Today Show”(NBC) as their featured resident dog behavior expert, will be talking about this exciting new trend in pet ownership at the 2014 Phoenix Pet Expo. Forbes will be partnering with local shelters and rescues to conduct DNA profiles on several of their pets available for adoption, as well as offering DNA testing on-site at the 2014 Phoenix Pet Expo.

“Doggie DNA Testing can offer important information for those looking to adopt a pet,”says Forbes. “It’s an unbeatable tool to predict everything from a dog’s full-grown size to their temperament. DNA Testing can help match you with your Canine Soulmate, plus it can also reduce pets being returned to shelters. If a prospective pet owner looking for a mellow medium-sized dog knew from Day One that the puppy they fell in love with at the shelter would likely end up as a high-energy 100-pound dog, it would reduce the ‘surprise’factor that can contribute to the re-homing of pets.”

Harrison adds, “From a health perspective, knowing your dog’s foundation breeds allows for pre-emptive health and veterinary care too. For instance, certain breeds may have a lot of skin allergies. If DNA testing shows that your dog has a lot of that breed in it’s genetic make-up, then you can adjust Fido’s diet to help prevent skin allergies or ask your vet to keep an eye out for other potential breed-specific health concerns. Simple preventative measures like these can save pet owners thousands of dollars.”

The Phoenix Pet Expo will also feature opportunities for fan photos and autographs with Shorty Rossi and his canine co-star, Hercules, (Animal Planet’s “Pit Boss”& “America’s Cutest Pets”), along with more than 200 exhibitors, live entertainment and demonstrations and a Petfinder.com mega-adoption area with more than 250 rescue pets available for adoption. Low-cost immunizations, discounted microchipping and free nail trims will also be available for all the furry friends who need them.

The 2014 Phoenix Pet Expo will take place on Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 10am to 6pm, at the WestWorld of Scottsdale. This FREE, indoor and air-conditioned event will attract more than 12,000 attendees along with their furry, feathered and reptilian pals who are looking to enjoy a new and one-of-a-kind experience where all pets are welcome. All well-behaved pets can attend, as long as they’re on a fixed lead (or in a carrier) and have proof of age-appropriate rabies vaccines.
