CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - After Kristen Miranda reported a new way for dog owners to figure out just what kind of K-9 they own -- with a Doggie DNA test -- WBTV decided to give away 3 kits to lucky viewers.
So, three dogs in our area will now know (well, actually their owners will know) exactly what breed of dog they are.
The lucky winners are:
Carolyn Kurth of Fort Mill
Laura Briggs of Belmont
Lisa Matthews of Charlotte
Carolyn Kurth says this about her dog:
"Cassie is a rescue dog from Mitchell County Animal Rescue, Spruce Pine, NC, in January 2005. She has had a very hard life before I picked her face out from Petfinders.com and fell in love. She had a broken jaw, teeth hanging out, and a prior hip fracture. My husband and I spoil her to death but she is the quietest, best watch dog and smartest dog I've ever seen."
Carolyn added: "She is approx. 18 lbs and has a relatively long body compared to her shorter legs. We believe she is possibly a Cairn Terrier mix as she has part of the appearance and also the exact temperament."
Laura Briggs was excited to win, because she almost didn't enter!
She had a hard time deciding which of her dogs to have checked with the DNA test:
