German Shepherd Rescue Dogs Get DNA Tested – You won’t believe the results!

(charming music) – I feel like when I got them
their heads were a lot more fluffy. Hey, I’m Rocky Kanaka, and if you’ve been following
my channel and Dog’s Day Out then you know what these
big teddy bears are for, and if you’re not, I’m gonna fill you in. I’m also gonna share the DNA test results of this amazing dog that will
hopefully be adopted soon and I’ll give you a bunch of updates. Without further ado, let’s
get to these pupdates. (chuckles) Pupdates. Did you get it, did you get that? Did you get that? (upbeat music) Alright, if you haven’t seen
teddy bear Herschel’s story, you’ve gotta check it out. I’ll put the link down below. Stop whatever you’re
doing, go watch that video, and then come back to this. But if you have seen it, thank
you for being apart of that. I mean, the thing at this point right now, has more than a million views combined between YouTube and Facebook, and I think will only continue to grow as Herschel’s story spreads. But just to kind of recap. This big dog has been chained up his whole life in a backyard, and it’s really worn on the dude. I mean, his teeth are
whittled down in the front, most likely from chewing on that chain. He’s been returned to the shelter quite a few times. The last time, I think
someone just dumped him in the backyard with, they
just dumped a bag of food back there so then he
gained a bunch of weight. Since then, Adopt &
Shop, where he’s staying, he’s been working on
bringing his weight down so that he’s ready for adoption but he’s still gonna need
some weight management, so it’s a pretty rough situation. Here’s a dog that is just
now about five years old, he’s just starting his life now. The reason Herschel is so important to me, is on my new show Dog’s Day Out, I take a dog that’s
struggling to get adopted, or just really needs some extra help, we take them out on the best day ever to help raise awareness. But what’s cool is you guys
are apart of that, right? I couldn’t do that without you. Without you guys sharing
and giving me ideas and being apart of that, none of this would be
possible so thank you, and I wanted to do an update video and give you an update on this guy, and also, one of main
comments I got was what is he? I think he’s 100% german shepherd. Because of all those comments, my friends at Wisdom Panel reached out and said, hey, we’d like
to send you free kit so that you can know
exactly what Herschel is. I was really excited about that. Right away, did the test, sent it in, got the results back. I want you to take a
look at these pictures and just think, just guess,
is he 100% german shepherd? Is he mixed with something? If so, what is that percentage? Keep that in your mind and I’m gonna reveal the
answer here in just a second, but first, I wanna give
you an update on Herschel and kind of, where we’re at. I want Lindsey, the manager
over at Adopt & Shop, to do that. Earlier I was over there and
here’s what Lindsey had to say. Alright, here you closer,
I’ll look like a giant. – Oh good, so I can look. – Do we have any applications? – We have tons of applications, you guys have been awesome, and I know everybody really
wants some more information about Herschel and how
he’s gonna be a great fit. We are excited to say that
we’re narrowing it down. We have a few awesome candidates that Herschel will be a
great fit for in their home, and we’re just kinda weaning it out and see who Herschel wants
to make his forever home. – Herschel! (clapping) – Come on buddy! Look to your friend, go get him! – Come over here! Good boy. Seriously, thank you guys. You are a hero if you
put in an application. The fact that you stepped up and said, I’ll do whatever it takes
to help Herschel out, you are my kind of people. Let’s talk about what Herschel is. I’ve had a lot of people guessing. Check out some of these guesses. – I think he’s german
shepherd, brown bear. (laughter) – I think Herschel is a doll. I would say he’s part Akita. – [Rocky] Okay, that’s not a bad guess. – Part german shepherd. – [Rocky] Okay. – Part Sasquatch. – I think he’s probably
80% german shepherd. – [Rocky] What’s the other 20%? – Pekinese. – Okay, here’s what he is, no joke, I’m reading it right from the DNA test. He is (drum roll) 75% german shepherd. So right away, I’m wrong
’cause I thought he was 100. I was like, I’m an expert here and I believe he’s 100%
german shepherd, wrong. The other 25% Siberian Husky. (drum roll) That’s cool! I would not have guessed that. I thought, if anything, I
would’ve that it was chow maybe. That’s what’s so cool
about these DNA tests, so Wisdom Panel, thanks
for sending that to me, I really appreciate it. And speaking of, I put my
post office box address down in the comments below so if you want to send anything. Let’s see, we have… To Rocky and Herschel Bear. A note in here from Karen, Karen thanks! What is this? Ah, he will like that, he loves, Herschel loves plush toys. All kinds of collars in there. Here’s one that I think
will be perfect for him. I love german shepherds. I’m gonna keep the updates going, so again, make sure you subscribe and you turn on that notification button, and also go over to Instagram
and do the same thing because that’s where I
usually post stuff first, so you’ll be the first to know. Expect more updates, coming soon. And I’ll see you guys soon.
