Fun with DNA

We love competitions here at X PRIZE. The photo of this little guy, Gimli, was recently posted in the hall with the question: What two dominant breeds do you think he is?

The DNA test results were announced today, but I thought that I would run the same question by the GLXP community first before giving away the answer. What are the 2 dominant breeds in Gimli? Post in the comments below or @-reply @GLXP on Twitter by 5pm PDT -- I'll send a prize to the closest guess!

5pm and the DNA test results are IN...

Gimli is a dominantly a combination of Chihuahua and Parson Russell Terrier! 

Congratulations to @MichaelA_Parker, who was the closest with a guess of Manchester Terrier/Chihuahua. And honorable mentions to everyone who guessed Chihuahua or a Terrier as one of the dominant breeds!
