Can Wisdom Panel identify the breeds in a dog that was born outside the UK?

The Wisdom Panel test was developed using pure breeds primarily from those found on the American Kennel Club and The Kennel Club (UK) registry lists. If your dog was imported from a country/region other than Canada, mainland US, Western or Northern Europe or you suspect that your dog’s ancestors are from outside these countries/regions; his breed ancestry may not be well represented in our database.

The UK Kennel Club would like to draw your attention to this official letter from Mars Veterinary about the limitations of the Wisdom Panel as a method to resolve disputes with purebred dogs.
