We Tried This App That Says It Can Identify Your Dog’s Breed And Here’s What Happened

BarkPost was pretty excited when we learned about Fetch!, a new Microsoft-made app for iPhones that identifies your dog’s breed when you take their picture. We took a spin with our pawffice dogs to play Fetch! and see if we could learn a thing or two about our favorite pups. And boy did we.

All in all we were pretty darn impressed. Sometimes, Fetch! absolutely nailed it, but other times, well…

1. Judah Bear
Casey, Judah’s mom, says: “The adoption papers said Judah was a Yorkie, but he grew longer, and now I’m pretty sure he’s an Australian Terrier.”

Fetch! says:

2. Fidel
Jessica, Fidel’s mom, says: “Fidel is a Chihuahua/Jack Russell.”

Fetch! says:

3. Noodle
Jonathan, Noodle’s dad, says: “Noodle is 50% Alien, 50% Meatball. And some say Pug.”
Fetch! says:

A couple times, Fetch! missed the mark:

4. Ricky
Brandon, Ricky’s dad, says: “He’s a Chihuahua, according to the adoption papers.”

Fetch! says:

5. Panda
Val, Panda’s dad, says: “Panda is an Australian Cattle Dog.”

Fetch! says:

6. Lua
Mike, Lua’s dad, says: “Lua is a one year old Australian Cattle Dog mixed with something small.”

Fetch! says:

7. Charlie
Perry, Charlie’s mom, says: “Charlie is a Cockapoo and he gets embarrassed every time I say the word…”

Fetch! says:

And in some cases, Fetch might’ve found something we didn’t know:

8. Pixel
Charlotte, Pixel’s mom, says: “I think Pixel’s a Shiba Inu-ish mix? I don’t know for sure.”

Fetch! says:

9. Ziggy
Zoe, Ziggy’s mom, says: “I think he’s a Pit-Hound mix but I’ve ALWAYS thought he had a little Great Dane in him.”

Fetch! says:

10. Benji
Tazz, Benji’s mom, says: “I think he’s like a Terrier mix or maybe a PBGV.”

Fetch! says:

Fetch! can be played more than once. You can take more than one picture and compare results

11. Toby
Kenny, Toby’s dad, says: “Toby is a Chihuahua-Shiba Inu mix.”

Fetch says:

Nice catch, Fetch! Toby, give us another angle darling. That’s it! Oh… wait…

Or if you want, you can even run the same picture more than twice:

12. Pimm

Stacie, Pimm’s mom, says: “Lol, I have zero for sure theories but have narrowed to MinPin, Chihuahua, Italian Greyhound, Whippet, Jack Russell?

Fetch! says:

And on second thought, Fetch! says:

And, just for poops and giggles, we thought we’d run a few humans through the app. And Fetch! is totally in on the joke:

13. Melissa
Melissa says: “I’m a human, but if I was a dog I’d be a Dachshund.”

And sometimes, Fetch! reveals dark truths about you or your friends.

14: Zoe
Zoe says: “I mean, I definitely think I’m a human.”

Is this dog person… a dog, person??? Remember to use Fetch! carefully. You never know what you’ll find out.

We had so much fun using Fetch! around the pawffice, we think you’d enjoy it too! Download Fetch! and upload your screenshots to BarkFeed with your dog’s REAL breed in the caption and #Fetch
