Ever have a hard time deciding between your 2 favorite breeds of dog?
Well, if you find a dog like Braveheart, your debate is over.
Braveheart has an extremely rare genetic quirk called chimerism. His DNA comes from 2 separate breeds: a Husky and a Labrador Retriever. I don’t just mean his parents were different breeds, but that Braveheart actually has 2 different sets of DNA.
In Braveheart’s case, it’s easy to see the 2 breeds of dog — he almost has a defining line running down the middle of his face separating which side is which.
- He has 1 bright blue eye and 1 deep brown eye.
- And he has 1 perky, upright Husky ear and 1 floppy Labrador one.

I can’t decide if this is creepy or brilliant — but if Harvey Dent is ever in need of a dog, what could be a more perfect match than this one?
