++The Mule (the offspring of Horse and Donkey inter breeding) is sterile. Being that it cannot reproduce, I would not consider it in the catagory of "viable offspring". As for the DNA being similar, you also have to have the correct number of chromosomes. Or shall we try follow in the footsteps of H. G. Wells' Dr. Moreau?
