“We rescued our beautiful Abbey Road in November 2022. We understood from the adoption agency that she came to the GTA with a big group from Northern Manitoba. We know she has multiple sisters (one we have been able to meet that also lives in Toronto.) She is the best, silliest, sweetest gal!!”

What’s in that Supermutt? There may be small amounts of DNA from these distant ancestors:

English Springer Spaniel

English Springer Spaniels are an energetic and loyal companion dog, bred for hunting but also popular among families.

Siberian Husky

Bred initially in Northern Siberia, the Siberian Husky is a medium-sized working dog who is quick and light on their feet. Their moderately compact and well furred body, erect ears and brush tail suggest their Northern heritage. Huskies are very active and energetic and are known for being long distance sled dogs.

Alaskan-type Husky

The Paternal Haplotype reveals a dog’s deep ancestral lineage, stretching back thousands of years to the original domestication of dogs.

Are you looking for information on the breeds that Abbey inherited from her mom and dad? Check out her breed breakdown and family tree.

Paternal Haplotype is determined by looking at a dog’s Y-chromosome—but not all dogs have Y-chromosomes!

Why can’t we show Paternal Haplotype results for female dogs?

All dogs have two sex chromosomes. Female dogs have two X-chromosomes (XX) and male dogs have one X-chromosome and one Y-chromosome (XY). When having offspring, female (XX) dogs always pass an X-chromosome to their puppy. Male (XY) dogs can pass either an X or a Y-chromosome—if the puppy receives an X-chromosome from its father then it will be a female (XX) puppy and if it receives a Y-chromosome then it will be a male (XY) puppy. As you can see, Y-chromosomes are passed down from a male dog only to its male offspring.

Since Abbey is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
