Adi

Mixed Breed

“Adi is from North Shore Animal League. We are her second owners. I don't know much about her past, other than the fact that her name was Artemis. She is very nervous and timid if she doesn't know you. Once you gain her trust, she will not stop kissing your face. Adi can be aggressive towards other dogs. But again, once she trusts them, she loves them with all of her heart. Adi lives with 4 other dogs- a golden retriever, a morkey, a shihtese and another mutt. Her favorite dog is the 6 lb morkey ”

A1b

Adi’s Haplogroup

This female lineage was very likely one of the original lineages in the wolves that were first domesticated into dogs in Central Asia about 15,000 years ago. Since then, the lineage has been very successful and travelled the globe! Dogs from this group are found in ancient Bronze Age fossils in the Middle East and southern Europe. By the end of the Bronze Age, it became exceedingly common in Europe. These dogs later became many of the dogs that started some of today's most popular breeds, like German Shepherds, Pugs, Whippets, English Sheepdogs and Miniature Schnauzers. During the period of European colonization, the lineage became even more widespread as European dogs followed their owners to far-flung places like South America and Oceania. It's now found in many popular breeds as well as village dogs across the world!

A464

Adi’s Haplotype

Part of the A1b haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in Miniature Schnauzers.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

A1b is the most common haplogroup found in German Shepherds.

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

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