    3-3-19. Aleuna is 3 years old in this photo, and at full physical maturity. She is free stacking in this photo, which means she is standing squared without restraint. dogs are stacked when viewed for conformation or to feel for physical abnormalities. I found out about this technique when she was about a year old, and many photos are of her in this pose so to compare physical changes to her coat and structure.

“I came from a breeder named Robin in Indiana who told my first owner I was 60% wolf, my mom didn't think that was accurate based on my physical traits (phenotype) so she had Embark DNA test me! I 💜 bikejoring, Jeep rides, visiting local breweries, trail riding, and hiking at Red River Gorge. I am 24" tall and weigh 55#. 18% related to Check out my Instagram to see more of my adventures!

Wild Side of the Moon (Aleuna) inherited one variant that you should learn more about.

Degenerative Myelopathy, DM

warn icon

Wild Side of the Moon (Aleuna) inherited one copy of the variant we tested

What does this result mean?

This result does not impact your dog’s health. It could have consequences for siblings or other family members, and you should let them know if you are in contact with them.

What is Degenerative Myelopathy, DM?

The dog equivalent of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, DM is a progressive degenerative disorder of the spinal cord. Because the nerves that control the hind limbs are the first to degenerate, the most common clinical signs are back muscle wasting and gait abnormalities.

Through Wild Side of the Moon (Aleuna)’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace her mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that her ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.







Wild Side of the Moon (Aleuna)’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!


Wild Side of the Moon (Aleuna)’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1b haplogroup, we see this haplotype in village dogs in over 25 countries across the world. We have detected this haplotype in lots of breeds, and it occurs most commonly in German Shepherd Dogs, Maltese, English Springer Spaniels, and English Setters.

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.

Are you looking for information on the breeds that Wild Side of the Moon (Aleuna) inherited from her mom and dad? Check out her breed breakdown.

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 Wild Side of the Moon (Aleuna) is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
