Arthur

Mixed Breed

“He is a kind and gentle boy who loves to play and get butt scratches. Arthur is a little afraid of plastic bags, any movement under the covers and unnecessarily loud cars. We are so excited to find out if our suspicions about his breed(s) is right!”

A1a

Arthur’s Haplogroup

A1a is the most common maternal lineage among Western dogs. This lineage traveled from the site of dog domestication in Central Asia to Europe along with an early dog expansion perhaps 10,000 years ago. It hung around in European village dogs for many millennia. Then, about 300 years ago, some of the prized females in the line were chosen as the founding dogs for several dog breeds. That set in motion a huge expansion of this lineage. It's now the maternal lineage of the overwhelming majority of Mastiffs, Labrador Retrievers and Gordon Setters. About half of Boxers and less than half of Shar-Pei dogs descend from the A1a line. It is also common across the world among village dogs, a legacy of European colonialism.

A230

Arthur’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1a haplogroup, we have spotted this haplotype among village dogs in Peru. This haplotype does not occur in many breeds, but it occurs with high frequency in Labrador Retrievers and less frequently in Flat-Coated Retrievers and German Shepherd Dogs.

Haplogroup

C

Haplotype

Map

C

Arthur’s Haplogroup

C is a relatively rare paternal lineage. The dog populations which bear C are a disparate bunch. The Akita and Shiba Inu are Japanese breeds, the former of which seems to have roots in the Jomon population of hunter-gatherers which were present in the islands of Japan before the ancestors of the modern Japanese arrived. The New Guinea Singing Dog, Samoyed, and Alaska Malamute are all disparate breeds that also represent the C lineage. One village dog from Peru also bore this lineage. This wide distribution and diversity suggest C is not a recently expanded lineage. It likely represents a canid lineage which diversified sometime around the Last Glacial Maximum, when the dogs of Siberia and Oceania split off and went their separate ways.

Hb.3

Arthur’s Haplotype

Part of the C haplogroup, we have spotted this haplotype in village dogs in Peru. In breed dogs, this haplotype is confined to the Samoyed and Keeshond, making it a rare find!
