“Ässä has been found from Monolithos beach, Santorini, Greece when he was about 40 days old. He was packed to cardboardbox with his siblings, 7 puppies. We were having our summer holidays there when we met Ässä and fell deeply in love with him. We took him to vet to have his microchip, vaccinations etc for his passport. So in age of 10 weeks he fly to Finland with us. His hobbies here are nose work, agility and at summertime he loves to go sup-boarding with me to lake! He is really nice dog!”

Embark Supermutt analysis

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

Eastern European Village Dog

Europe is the cradle of many dog breeds which were formed from free-breeding village dogs living in Europe for many millenia. Some of these dogs eventually became the founders of many popular dog breeds today, though most village dogs just continued living on as free-breeding village dogs even after the formation of modern breeds.

Russell-type Terrier

These small, energetic terriers, developed in 19th century England for hunting small game, are now some of the best agility dogs around.

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

B1

Ässä (Sirius)’s Haplogroup

B1 is the second most common maternal lineage in breeds of European or American origin. It is the female line of the majority of Golden Retrievers, Basset Hounds, and Shih Tzus, and about half of Beagles, Pekingese and Toy Poodles. This lineage is also somewhat common among village dogs that carry distinct ancestry from these breeds. We know this is a result of B1 dogs being common amongst the European dogs that their conquering owners brought around the world, because nowhere on earth is it a very common lineage in village dogs. It even enables us to trace the path of (human) colonization: Because most Bichons are B1 and Bichons are popular in Spanish culture, B1 is now fairly common among village dogs in Latin America.

B83

Ässä (Sirius)’s Haplotype

Part of the B1 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in English Cocker Spaniels.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

The B1 haplogroup can be found in village dogs like the Peruvian Village Dog, pictured above.

Through Ässä (Sirius)’s Y-chromosome we can trace his father’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that his ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

Map

A2b

Ässä (Sirius)’s Haplogroup

A2b appears to have split a few times in succession, which means that some of the Central Asian male ancestors of this lineage went their separate ways before their respective Y chromosomes made their rounds. There is not much diversity in this lineage, meaning that it has only begun to take off recently. Two iconic breeds, the Dachshund and Bloodhound, represent this lineage well. Over half of Rottweilers are A2b, as are the majority of Labrador Retrievers and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. While A2a is restricted mostly to East Asia, this paternal line is also found among European breeds.

H3

Ässä (Sirius)’s Haplotype

Part of the A2b haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Brittanys, Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers, and village dogs in Lebanon.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

A2b is found in the Daschund breed.
