Barloc

“He is almost 4 and still acts like a goofy clumsy puppy when he plays. He can jump extremely high! He gives more kisses than a chihuahua. He is also scared of my 6lbs chihuahua who is 15 yrs old. He’s got long legs and lots of hair even in his ears. He is extremely passive and handsome. He is good on a leash. He is not destructive indoors. He likes to dig huge holes in his yard. He wants to be friends with all other dogs. He is great with kids. He is the best dog ever! ❤️🥰”

Through Barloc’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.

A1d

Barloc’s Haplogroup

This female lineage can be traced back about 15,000 years to some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs. The early females that represent this lineage were likely taken into Eurasia, where they spread rapidly. As a result, many modern breed and village dogs from the Americas, Africa, through Asia and down into Oceania belong to this group! This widespread lineage is not limited to a select few breeds, but the majority of Rottweilers, Afghan Hounds and Wirehaired Pointing Griffons belong to it. It is also the most common female lineage among Papillons, Samoyeds and Jack Russell Terriers. Considering its occurrence in breeds as diverse as Afghan Hounds and Samoyeds, some of this is likely ancient variation. But because of its presence in many modern European breeds, much of its diversity likely can be attributed to much more recent breeding.

A41

Barloc’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1d haplogroup, we have not spotted this haplotype in village dogs yet. We do see it in 3 breeds: Alaskan Malamutes, Bichon Frises, and Posavac Hounds.

The vast majority of Rottweilers have the A1d haplogroup.

Through Barloc’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

B1

Barloc’s Haplogroup

This is a lineage that is found infrequently in dogs and may only be found in gray wolves and dogs with recent wolf ancestors. It is very different from all known dog lineages indicating a long time between the most recent common ancestor of canids in this lineage and domestic dogs.

B1.1

Barloc’s Haplotype

This haplotype has been spotted in wolves and dogs with wolf ancestry. Not only is that pretty neat, but it also helps move science forward.

The mysterious wolf hides many genetic mysteries unknown to science - like where this male lineage came from.
